Abstract

The universities and the higher educational institutions, being embodiment of their strengths and collective aspirations, help reshape the idea of developed India. The diversity of the higher education-trained workforce is of concern, as the economy needs scientists and innovators who can work with diverse collaborators in an increasingly open marketplace. Best practices for developing national interest, education revolution, change challenges, and random perspectives are presented. The challenge of changing higher education landscape is huge, and a significant shift in mindset and a disciplined lifestyle are necessary to have sufficient number of high quality skilled workers available on a consistent basis in the decades to come. India can emerge as a global platform for higher education and high quality research with a policy environment which is predictable, transparent and fair. We have to make concerted efforts and investment to achieve progress in certain key areas of education, energy, science and technology. The new developments must make existing education process and delivery systems more efficient and effective. The fundamental reform agenda for higher education will be to improve the quality and competitiveness of higher education and research, and empower individuals and society committed to the progress of the nation
