  • Each contributor to this volume holds extensive experience in education and higher education. Their pa pers are infused with personal reflections and creative insights, offering a nuanced perspective. While the book may not present a comprehensive overview of Christian education in the country, it serves as an educational resource, providing readers with a broad understanding of the overarching goals and directions of Christian institutions in India. The essays delve into the educational vision and mission of the Church in India, shedding light on the factors contributing to its varied experiences amid the evolving circumstances of the country. In a stark departure from caste feudalism and hierarchy, Christian educational institutions introduced a fresh perspective characterized by rationality and a commitment to public morality. The origins of these endeavors were modest, often fueled by motivations beyond what is commonly described to colonial or religious influences. Although the ideologies and belief systems of the time did shape thought patterns, their acceptance was neither universal nor uncritically assimilated. Instead, the outcomes can be seen as the result of the audacious initiatives undertaken by individual men and women. The collective submissions of the contributors to this volume converge on a shared understanding of the evolution of Indian secularism and democracy. Originating from faith-based institutions, their development was shaped by government regulations, market forces, and a deference to parental and client expectations, all steered by innovative individuals. Within these institutions, both men and women played roles in adopting unconventional approaches to handling religious differences. This led to the establishment of an educational and institutional practice, now recognized as Indian Secular Democracy. The ongoing struggle for the preservation of this legacy weighs heavily on all those who have benefited from and championed it, akin to the audacious founding figures of modern India.
