Development must sustain for generations to come.This is a time when all are talking about development and the Governments are announcing several projects for this. Media go on splashing news about them and holding heated discussions. In all these political or such differences are projected. Little importance is given the fact whether it is aiming at sustainable development or not.
Majority of the projects are designed to suit only a very small fraction of the society. Interests of the majority will be overlooked. An example is the high speed corridor project or the projects for more aerodromes. Sometimes the aim of the project will be for land grabbing. Hundreds of hectares of land are purchased for starting university campuses. In all these short term interests of a group decides the importance of the project, not its sustainability or the benefits to the majority.
Detailed discussion about all the projects must be taken up at all levels in order to find out really how they benefit the majority as a whole.
