Education is the backbone of any Nation. To bring positive changes in a country, we need to change its education system positively. India had remained under foreign rule for a very long time. The foreigner rulers changed the spirit of the education system as per their convenience. It is a proven fact that India was a learned nation well before the arrival of Europeans. It is evident from the rich Indian ancient literature, which is available in every sphere of life. The Britishers ruined the traditional Indian education system and replaced it with the Macaulay system so that they could produce young clerks to serve the British Raj. It is very unfortunate that even after 73 years of attaining Independence; more or less a similar education system is still prevalent in this country.

In the contemporary era, India needs to develop an education system which is the right blend of traditional Indian wisdom and modern scientific knowledge. However, the development and implementation of such a system need the active participation of all the stakeholders like the Government, the policymakers, the educationists, the parents, and the students themselves.

Innovation and creativity can play a major role in rejuvenating education. This edited book is an attempt to consolidate innovative ideas that have the potential to bring improvements in the educations system of India.
