Sam Pitroda stresses need for changing education system

Sam Pitroda

Sam Pitroda, former advisor to the Prime Minister, visited Sahyadri College of Engineering and Management and interacted with students and staff.

Speaking on the occasion, he said that the current education system needs to be changed. It is the next big challenge for the country.

“The world we live in is very obsolete. Information is being democratised. Everything is available, yet we don’t know how to use it. To learn something, you just need motivation, time and content. If you have enough motivation and time, you can get surplus amount of content on the internet and you can learn whatever you want,” he said.

Pitroda called upon the students to face the unknown, redefine self and be creative.

Bhandary Foundation Chairman Manjunath Bhandary said Sam Pitroda’s journey of life is an inspiration. He also said that during the setting-up process of Sahyadri College of Engineering and Management, he had approached Sam Pitroda for advice and he was very clear that an institution should be 1 out of 100 and not 99 out of 100.
