Addressing the students, Mr. Premji said, "These 12 years have taught us that transforming education is very complex. And given the diversity of our country, compounded by issues of socio-economic deprivation and the on-the-ground realities, it is inevitably going to be a slow and arduous process. It is clear that the governments across the country need to do a lot more."

"They need to invest more in school education, in teacher education and other school related issues, including higher education. Equally, other stakeholders need to do more. The task is indeed huge, and it is extremely urgent", he added.
