India is focused on becoming a digitally enabled nation in terms of infrastructure, business and literacy, but for that we need the right kind of workforce. The challenge begins right from school age, when children often do not receive guidance to approach their education in the right way and are forced to follow ineffective methods of learning, such as rote memorization.
