The essence of the book
Education is the key to creating a better future for individuals, communities, societies, and the world. But what does education really mean, and how can we build a better future beyond the cities and the elite schools? Anurag Behar’s collection of essays takes us on a journey to remote villages in India where we can see the state of education and, by extension, the state of the nation. Despite the challenges of poor infrastructure and the struggle for the right to education, Behar shows us how people and communities are making a positive impact on individuals and the nation as a whole. This book highlights the true essence of education, which lies in the heart, and the importance of empowering people to create a better future.
