Dr. Giri believes India is a vastly populated country and a developing nation. Hence, education is one of the major components that will be helpful in changing India from a developing nation to a developed country. Further, he feels if we take a careful look at the demographics of India, we can see that states and cities having the highest literacy rates have better infrastructure and advanced technology than others.Hence, Dr. Giri thinks we need to work on various reforms and educational projects in India to create a progressive and developed country.
He also feels that the importance of education is not just limited to creating a progressive country. There are many other reasons that make education important in India, such as:
Education is the right of every citizen of India, irrespective of their gender, caste, creed, or social status.
It promotes an independent society comprising civilized and well-mannered individuals.
Education helps in uplifting economically underprivileged groups and leads to the creation of various employment opportunities.
Good education facilitates a peaceful exchange of ideas and knowledge.
As much as it ensures a bright and prosperous future for educated individuals, it also helps in alleviating crime and terrorism.
Dr. Giri is a man with a concrete vision for tomorrow. In order to make his dream of education for all come true, he started his journey by entering the field of Computer Education and Business Management towards the end of the 20th century. Later, he entered the field of Teacher’s Training (B.Ed.), to address the insufficiency of qualified teachers for the improvement of primary education. Subsequently, he expanded his domain by opening up new institutions, Universities, Medical College & World Schools that cater to the demands of the community.
