The description of Waymade
With increased mobility of people and resources, English has become an essential medium of communication not only in the international arena but also within India. English, today, is a medium of upward social mobility. Further, Indians already have a legacy of the language of over 200 years. This gives India an edge over many other countries in the world. In this era of immaterial economy, when service sector reigns supreme, Indian academicians, service sector and all the knowledge-workers can make most of their knowledge of English and help India scale economic and cultural heights.
With over 1,000 English medium schools in the State of Gujarat itself , and many more in the offing, there is an increased and increasing demand for teachers who can teach the various subjects at school in English.
This is both a challenge and an opportunity for the young generation of India. It is simultaneously a calling to reconstruct the society and an opportunity for a bright career.
The Founders and Visionaries of this Seat of Learning called Vallabh Vidyanagar firmly believed education to be an effective means of societal reconstruction. Hence all the efforts of the leaders, past as well as present, reflect this perspective.
