Though this is not sufficient; Bihar needs about 150 universities considering the size its population of nearly 10 crore. At Present, we have only twelve traditional universities, one I.I.T. and one law university. We need to expand the teaching and baring facilities at a fast speed to reach the target of developing another nearly 140 universities by 2015 to become a knowledge based society. Only govt. cannot achieve this enormous target.
This requires a public private partnership to achieve such a challenging task and the govt. to accept flexible and supportive approach.
At the present junction of fast changing scenario, BBrains Development Society has a special responsibility of achieving knowledge based society for the state for Bihar. Looking at this, the global scientific council of BBrains Development Society is forming draft for the establishment of the " Pataliputra University of Science and Technology in Bihar. I do hope other majaor players, industrialist, educationist, govt and non govt. agencies would also come forward for investing in Bihar in the field of education and research.
May glorious past of Bihar return back in my life journey !
