Equilibrium of Development

Development is a keyword used very often nowadays. All — nation, state, region, locality, society, institutions, organizations — are in pursuit of development. At the same time, it is not at all an exaggeration to tell that occasions are not less when this word itself becomes a riddle.

A glance into the dictionary gives the synonyms of development as evolution, growth, maturity, enlargement, expansion, progress, success etc. An event constituting a new stage in a changing situation is another explanation for development. Biologically, development is the process of growing maturity.

Depending upon the context, the explanations and indices may vary as in child development and human development. Let us leave all those statistical jargons and scholarly explanations to have a glance on development in a smaller angle, that is, in our surroundings.

Even the narrow lanes in villages have been concreted and roads are tarred. With superfast vehicles highways and railways make travelling less time consuming. Airports and flight services are becoming more popular.    Skyscrapers, Palatial buildings, shopping complexes, malls, star hotels, super specialty hospitals, high class educational institutions stand as milestones in the path of development.  As if to keep pace with the speed of development the shape and structure of houses and flats have undergone inexplicable metamorphosis.

Hills are vanishing within days and paddy fields are becoming plain lands.  Wet lands are also disappearing.  Excavators and such huge machines popularly known by the brand name J C B are not strange even in remote areas.  Stone crushing and sand mining are developing rapidly.

It is true that we must sacrifice so many things for development.  But the balanced state of ecology, environment and development should not be broken.  Any type of destruction exceeding the limit affecting the environment    will be with disastrous consequences not only for the present generation but also for the generations yet to come.

The fact is that most of the advanced facilities including hospitals are inaccessible   to layman.  Another pertinent point is that multiplying number of hospitals does not reflect the health of the society.  Food, shelter, healthcare and education at affordable price and employment opportunities to the deserving may be a true index of development and a sign of healthy and happy society.
