Off to Glowing India!


Uma_gupta06As many of you know the Indian educational market is booming and in fact, bursting at the seams. Institutions from all over the globe world have set up shop in India, from Ivy league institutions down to community colleges. Indians have an insatiable need for higher education and learning and so this market is only expected to boom.

I am leaving for India on a consulting assignment to help institutions establish accreditation processes and to build alliances with universities around the world. This is a dream come true for me. It gives me an opportunity to give back to my country of origin, while visiting family and friends. I will also be conducting workshops and seminars in India whilst eating sumptuous food, shopping, visiting places of architectural interest, watching late night movies, and hanging out with friends. What a deal, eh?

In particular, I am excited about my upcoming visit to the Golden Temple in Amristar. the sacred home of Sikhs. Asia Grace by Kevin Kelly is a fabulous collection of photographs of the complex and dichotomous nation that is India and its people. There is so much to see and do in India and I have barely scratched the surface.
