Can we include Consciousness as a Development Indicator?

Consciousness as a Development Indicator

Consciousness as a Development Indicator

First of all, I Would like to say that the aim of development, modernization like we see from developed countries in the west – seems not what it is. Development seems multidimensional and holistic. Theories that are made in regards to development, when we see them from realities, we feel if something is missing. That’s not all what we are measuring. But even if we go deepening our critical insight into play, they don’t seem to offer any alternatives. And that is a big Dilemma over all.

To overcome and come out of these Dilemmas, what could be one of the indicators of development if possible to measure it scientifically.  If we are able to measure Consciousness of whole living beings, then that can be multidimensional and holistic as similar to the nature of development we see. And, to explain it more, when we are conscious of development then we feel development. Even if we see something under developing with the lenses of the present development indicators, looking through the lenses of consciousness it may represent different and complete in itself.

So, if we take consciousness as a Indicator, it doesn’t only refer to individualism as in the case of Amartysen capability approach, but it can be refer to global as global consciousness, if we are able to measure and interpret it.

So, with the present world of questioning to Development itself like whether we need development or not, why paradigms have been shifting and lots of variation in alternative development we see – consciousness could be the development indicators to make present world perception of development to complete and make the process in wholeness.

If we go to consciousness taking into consideration, we would be going to address its high energy fields. So, As we come to know that everything is energy and energy has its own field. So, in this perspective if we look development, Development is a high energy field. This can also be included in Human development, culture and power – which are nothing but the high energy fields.

When we are going to address high energy fields, then certainly we would be analyzing in terms of their frequencies of energy fields. From single energy fields to combine with multiple energy fields, we would be looking its combined form and may call it synergy or combined consciousness of same frequencies.

So, we would be able to look into development from subtle level of human existence, then this could be accurate in terms of holistic, multidimensional and energy fields that we are analyzing development in terms of consciousness, energy and frequencies.

How do you see Development?

How do we measure development

Development in current scenario

How do you see Development in this current scenario of disparity and inequality of income, status and state of beings?

We see construction of buildings, employment generation, rise in Gross national income in developed countries every decades or so. But, in the same place rich gets richer and poor gets poorer. There are slums on the other sides of lofty building and offices like in india.

Urbanization has been creating from rural regions and this trend is being spreading quickly. It can be due to development of infrastructure and quick access to information. People in the underdeveloped countries are more quickly and easily getting benefits of urbanization than the urbanized places in developed countries. For instance, access to phone calls rates are more cheaper in the urbanization of developing countries than in the urbanization of  developed countries. Local transportation are cheaply available than having your own private vehicle. Disparity exists in terms of experiences we get.

In slums people are not getting enough  health care, education, sanitation and clean drinking water while on the other hand, the case is different. Higher purchasing power due to increase in income and employment, they are getting better in credits from banks, good sanitation, enough foods and drinking water with better education to their children. But, they could live unhealthy, short lived,and have many interrelation problems in the family. ‘ Disparity do exits.

Similarly, in developed countries crime, corruption exits.

Development studies in Nepal – a Need!

Looking for the development change in Nepal

The development studies of Nepal – where actually this has been leading? At where it has reached so far. What are the expert and well wishers of Nepalese development are doing nowadays? What are the challenges they are facing to uplift the nation as a whole? In every sectors including socio-economic and political environment, what are the changes the Nepalese are facing? and how these changes drags the over all development of Nepal? and the key people who contribute to the national development : where are they focusing nowadays and where they should focus to integrate the national development through poverty elevation and economic development. Finally, but not the least, bringing the change in the life style of the people towards more peaceful and happiness through prosperity. These all aspects of Nepalese scenario, the preparation what academician and policy maker of Nepal would love to do in the contribution of development needs of personnel is to prepare the future needs of Manpower in these aspects – The need of development Workers!

Development workers will be equipped with the knowledge of development studies.  Basically, Development works are some kind of small projects which integrated themselves to form a larger one which will actually takes a role in the over all growth of people and the nation itself.

In the development, we have many aspects ; social, economic, political. The development knowledge should have covered all those aspects. So, the integrated approach applies to understand the overall development of the nation, and the same approach should apply by the development worker themselves to understand, plan, process, analyze and the evaluate the system and the project work in which they involve. Basically we need people to carry out these things in the development of nation. No doubt at all. Because anything small or big we do is some kind of projects. So, Project planning and management is the key after all. For this the good proposal must come from the people – a good idea is required and A idea can change life! which is true.

For the project planning once the proposal has been generated. There can be various aspects to consider ; they can be raising funds to prepare for the acceptance of change felt by the people in the development process. It would take a decade or a century to apply and make feel by the people – the change through development. There can also be small to medium projects which will take 5 years or less to complete depending upon the nature of it.

This development studies basically is a whole life process in which a person can devote into it in the development of the village , town , city and the nation as a whole. The feasibility of development studies in Nepal is good because of Nepal itself as a developing country.

Making short term and long term goals, Nepal should be undergoing change in its development as it is sandwich between world’s economic giants China and India. The policy maker should be aware of these scenarios that has been impacting the Nepalese lifestyle of the people in and out of their home. Development makers don’t decide for the people but the people themselves would have choices in the environment what they get in the country. We could get different patterns of thinking and preferences through which we could get the aspect of development what the people feel could be their own choices and experiences. This will undergo transformation into lives of many development seekers.

We don’t know how will this change manifest into our Nepalese lives, but we should be in the process of development studies, and is indeed a need of the people of Nepal. If everyone will be contributing in the development of Nepal, it will obviously grow, and those who contribute will be the development workers!

We basically can contribute in many ways, whether you have an idea, you can give to the concerned. Whether you have a business, you can make it grow and give service to the people. If you have a skill, you can pass that skill to the new comers and build groups, communities and a society. If you can write you can write, inform and educate to the readers to make a contribution. Drops by drops make a million in an ocean, which we all know.
