Bhopal, Plachimada, Worth of an Ordinary Citizen and Development

Dr.K.Saradamoni, 14th August 2010, comments

Funnily, we hear intermittently quotations from Gandhiji , either India is made up of her villages or there is enough to satisfy everybody’s need,not anyone’s greed. If these are to become a reality the present model of development which is catered to make the rich richer has to be discarded. The people who are hitherto discriminated and pushed to the backyards should become the focus of development. These two are not at all easy. Such a shift in focus needs serious rethinking , change in mindsets, redefinitions and new priorities. There is no ready-made model for us to transplant in our country. However, with the growing awareness about climate change, environmental degradation, the need to protect forests and nature in total, the commitment of nations to ensure food security to the people, it becomes our responsibility to start discussions on these crucial issues. >>
