This book focuses on how teachers of design have an influential role to play in students’ lives. It has been divided into three major sections—‘Retrospection’, ‘Introspection’, and ‘Perception’ thus, reiterating the idea that future of design education in India can be a flourishing one only if it embraces the traditional and the modern, the past and the present. A mélange of thoughts, experiences, and anecdotes shared by alumni, faculty both former and present, and artists—this book touches upon poignant issues which can influence the spread of design education across design schools/institutions in India, along with training an unwavering focus on the most important people involved in the same—the teachers. The conclusion to the book is an excursus on design education in India and traces the genesis of design education in India and the establishment of NID. It then moves on to analyse who could be the prospective recipients of design education, the project-based method for imparting design education and the pointed relevance of this method, an insightful analysis of what are the qualities an aspiring teacher of design must have, and finally, the overall importance of institution building.
