Difference between Australian and Indian education system

The author of this blog was invited to address Indian students commencing higher education at Griffith University, Queensland, Australia. The speech was part of a pre-departure session hosted by Griffith University at Courtyard by Marriott, Ahmedabad, Gujarat on 30/Jan/2019.
The speech covered wide range of subjects but one topic that needs to be briefly summarised here is the difference between Indian and Australian (western) education system. Indian education system clearly sets out the knowledge that students need to learn and assesses whether student has acquired that knowledge or not. Western education system at times sets student on discovery of knowledge through research in addition to traditional education system where student acquires knowledge from textbooks and classrooms.
The author also wants to thank Griffith University for felicitating the beautiful memento pictured below.
