Abstract

From the beginning of time, the meaning of education has been dynamic. It has changed from being defined as one's dharma in ancient times to being understood as ‘scientific thinking’ today. Mirrored in the Preamble to the Indian Constitution is the definition of an educated Indian: a person with scientific temperament and liberal outlook, who is capable of individual thinking. She will bring an era of new knowledge on the foundation of her observations, experimentation and reflection by being peaceful and happy (Liav Orgad, 2010, Heignotes, 2016). But is this dream, which the nation saw in 1947, being fulfilled 73 years after its independence?
