India should pitch for leadership in education, given the traditional strengths we have. At the moment, we are not in the leadership place. There is a great potential to showcase our crafts and other skills; sadly these are vanishing elsewhere but fortunately India still has these. And this is relevant in the fashion space, too. We need people who believe in our own strengths and contemporarise the same for today's world.
