Ltd. 2014Description: ix, 80 p.ISBN: 9788125054726.Subject(s): India - Officials and employees - Biography | Civil service - India - GujaratDDC classification: 354.54092 Summary: A success story of national pride and achievement, Silver Lining is told most engagingly by a civil servant whose experiences in Gujarat deserve to be widely known. Jayanti Ravi is not only an observer but an active participant in this theater of higher education where motives and methods meet several lives to enrich them amid numerous challenges and privations. True learning, argues Ravi, begins when we learn to read the world rather than the word, instances of which she cites and celebrates in these pages. Above all, non-formal education has had very few committed votaries, a regrettable shortcoming Ravi’s pages will certainly redress/ overcome. This book would inspire serious aspirants to the Indian Administrative Service and the general reader. The Foreword to this book is by Sam Pitroda, Chairman, National Innovation Council.
