Global Education Reforms- The need of the Hour
Global Ideas to Global Thinker!
Honorable Sri Narendra Modiji? Why don’t your kind selves initiate to form Global Education Summit like BRICS bank / WTO?
"Everything begins with an idea." - Earl Nightengale
Salutations to your aggressive, progressive steps towards reforms in each and every sector. Your “Development Mantra” is speaking practically which is really applaudable. I am wondering how did you hidden all this treasure of knowledge all these days? God is given right platform to serve the globe. So action is your’s; Plan and support is our’s.
I personally and on behalf of our journal Congratulate you for your dreams, ideologies and practical steps towards development. We, the board of intellects are with you for reforms and chanting, practicing development mantra instead of commenting on each other. We are ready to take this responsibility towards reforms.
Rethinking on fully Governmentization, Open Universities, Autonomous and Deemed Universities. Dilution of Education, Decreasing values of Education, Life leading Education, Entrepreneurial based education, Agriculture based education, eradicating Terrorism, Poverty, Granting Aids, Amendments, Avoiding religious based Education. Standardized syllabus / norms from Nursery to MBBS/B.E./any other Degrees required; Reverse brain storming is utmost required. Education should not become the platform to make the business by Politicians and Business men.
There is a lot to share with you, but the doubt is whether is it reaching to you is an important question? So I don’t want to elaborate / share much in this letter.
”Aano bhadraa krathavo yanthu vishwathaha”-"Let the noble thoughts come to all from all directions".
There is no scarcity of think tanks globally, Let us call them, sit together to identify the problems to find the solutions.
Reforms through Research and Discussion is required.
Like the patriotism on their home countries, they have to develop patriotism for the world as a single family like “Vasudaiva Kutumbakam”
The ministries of the world should come into one common platform, how should go about the global challenges.
Keeping in the mind of the rich culture, customs, norms, values & beliefs of their home countries, successful countries in the education, Adaptation of Technology, Teaching methodologies, Ownership of Educational Institutions, Resource availability of the country, Political interference of the country, Terrorism & education, Human values etc.,
The Ministries, Government at least for the education system, they have to come out from their positions, egos, wealth, corruption etc., because today or tomorrow in these institutions only their children are going to study which will lead to “dying in their own dug pit”.
If aggressive meetings happen by dedicating, there is no need of waiting for long durations.
Finally I conclude that there is a need of the common ministry platforms worldwide for sharing global thoughts. I request your kind self to look into this matter seriously.
Country wise meetings, panel discussions with Government, UGC, Vice Chancellors, Industrialists, Academicians, Students, Public, and Education Ministers should be done Please go through the website acmeintellects.org for my thoughts.
Kindly forgive me if anything wrong in my presentation to the highest admirable authorities.
With Warm Regards,

“Education is not the amount of information that we put into your brain and runs riot there, undigested, all your life. We must have life building, man making, character making assimilation of ideas. If you have assimilated five ideas and made them your life and character, you have more education than any man who has got by heart a whole library”
- Swami Vivekananda
“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.”

“Children must be taught how to think, not what to think.”
― Margaret Mead
“Educating the mind without educating the heart is no education at all.”
"Seven Deadly Sins
Wealth without work
Pleasure without conscience

US President Obama has launched one of the world’s most ambitious education reform agendas. Under the heading “Race to the Top”,.
If Education is to receive the moral and financial support of citizens, political forces must be mobilized in its behalf.... Education is one of the most thoroughly political enterprises in American life. More public money is spent for education than for any other single function of state and local government.... It is evident that effective political leadership is the keystone to the arch of educational finance.
