Here comes the book 'The Education President' on President Pranab Mukherjee
A book release function is being organised at Rashtrapati Bhavanon June 8, at which the President of India, Pranab Mukherjee receives the first copy of a book "The Education President".

According to an official release, the President is going to receive the book from Vice President, Mohammad Hamid Ansari, who is formally who is going to release it.

The book "The Education President" published by the International Institute for Higher Education Research & Capacity Building, OP Jindal Global University highlights President Mukherjee's contributions to the field of higher education as a visitor to 116 institutions of higher learning in India, stated the release.

Pranab Kumar Mukherjee (Born: December 11) is the 13th and current President of India, in office since July 2012. In a political career spanning six decades, Mukherjee was a senior leader of the Indian National Congress before he got elected as president of the country.

It is true that President Mukherjee has talked profusely on education while being in the office and calling him "The Education President" is most appropriate.

Here are his two recent quotes on higher education from his address at the university in Tezpur:

  • To be a top higher educational institution requires one to adhere to a few basic pre-conditions. To my mind, the most critical amongst them are ensuring the quality of education and research, enhancing faculty standards and establishing collaborations and linkages with international as well as domestic organisations.

  • The emphasis on academic excellence, as well as inculcating core civilizational values of patriotism, compassion, honesty, tolerance, performance of duty and respect for women have to be maintained all through.
