Indian Education System and Its Legacy

The Indian education system has evolved from its ancient Vedic roots, where knowledge was imparted orally, emphasizing spiritual and ethical values. During the colonial era, British policies reshaped traditional frameworks, suppressing indigenous knowledge. Post-independence, India struggled with these legacies but aimed to realign its education system. Today, initiatives like the New Education Policy integrate modern innovations with India's diverse cultural heritage, promoting inclusivity and holistic education.
