Rural Development of India : Why concerned??

You may be surprised why I am so much tended towards Rural India instead of India as a whole. You are observing that India is making strides in economic front. You may be surprised to see the other end of it, unfortunately this developing is widening the gap between rural and urban "exponentially". For example, let us consider china (if not our bihar), during 1980's when the economic development was happening, it took policies according to investor's priorities which made (today) east china is "no less than" any developed country where as "west china" remained very similar to its old situation (in fact, very similar to todays rural India). Much faster development in the east is not able to make any changes western part. So that was the reason why I feel this is the right time to save the rural mass upto my level at least. And the problem is growing so rapidly that we may not be able to solve. And one more reason: "Security of total Network = security of its weakest link in the network". I presume, development should also be assessed with its poorest place.

I have attachment towards those who are working hard under scorching sun light and staying in rural area.I have experienced that all our rural people are full of spiritual thoughts and in true scenes they know their duties. I love Indian culture, lifestyle, spirituality and the way they treat all leaving creature as God.In the future we should make a Model Plan to built rural India. That plan should be prepared with support of all and includes all aspect of development from sanitary to employment. With this in mind I started Ae Vatan Blog said...

Genuine Rural Development needs promotion of cloud seeding operations
Indian Meteorologists refuse to learn from China on cloud seeding operations to fight the droughts.China employs yearly 37000 technicians to produce 65 billion cubic meters of additional rainfall at the benefit cost ratio of 29;1.Chinese scientists are very proud of helping their farmers and farm workers who need more water for augmenting productivity.For more details see web the following

I appreciate your concern on rural development. However, I do not agree with your china example.

Development should be sustainable, unlike the case of China's. Unarguably, Beijing is one of world's most polluted cities. So is the case with most of China's "developed" eastern provinces.
Let us not blindly look outside and imitate, instead, lets learn from their mistakes.
