With its large number of youth, India has got a natural advantage over other countries to excel in higher education and become a great nation. If it happens, we can solve problems such as like poverty, illiteracy, unemployment, corruption and social conflict. Unfortunately, investment in higher education is paltry and it is out of reach for the ordinary people. The so-called highly educated take up foreign assignments and the nation does not benefit from their skills.V. Jayakrishnan,
