This Giving Season make a generous gift to Nalanda 2.0 and help launch a first-of-its-kind multidisciplinary research university in India. This will empower people and society for generations to come.

In the knowledge economy, nations with great universities will thrive. The great universities of the world - be it Stanford, UC Berkeley or MIT of today, or Nalanda of ancient India - are multidisciplinary in nature; serve as engines for research, education, and innovation; drive economic growth; solve the problems of society and humanity; and make lives better for people. India needs many such universities. Even after over 70 years of independence India does not have even one world-class multidisciplinary university.
