Sushant’s Dream

“I dream to create an environment where kids of India— and elsewhere, get ‘free’, improved and relevant education and many ways to acquire any skill of choice for free. To create a structure like this, and now, could be highly possible with the right intentions and some working knowledge of chaos and game theories, non-zero sum structures that bio-mimic. Any suggestion/ feedback/idea for the Cause, if you have, please do share. I would be highly obliged. It’s about time that we acknowledge ‘convergence’ that’s happening all around the globe and make the youth more competent and happy ‘now’. Because as they say, the more we learn, the lesser time it takes for us to learn even more. Let’s begin. It’s about ‘time.”

This was the vision that Sushant Singh had for his nation and its people. For more such informative news and updates stay connected to Leverage Edu. Follow us on Facebook, Quora, LinkedIn, and Instagram.
