Top Universities of the World

This is not new but nevertheless no less cringe-worthy for an Indian.

Here are the Top 500 University rankings for 2013.

You have to search hard ... REALLY HARD ... to find an Indian institution on the list. IIT Bombay and IIT Roorkee are there towards the end. Look for institutions from Asia and use Ctrl+F and type 'India' and you will be able to locate. Indian institutions are languishing somewhere outside of the top 200 institutions.

Is not this truly cringe-worthy? Look at the nations featured in the Top 100.

All sorts of nations feature in the Top 200 list: Belgium, Taiwan, Singapore, Sweden, Israel, Netherlands, Austria, Australia, Ireland, Korea and so on. Of course, Britain, France, Germany, and Japan feature there by default.

The Guardian does some nice stuff with the rankings.

One more place where you can find the rankings.
