About the Book


India needs drastic structural reform that will entirely change a society that has over-adapted to the industrial model. To carry this out, investment in higher education will be essential.India’s investment in higher education is the lowest among OECD members. The competitiveness of Indian Higher Education is so weak that only two institutions are among the world’s top 500 universities. The root cause of the problem lies in the institutional crisis.

The future of Indian Higher Education – just like the future of everything else – could obviously shoot off in several different directions, some predictable, some utterly out of nowhere. But analyzing current trends in student achievements, government funding, shifting goals, and other gears in the college and university system make it slightly easier to see where things might go from here. Everyone holds an opinion about what needs to be done to fill in the cracks and fix the breaks before they grow too unwieldy to permanently reverse. 

‘ This book‘Root,Throne, andCrown of Higher Education’ is more about the philosophy of Indian Higher Education, the role of various stakeholders in making and breaking the system and wide scope of the system. It also focuses on what needs changing to ensure a more stable, more intellectual future for students.
