The much awaited ‘White Swan Awards-for Excellence in Education’; were held at ‘AsiaOne Pride of the Nation: India’s Greatest Brands and Leaders Summit, 2015-16’; the summit was held at the Taj Lands End Mumbai on 3rd September, 2016 with great charm and ardour. These awards are a tribute to the educationists, teachers and gurus who have made a difference in the field of education in India. The white swan or hamsa, is a symbol of knowledge and self-realization. It is also an emblem of wisdom, as its proverbial ability of separating milk from water testifies. Certainly, the white swan is inseparable from the presence of knowledge. And so, with the White Swan, we pay tribute to the legends in education.

These awards were exclusively organised to identify and honour the exceptional brands and leaders in education from all over India who have performed above and beyond others within the field. At the event Leaders, Brands and Educationists from various spheres were recognised. Well known educationists from all over India participated in the Summit.
