The mismatch between societal and education gradients is one of the key factors that creates discontent among the students. Society is very dynamic, while in comparison, the educational system is relatively static. This leads to a disconnect in the education system and the real world. The current higher education methodology in India is asymmetric. The information misalignment results in continually failing of educators to equip young people with the required skills and know-how to succeed in the real world.
As a downfall, these students lack in giving shape to their own lives, to the society and the country at large. For years now, the Indian education system is calling out for comprehensive reforms. The time has come for us to explore and materialize towards catering the future needs. The need of the hour is to empower young minds that are well-equipped to deal with the present needs and confront unexpected challenges of the future.

It will further enhance their capabilities to apply learnt knowledge and expertise in the real-world settings.
