Indian education has evolved over thousands of years. Our past has a glorious tradition leading to profound contributions across knowledge domains. Yet, over the last hundred years or so there has been a slight loss of the sheen of our education system, especially in the Liberal Arts, Social Sciences, and Sciences stream. As a result of this, enrollments in these very critical areas of knowledge are declining hence depriving the individual graduates of these streams of any job opportunity, and the society of the possibility of benefits from their contribution. The inputs from Liberal Arts and Social Sciences add a soul to the human machine. The theme of the conclave is to focus on discussing how we can make our Liberal Arts, Social Science, and Science education more practice-oriented so that its graduates not only get a job after these studies but also make a meaningful contribution to society as a whole, thus maintaining the relevance of these studies, said Shiv S Sharma, Secretary General, Federation for World Academics (FWA). Federation for World Academics (FWA) is a platform where higher education academic challenges are discussed amongst world academics as well as with industry leaders. It also extends the effort to awaken the government and bureaucrats to current and possible feedback in higher education. “This event and conference is a platform for academia, industry and students because here will discuss about education pattern, changers, study options, clarify the doubts on admission requirements, Provide information on scholarships, application process, accommodation, and much more,” he added.
