We can build a Golden India by unleashing the potential of its 1.3 billion people and transforming its higher education system.

With over 1/6th of the world's population, building a Golden India is not just critical for India and its people, it is just as important for the world. With 20-26 million children born each year in India, it is also an urgent issue.

If education is the key to unleashing people’s potential, then higher education, which sits at a critical junction of the society and nation, is the master key. Higher education system includes universities, colleges, and vocational schools. Well prepared professionals in all walks of lives and a thriving research, innovation, and entrepreneurship ecosystem can unleash India's vast potential, address its mega challenges, and make its environment and economy more vibrant and sustainable — i.e. a Golden India.

In the next 35-50 years, India must educate and prepare 700 million to 1.3 billion young men and women for their lives and careers.

So, how is India’s higher education system doing and how could it be transformed to better meet the needs of its stakeholders? The author addresses this central question in this book.

Have you asked any of these or similar questions?

— What could a Golden India look like?
— What would it take to go from harsh realities of today and build a brighter future?
— How could India unleash the potential of its 1.3 billion people?

If you have, then this is the book for you. This book is also for you if you are an educated youth, professional, or someone who deeply cares about India and its future.
