President Mukherjee urged all to think about the future of Indian universities as a continuation of the country's rich history and heritage of education.

"We would do well to take from reforms by great philosophers and visionaries, such as Rabindranath Tagore, who sought to revive the ancient Buddhist tradition of higher learning and research in a 'common pursuit of truth' for all mankind. As our 'Universities of the Future' gear up for global competition to find their place on the tables of institutional rankings, let us not forget the difference between 'world-class' and 'world-minded'," he said.
