Education is important, interesting but a complex process. It is complex because it is social in nature. Geographical, cultural and other diversities in a society are a major source of complexity. A second source of complexity results from the wide field of content areas and pedagogies which keep changing. Yet another area that adds to this complex process is the variety of stakeholders, for example the diversity we come across with respect to students and teachers with the kind of changes happening there in multiple dimensions.

Buniyadee Shiksha (Nai Talim), the education system proposed by Mahatma Gandhi, is generally believed to be education system based on productive work. But it should be clear to all of us that though productive work is its basis, learning through that work is its’ uniqueness. By now a lot has been discussed about Nai Talim. One needs to go through the writings of Gandhiji in ‘Harijan’ or ‘Young India’ to get a clear picture of his ideas of education.
