About the Book
The modern system of Indianised education claims to provide an indigenous method of teaching for India that is devoid of western influences and allows students to take pride in religio-cultural tradition of India. Since the system has only recently come to the fore, my analysis shall be based upon the statements made by its votaries and actions of people rooting for an Indianised system. The present book constitutes the life and work of seven educationists— Rabindra Nath Tagore, Madan Mohan Malaviya, Mohandas Karamchan Gandhi, Sri Aurobido, J. Krishnamurthi, Malcolm Adiseshiah and J.P. Naik who devoted their life for Indianisation Indian education system. Hope this book will help in glorifying Indian education system.
