Transform education system: Kalam
President A.P.J. Abdul Kalam favours transforming the education system from "a preaching to a coaching mode" to make it relevant to the needs of the fast-paced, technologically-driven 21st Century.
Pointing out that the country could be a world leader in nanotechnology, he stresses on the significance of innovation.
Admitting that information technology had earned India global recognition, he says: "Its fruits are limited to few hundred thousand jobs and a portion of export earnings. It must now go beyond the present scenario of providing service to innovation."
