Dr. K. M. Vasudevan Pillai, Author: EduNation

Dr. K. M. Vasudevan Pillai is many things to many people, but at his best he is a pioneer, an entrepreneur and a social reformer who believes that education is the only means to large-scale transformation, the only language of change. A belief that saw him venture into areas of little or no development and start schools and colleges against all odds.

REVIEWS

"Dr. Pillai takes us on a fascinating journey that cuts through the grime and grit of grassroots India, the corridors of power and corruption, labyrinthine bureaucracy and endless challenges faced by an ordinary citizen with an extraordinary intent."

C Pal, The Times of India

"Dr. Pillai recognises the need for new kinds of private educational models and methods, that, like the changing world around them, challenge the status quo that is maintained by both local traditions and large-scale government inertia."

Roy E Allen, Dean, School of Economics and Business Administration, Saint Mary’s College of California
