Navin dove deep in terms of his opinions on how the current way of learning is perceived and said that schools and colleges should pick a few concepts and ideas and dive deep into them instead of  ways that they can be mended.  To add to the educational insights Navin also highlighted, the importance of a gap year after graduation as it helps an individual explore and venture out beyond what college offers.
