Sam Pitroda - chairman of the National Knowledge Commission - keynoting a major seminar on Higher Education Policies in India, China and the United States organized by the Bridging Nations Foundation in Washington, DC, argued that India's higher education system is under deep trouble. He observed that a "one size fits all" system of education won't work for India because "it's so diverse".
Nor will one tongue fit all, Mr. Pitroda. What's preventing you and your colleagues from recognizing this fact? How can your concern about access to education be addressed when the system requires a billion tongues to be replaced? What is your roadmap for higher education in Indian languages? Hello? Hello? Are you there?
Update: Oh oh. Mr. Pitroda actually wrote a letter to the Prime Minister asking for a billion tongues to be replaced with English. Who commissioned these educationist-apologies to head 'knowledge commissions' in India? God save India from these unscientific men of power!
