http://www.udaysalunkhe.net The session started with Prof Dr Uday Salunkhe defining education as something one remembers after one have forgotten what one has memorized. He also spoke on the emerging economy where the focus has shifted to speed, imagination, innovation, design and heterogeneity in the workforce. “It is what we deliver in our classrooms today that would decide what society we are going to live in, in the days to come. The future has its seeds in the education given today,” added Uday Salunkhe .

Slide 5:

http://www.udaysalunkhewelingkar.net Sharing his thoughts with the audience, Mr. Dileep Ranjekar said, “Education alone can bring about the much needed social change; it is a very effective tool for the same.” Expressing his concern over the state of education in India and lack of awareness of government policies among educators, he listed inequity, injustice, carelessness at human and environmental level as the three major threats faced by the society.

Slide 6:

http://www.udaysalunkhe.in Anand Sudarsha , CEO of Manipal Education, shared a shocking fact expressing his concern on the skill-front, “Around 93 percent of workforce in any given organization is not adequately skilled or trained for their jobs; they need some sort of repair'. There can be socio-economic reasons for taking up jobs at an early stage in life, without being suitably trained in the relevant skills.” He also spoke of India’s strengths like its huge reservoir of entrepreneurial talent complemented with high aspirational quotient.

Slide 7:

http://www.udaysalunkhewelingkar.co.in Director of IIM Bangalore, Dr Pankaj Chandra, described India as the only researchers’ paradise in the world due to the dynamicity of the Indian society. “The biggest challenge in the context is the dwindling number of academicians. We should look for individuals who are good thinkers, researchers and teachers when taking people onboard,” he stated.

Slide 8:

The speakers agreed that the vast pool of human resources can be turned to our advantage with adequate policy reforms, spreading awareness of government policies and adequate changes in curriculum and evaluation practices. “This approach will help position India as one of the leading suppliers of talented and skilled workforce,” concluded Dr. Uday Salunkhe . http://www.udaysalunkhewelingkar.in
