Excerpt from Education and Citizenship in India

This study of our Indian educational policy in its relations to Indian social and religious conditions, and of its effects in the sphere of political activities, owes its appearance in its present shape to the wording of the thesis propounded for the Maitland Prize (Cambridge, 1909). The adjudicators asked for dissertations on 'the teaching of experience in India on the question how far secular education can foster a sense of duty.' The question thus propounded can hardly be said to have received an answer in this volume: but the fact that it was asked in the above form will account to some extent for the attention devoted to certain controversial topics which might otherwise have been treated more cursorily.

For the space of sixteen months I was myself a cog in a wheel of the Indian educational machine - a rather mutinous cog in a very blundering machine - and cannot therefore be charged with handling matters of which I have no first-hand knowledge, or in which I have felt no more than a remote academic interest.
