Agastya jointly with Institute of Engineers (Karnataka State Centre), Bangalore conducted a Q & A Session lead by Dr. T Ramasami, Secretary, Department of Science & Technology, Government of India on March 9, 2010.
Dr. T Ramasami holds a Master’s degree in Leather Technology from the University of Madras, India and PhD in Chemistry from the University of Leeds, UK. Dr.Ramasami draws his inspiration from the John Maxwell quote, “A great leader’s courage to fulfill his vision comes from passion not position.”
During this session Dr. T Ramasami gave wonderful insights into how education has really evolved from its inception thousands of years ago to date. He talked about the difference between deductive and inductive logic, and how the combination of the two could help create new ways of thinking and learning. It was indeed a very interactive Q&A session which had Agastya staff, private and public school students, teachers and NGOs participating. In the form of a travelogue, his lucid presentation kept the audience glued to their seats.
