The Indian education system has been subjected to a lot of controversy at all times and till date, the dilemmas and debates over educational issues continue in the country. But still, this system is one of the most talked about systems in the world and it has a good amount of integrity and righteousness incorporated into it. Here comes a snapshot of 5 good things that it clings to.
Indian civilization is one of the oldest ones on the block and has always significantly contributed to the arena of knowledge, thanks to its varied cultural, geographical and traditional background. Astronomy, Mathematics, Physics or Economics, India has always nurtured talents in its cradle and loads of foreign travelers also have streamed into the country for acquiring knowledge and education since centuries. The prudent educational system of the time therefore has strong roots in the cultural richness of the country. In the 21st century, India is a super power in education with an array of world class educational opportunities in its schema.
Holistic educational system
India has always been a pioneer of the “Gururkul” system, in which the bondage shared by the student and the teacher is something unique and special. A comprehensive development of the mind and the soul is observed best in this “holistic” approach to education. The exact format of the gururkul system is missing in the urban set-up of the country today, but the essence still remains and this works to heighten the educational quality and excellence at all levels.
Front line institutions
India is home to several vanguard educational institutions like IIT (Indian institute if Technology), JNU (Jawaharlal Nehru University), IIM (Indian Institute of Management), Tata Institutes and so on. These are all internationally recognized names in the global education industry with world-class facilities and conveniences for students.
The study options in India are widely diversified in all fields of education. One can exercise his preferences in studying offline, online, in-campus, off-campus for a course. Distant learning choices are also available these days. The Central Government has done its best to make the study opportunities flexible in nature to facilitate optimal student participation.
Cost of education
One of the best advantageous points of the Indian education system is its inexpensiveness. Unlike other developed countries in the world, knowledge is clubbed with economy here and any student willing to explore the abundantly spread resources of education in the country can do so without spending exorbitantly.
