SummaryRather than focusing on the creation of new IITs, the HRD minister must focus on providing good primary, secondary and even college education to the hitherto deprived rural masses on war footing

HRD minister is very keen on doing something for higher education, she would do well to put an end to the notoriously scary ragging in IITs; remove the corrupt regulators in the education sector; free private education sector from counter-productive regulations; reduce caste-based reservations of seats and so on. Meanwhile, if industries adopt all villages in India, education will spread faster. Management institutes can organise such Shramdaan Shibirs, inculcate philanthropy and cater to the need of the hour by joining hands with the government if HRD ministry takes up such laudable initiatives towards nation-building at the bottom of the pyramid.
