The papers collected in this book were presented during the recent years at conferences, seminars and workshops held in different parts of the country. Educational research involved in preparing these papers was greatly inspired and supported by the research teams of the Mother's Institute of Research.
Some of the important ideas, which would be found here unavoidably repeated, relate to the crisis through which humanity is passing today. It is this crisis which leads us to knock the portals of education which may lead us to some of the elements of a lasting solution.
It is hoped that at this important juncture when educational thought in India is being churned once again, these papers might be found relevant and helpful.
