    The contents of this volume are essentially an attempt to catch up with the stakeholders in education, study and analyze their perceptions and the manner these are articulated. These are primarily based on observations, interactions and analysis that emerged from the lecture tours, discussions with experts, teachers, parents and informed citizens. There is a general impression that even when major educational reforms are planned and announced, there is little motivation in the system ensures that these are effectively implemented in the right spirit. It would be seen that the major national concerns in education centre on quality improvement, skill orientation, and value development and nurturance. Everyone expects an environment in school that would be attractive to the learner and let him interact with his 'role models'. It would be a place where every teacher realizes that he is being watched and observed by the innocent young ones who imitate him and treat him as an icon!
    The education system must create learning conditions that lead to the internalization of the democratic values enshrined in the Constitution of India. The process of teaching and learning must consistently strive to inculcate the eternal and universally accepted values of Truth, Peace, Nonviolence, Dharma (Righteous Conduct) and Love. This is necessary to sustain social cohesion and religious amity in the country. Education alone has the unique strength to promote the desire to live together which is critical to the unity and identity of India. Citizenship education must begin at the right stage and can continue all along during education as it would become an asset in the working life. India would enhance its cognitive capital manifold if all of its children get good quality school education of comparable and acceptable quality. It would lead to improvement in the quality of research and innovations which at present is an area of considerable concern.

    t is one of the three goals of Hindu life. It is what the west called ‘erotica’. It is the one we consider sacred. It is Kama. And this is its manual—The Kama Sutra.
    A compilation of seven books, starting with the description of general principles of mortal life that Brahma laid down when he created men and women—dharma (fulfillment of duty), artha (accumulation of wealth), and kama (pleasurable experience of the five senses, to moving forward about the ‘right’ way of life where it talks about many issues including the behaviour and actions during copulation between a man and a woman. A 4th century guide to a virtuous and gracious living, still valid in the 21 century and beyond.    
    Vatsyayana unbashingly talks scientifically and spiritually about what is a taboo today, and emphasises that this book is a must for both men and women. It lays more stress on the fact that women, especially, should be knowledgeable in the arts complimentary to Kama Sutra. 
    The physical beauty of Khajuraho is the manifestation of the beauty trapped in this book, which the west unknowingly calls the ‘manual of sex’. 
    Discover the knowledge of the gods translated for the mortals by the mortals.

    Malviyana is a worshipful homage to the father—angel and architect of the pilgrims of knowledge to the temple—shrine called Banaras Hindu University. Banaras, because it is a Kashi of culture; Hindu, because it flows like the Mother Ganges of cosmopolitanism; and University, because it is a universal city of congregating diversity.
    Homage to Radhakrishnan is homage to the majesty and stature of lndia’s philosopher king, to the teacher and liaison luminary of the East and the West, to one whose voice reverberated across the seas as the voice of India with the ageless wisdom of its sages and seers. It is a homage in soul’s indebtedness to all gurus through a sublime symbol of him.
    Compliments to Kalam should be read as the heart's low bow to the ace patriot and Mother India’s ideal son today. It is homage to eyes lit with a vision of India’s march ahead and glory tomorrow, to a sense of belongingness above all barriers and cramping cabin of spirit, and finally to one for whom knowledge is a ceaseless quest, dynamic as life itself and inspired like love that embraces all.
    My prostrations to each as the symbol and synonym of the son of modern India.
    Please listen with compassionate affection to the lispings of this child. Bless him where he is child-like. Forgive him where he is childish.
