This book was launched by Honourable Minister of Education of India Shri Dharmendra Pradhan, at an event at Dr Ambedkar International Centre.

Book is Written by international Indian expat, Dr Ashwin Fernandes, who heads QS Rankings in Middle East, Africa and South Asia, who states that this book deep dives into the shifts in higher education that India has faced since ancient times.
Dr Fernandes says “Ancient universities, Takshashila and Nalanda attracted students from all around the world and nurtured them to be the brightest. But fate had a different path for our rich culture. As invasions, annexation, loot and colonisation significantly impacted our knowledge capital. The alterations in teachings buried the original and enriched Indian educational system. We finally broke the shackles of the British Crown in 1947 but have continued to uphold English education, until the game-changer National Education Policy 2020 was released”
He also adds “For the last eight years, the Indian government under the dynamic leadership of Honourable Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi has taken huge initiatives to fill the gaps in the education system and transform it into a progressive one”
India has had a rigid and fragmented higher educational ecosystem, and university student must fit into a rigid structure due to separation of disciplines. The lower emphasis on research at most universities and colleges, and lack of competitive peer-reviewed research funding across disciplines, have shown a poor representation of Indian in global rankings. Because of which India still does not have a single university in the top 100 of any global reputed world university rankings.
