To understand 'Development' by questioning its basics.

The process of preparation requires us to ask a few basic questions:

  • What do we mean by development? How exactly do we define it?
  • Why do we need development? Is it essential to follow this path, or is it optional but we consider it essential?
  • If we need development, how do we decide the direction of development? For example, development may mean eating packaged machine-based food, and it may also mean eating self-grown home-made food.
  • While we decide the direction of development, how do we consider our relationships with each other and with plant, animal and material world?
  • Lastly, thinking beyond Roti, Kapda, Makaan, Bijli, Paani and other essentials, what are the intangible outcomes of development that may give meaning to our existence on this planet?

‘प्रश्न विकास का’ is a dialogue meticulously designed for asking all these questions one by one in rural context and for reflecting on them collectively, both while being in a circle and while being on-field talking to villagers about their life experiences. On one hand, the dialogues shall try to find new answers to its central questions, and on the other, the dialogue shall also try to re-evaluate the direction of development we have taken so far as a society. In the process, the dialogue shall consider ideas like ‘Localization’, ‘Self-reliance’, ‘Globalization’, ‘Industrialization’, ‘Governance’ while keeping in mind the modern tools such as ‘Technology’, ‘Education’, ‘Infrastructure’, ‘Tourism’, ‘Entrepreneurship’ etc.

Those who wish to work or who are already working for the development of the villages in India in any field such as Education, Livelihood, Health, Technology etc. Also, please keep in mind that this dialogue shall focus on 'Why should we develop our villages?' and not on 'How should we execute our ideas?'. Therefore, this Dialogue shall not be an appropriate platform to talk about fundraising, execution, marketing, team building etc.

Note: Selected Participants shall have to submit a non-refundable deposit of Rs 2,000 each in order to secure their space in the dialogue. The remaining 50% of the cost may be submitted during the course of the dialogue.
