Education is what survives, when what has been learnt has been forgotten.
The education system in India is considered to be one of the largest and most ancient ones in the world .The history of the education system in India dates back to the first centuries, when the young children were taught in the Gurukuls and Guru-Shishya system was the most common means of education After that famous universities like Nalanda, Takshashila, Ujjain and Vikramshila came into existence and enhance the scope of students. In modern times, the education system in India is divided into different stages or levels which are been provided in numerous schools, colleges, universities and other institutions.
Indian schooling takes basically fourteen years from childs lifetime, starting with the nursery classes where a child learns the basic alphabets of English and other tools of the basic subjects. The idea is to develop the capability of recognizing and understanding the things around the kids. As the student gets promoted to the higher classes, he comes to know about the various aspects of our society. All this time, its not just the books that are included in the course curriculum to develop in him the skills of being a hard working child that believes to go deep in to the concept rather than becoming just a regurgitate, sports and other cultural activities are also added up in the day routine so that the refreshment along with the development of new skills may be developed in the child. Here I must not forget to add a new plan of CBSE for the class IX onwards students which is called CCE, Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation, in which the student will be evaluated regularly and diagnosed frequently not only on the basis of his performance in academics but his interest in extracurricular activities and complete behavior towards the environment.
India’s higher education system is the third largest in the world, after China and the United States. The main governing body at the tertiary level enforces its standards, advises the government, and helps coordinate between the centre and the state. Some institutions of India, such as the Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs), have been globally acclaimed for their standard of education. The IITs enroll about 8000 students annually and the alumni have contributed to both the growth of the private sector and the public sectors of India.
With its plurality and paradoxes, India never ceases to fascinate. And education in India is only on among various other elements that have captured the attention of the world. While the United Nations is worried about the presence of a large number of illiterates, various other countries are amazed by the quality of some of the human resources that the Indian education system has produced. From an integrated and synergic viewpoint educational system constitutes the foundation of the legal, administrative, civic and developmental domains of unfolding India of tomorrow.
