Education has emerged as a very active and investment intensive area in India.  Some statistics on the education scene are presented.  Provides an illustrative list of information transforming projects as well as people. Finds that the neo-rich in India are more convinced about the need of technology to address socio-economic problems and are aware of the value of information in tackling social issues. Discusses some of the possible challenges and probable solutions that come in the way of information being used as an enabler for improving the social status of citizens.
