In this paper, Jagadeeshwar Rao presents how educational communication transformed from ancient time to modern days in India. In ancient days educational communication was one to one between the monks and the disciples and was mostly oral, but later transformed into written as well. Monks in this sense can be taken as sages of ancient India. In the colonial period, the colonial rulers neglected the local languages and promoted English for creating persons suitable for their administrative services and defence. Post independent India has evolved a well structured educational system balancing between regional languages and English.
