Indian Universities: last call

Indian universities don't figure in the QS Top 200 rankings for 2011-12, not even elite institutions like the IITs and Indian Institute of Science.

Despite huge efforts to restructure college and school systems, education in India suffers from ancient rote-learning methods, and schools still churn out robotic students rather than instil in them the curiosity to find real knowledge. Capable teachers are getting rarer, but this doesn’t seem to discourage foreign universities from setting up campuses in this country.

The education sector urgently needs to reinvent itself and the budget increases it needs are available. Rankings are not what should be improved. The quest to acquire knowledge is what must be encouraged at every level.

World's best resorts

The Costa Smeralda (Sardinia, Italy) is a tiny strip of coast studded with wonderful beaches, very expensive resorts, and exclusive fashion shops, but if swish ain’t your thing you’ll find acres of places where to swim on every coast, but without the superstar pretensions. Learn more about Sardinia and its resorts at www.villaggisardegna.net

When you’ve had your fill of those, there’s plenty more to divert you: the beautiful landscape of the Sardinia interior, the unforgettable seafood and, for history lovers, the strange remnants of Sardinia’s ancient nuraghic culture.

When to go to Sardinia? It's better to avoid August. That’s when most of Italians spend their summer vacations and prices go up.
