The history of Indian education has its roots in the ancient ages where they followed the Gurukul system – a system where the students resided in the house of their teacher until the teacher felt that he had imparted all that he could. The subjects taught varied from Sanskrit to Scriptures to Mathematics to Metaphysics and the knowledge attained would be passed on to the future generations. However, this system was changed during the Colonial era when the British set up schools that followed a curriculum confined to subjects such as Mathematics, Science etc. While the ancient system included more interaction with the nature, the modern system was more classrooms oriented.
