India has just celebrated sixty-four years of independence. But is our country truly free? Is the maturity of a nation measured by the number of years in existence or by the development in its society? And whose development are we talking about? Ten leading luminaries from the field of politics, literature, media, art and culture, management, defense, and public administration raise these questions and try to answer them through their own specialized domains. Organized around two broad themes - "inclusion of the excluded" and "education for the marginalized" Bridging the Gap offer an exposition to the range of inequalities and challenges in different fields of social engagement, and open up possible ways of addressing these concerns. The contributors discuss inclusiveness and marginalization in the contemporary social contexts, their diverse dimensions, and interlinkages with various sources of social inequalities including caste-, class-, and gender-related factors.

India has just celebrated sixty-four years of independence. But is our country truly free? Is the maturity of a nation measured by the number of years in existence or by the development in its society? And whose development are we talking about? Ten leading luminaries from the field of politics, literature, media, art and culture, management, defense, and public administration raise these questions and try to answer them through their own specialized domains. Organized around two broad themes—“inclusion of the excluded” and “education for the marginalized” Bridging the Gap offer an exposition to the range of inequalities and challenges in different fields of social engagement, and open up possible ways of addressing these concerns. The contributors discuss inclusiveness and marginalization in the contemporary social contexts, their diverse dimensions, and interlinkages with various sources of social inequalities including caste-, class-, and gender-related factors.

Tobias Aberle examines how an entrepreneurship training helps disadvantaged youths in rural parts of Bihar, India, to cope with structural conditions that enable or constrain them. The present research reveals that young entrepreneurs can be divided into two groups: those who developed personal initiative and thus coped with limiting structural conditions very proactively, and those who solely behaved in a reactive way. For many entrepreneurs, the self-employed activity was only a Plan B, as in reality they sought for high-prestige career jobs. IFor entrepreneurship training to become a tool of empowerment, the range of training must be significantly adjusted in accordance with young trainees’ social and educational backgrounds. In addition, a functioning ecosystem for entrepreneurship education must be in place, which ensures support for individual entrepreneurs through mentorship and networks.

“Seldom make fun about the future of any person; irrespective of present condition. Never underestimate the power of time; it turns even a worthless coal into a priceless diamond. ” “Speak the truth in such a way that it should be fair. Never speak that assumed truth, unfairly. Never speak untruth, even though it might be pleasant. This is the path of perennial Dharma.” “One must never place excessive faith on one’s Dhana (Wealth), Jana (People) and Yauvana (Youthfulness) for these three are the most transient in our lives – there today, gone tomorrow.” “Pursuing happiness is but the nature of every creature. But there is no happiness without Dharma. Therefore, pursue Dharma.” "Wealth cannot give happiness by itself. One has to understand that it is always a means, never an end. By recognizing wealth as an end, it becomes a source of misery. Wealth is temporary and unsteady. It moves from one to another. Greed drives people without knowledge of wealth to destruction. Therefore, knowledge and wisdom are crucial in earning, retaining and dissipating wealth, righteously." Kautilya a.k.a. Chanakya

The twenty-first century has witnessed the rise of India as a major media producer and consumer market increasingly engaged with the global economy. Aided by rising incomes, technological remediation, regulatory strategies, and a shifting political terrain, the business of media has been given official recognition as a substantive component of India’s economy and as a prominent feature of its economic thinking. In light of these developments, these two pioneering volumes investigate the dynamics of an increasingly integrated media economy encompassing television, film, music, sport, and telecoms. Volume 1: Industrial Dynamics and Cultural Adaptation illustrates the distinctive industrial dynamics of India’s media economy, tracking the deeply embedded cultural, political, and economic forces that determine its everyday operation. The selection of essays serves to demonstrate the unique patterns of development and the complex field of exchanges that have constituted India’s media economy. As a whole, this volume posits a comprehensive approach to understanding the nature of media resources, the negotiation of industrial norms and the cultural context of a media economy firmly situated in the realities of India’s distinct regions, cultures, and human networks. Volume 2: Market Dynamics and Social Transactions provides a comprehensive analysis of the interlocking markets that constitute the media economy, focusing upon its particular commodity forms, labour conditions, and spaces of consumption. Taking account of a rich set of case studies, this volume argues for the necessary consideration of multiple and interdependent markets in explicating our everyday encounters with media. By foregrounding the social transactions that encapsulate market exchanges, it begins to illustrate some of the novel aspirations, meanings, and relationships arising with India’s media economy.

This book is a collection of short essays, accessible through open access, which takes the interested reader on a tour across the global higher education landscape. It addresses pertinent themes and challenges in higher education. To mark the 70th anniversary of the International Association of Universities (IAU) and its role in higher education since 1950, experts from around the world share their insights into higher education’s recent past, present and future. The book is divided into six parts: Part I – “70 years of Higher Education Cooperation and Advocacy” looks back at key events in IAU’s history, its mission and significant activities over time, and remarks on the current global context informing its quest to promote academic partnerships and solidarity on a global scale. Part II – “Facilitating International Cooperation” provides for different perspectives on the transformation of the internationalisation of higher education and the contribution of higher education to international cooperation. Part III – “Coding the Values” debates the values upon which higher education was, is and will have to be built to provide for a democratic and inclusive society. Part IV – “The Changing Landscape” analyses various aspects of the transformation of higher education in an evolving context across the globe. Part V – “The Promise of Education” reflects on the role of higher education, its ideals and shortfalls and what it must do to stay true to its promise to help shape our societies. Part VI – “Opening up – The Future of Higher Education” focuses on future scenarios of higher education and call on the reader to envision a different kind of higher education and reimagine the contribution of higher education to society, as well as future roles for the IAU. The book will be of interest to higher education policy makers and academics. It is also of interest to the general public, as it provides a comprehensive overview of the challenges higher education institutions currently face and suggests scenarios of what the future of education might look like.
