This interview focuses on the education systems in India and an evaluation of these by Krishna Kumar. Beginning with a discussion on the reasons why the Congress-led governments or the BJP were unable to improve the standards of education in the country, Krishna Kumar and Ramin Jahanbegloo look at education as a means of addressing social disparities. In the course of the interview, Kumar stresses on important lessons for the future, which involve the Gandhian and Tagorian theories of education.
