‘A Man Making Approach to Education’ written by Dr. Velchala Kondala Rao is an anthology of high powered thoughts carved into poetry with an equally strong Epilogue - all ventilating the emotional exuberance of Dr. Kondala Rao on the objectives of education, realities in execution and suggestions for reforming education to be ‘man making and character building’. In it every word is a quote and every thought is a guide. As such random reference to one or two expressions does not do justice to the great work. The nation needs it as beacon to ponder over the realities in the field of education in India and to save the succeeding generations from further onslaught of Western negative influences, unhealthy competitive trends and neglect of value orientation in education.
The book ‘A Man Making Approach to Education’ assumes immense significance and calls for not only enlightened study but also effective measures to rectify the deficiency in the approach towards education, and restore the glory of value based character building education in the larger interest of the youth and the nation.
