Knowledge has always been considered more valuable than power, fame or money in India. Educational institutions are considered as the place to acquire knowledge in the Indian tradition, i.e. the temple of learning. The foundations of a sound education system were built in ancient times, with the setting up of great universities like Nalanda and Takshashila. Our many achievements in the field of education are notable. It is our endeavor that no child or youth of the country should be deprived of the facilities of education. When our land was pushed into backwardness after the long colonial rule, it was education that emerged as a path to empowerment: President Kovind
