    The Indian educational system has grown manifold in the last decade and is expected to

    grow even more in view of the changing needs of the society. Indian society is characterized

    by social, ecological, ideological, and economic disparity. This demands for educational

    policy and practices that cater to the needs and aspirations of children from diverse

    backgrounds. To facilitate such educational practices, there has been a propagation of

    teacher education programs across the country.

    However, there remains a lack of adequate material that looks at the theories and

    their implications keeping in mind the cultural context. With this in mind, the idea to bring

    out the Indian edition of Educational Psychology, 13e by Anita Woolfolk was materialized. "
