Indian representation in top global universities miniscule: Amartya Sen
New Delhi, Oct 8 (ANI): Indian economist and Nobel laureate Amartya Sen has said that though India has established reputation in academia, yet its representation in the global group of top 200 universities is miniscule.
Addressing a gathering at an event here, Sen said: "Even though our country has established some reputation in academia, the fact is that there is not a single university in that group (200 top universities of the world).
"There are 10 from China and two from Taiwan. Asia is not unrepresented but not represented well, I mean it's almost more than half of the world and its proportion at the top 200 universities is fairly miniscule and for India it is zero," asserted Sen.
He further said that something was missing which failed to translate individual talent to administrative ability.
Emphasising that most good researchers were in institutes and hence unable to benefit the young students, he said: "There is a need to strike a balance between research and teaching." (ANI)
