Search for affordable and quality education is a challenge for students all around the world. Better education is considered as a channel to provide future career opportunities. Internet and associated digital technologies focused towards education are capable of transforming the learning landscape. Initiatives like - online education from traditional universities; diverse learning content providers like Khan Academy,, etc; MOOC platforms like Udacity, edX, Coursera etc - and not to forget the large number of self-learning content freely available through independent websites, all adds up to the online learning spectrum. Certification and degree recognition are some of the issues and challenges related to this form of education. According to University of Pennsylvania survey most of the MOOCs availing students are those that are already educated and take them up for enhancing specific knowledge and skills for career advancement, in poor countries accessed by mainly those who are wealthy and have computer and internet connection and 90% of those who register drop out without completing the course. Blended learning is also being utilized where online learning mechanism is adopted alongwith traditional education delivery.

As India's economy continues to grow and expand, the need for energy security becomes a critical component of the overall development policy. Currently most of the fuel is imported from Middle-East and Africa where political instability in some countries is a growing concern. Although India has vast coal reserves and presently uses it as main energy source, but there are issues at the policy level to pursue sufficient mining. Moreover there are environmental concerns related to overuse of coal. India intends to diversify its energy supply by focusing on wind, solar and nuclear sources. But it also has to encourage and expand exploration and production of oil and gas within the country. In last 15 years the investment in exploration has only been US$ 16 billion which is less than half of what Brazil has spent and much less than what India's own companies have invested in foreign exploration activities.
