Education is a vast discipline. In fact, it begins from the earliest days of infancy and continues, in one way or the other, till one breaths one's last. Broadly speaking, it can be categorised into two types: (a) Formal; and (b) Informal. Both are vital and run parallel to each other in social life. Present multi-volume work encapsulates all the essential and up-to-date information on the trends - existing, past and likely to comp up - of education in India. Singular in its traits, it deserves to be preserved in the shelf of every library of whatsoever nature and in personal collections of all scholars and educationists, as well.
