In the context of a Developing (section 2) region it is important to know whether what is required (section 3) to be provided is resources in kind or currency. If it is a question of provisions in resources in the form of materials, the supply of communication equipment for import into the region seems to be the main and popular option giving all the people a consolation of ?Aiding? and also being ?Aided?. This is a point which can be debated at length whether, providing amenities in their home can bring them a durable comfort and, is it a development strategy (section 4) which eventually make them self-reliant. People who find the instantaneous conveniences could be the everlasting solutions would stoutly support these measures. On the other hand aiding financially requires that there are proper investment strategies, which requires that the recipients be literate and educated. The simpletons would staunchly support this approach on the basis of the fact that imparting education may not be as expensive and literacy levels can be increased at much less cost and does not require much of technological know-how. True that the progress in this approach can be a durable asset and improve the human-resource potentials. But this approach alone cannot bring forth the required regional Industrial Growth. And, it is the triangular considerations (section 5) of this type which become the concerns of Social Scientists who want to provide a strategy to usher in prosperity in the region and how to scale this prosperity index in terms of affluence and abundance indices is in general a global concern.
2. THE POINT OF VIEW OF DEVELOPING ENVIRONMENT
Industrial growth in a developing region is a sign of progress towards prosperity. Since it is possible to pick-out and adapt well established Industrial processes, what remains to be learnt by the inhabitants of the region is to mould their ways of living to adapt the technological means without compromising on the scientific factors locally prevailing which are creditable for the congeniality of local environment.
When the development process is considered it is necessary that the progress of development be monitored by the improvements of the individuals. This means a given individual must improve in his capability to requisition what he has to acquire and be in possession so as to make the minimization, of material dependence on other individuals, and, also, of the necessity for physical assistance from others. This would invariably require learning as to what is it that would be better if it is shared with others for economy and convenience, and, what is it that should be the concern of an individual entirely. This is the strategy of individual improvement, which suggests measures to enhance literacy levels and means of higher education. Such knowledge comes to be within the grasp when movements inspired by involuntary inferences of individuals from their experiences govern these. These developmental movements cannot be directed movements.
On the other hand what would be required, for the retention by each and every individual, to facilitate better cohesion among those who are disposed to be living together and wish not to be in isolated groups, is quick supply of manufactured goods. This brings in the question of the feasibility of manufacture and availability. This is the part of industrial concerns and this growth would require, for development, directed movements of individuals who are supposed to be the beneficiaries. This is the part that which is mostly addressed to while aiding developmental needs since, a speedy transformation in the surroundings is a tangible outcome.
3. DEVELOPMENT ROUTES AND ASSESSING THE PATH TO PROGRESS
The above requires the environmental awareness in the scientific perspective, and, for this, what one can simply import as manufactured materials must also be supported by required literacy level of the public and the provision for the transfer of knowledge about the industrial viability.
Hence if the tailor-made technical goods can be imported, it may not be possible to sustain the (improvements) growth without a provision for teaching the elements of Science and Technology which make-up the importable finished product. If the learning processes do not progress concomitantly with the possible use of materials, then, without such a back-up knowledge, in the long-run it leads to the ways of living regimented by whatever was convenient in the earlier days. But, the present state of growth, can set-in such a motion which is not conducive to stop and monitor for assessing the growth.
4. CAN THERE BE PROGRESS ONLY WITH TECHNOLOGICAL MEANS OF THE IMPORTED EQUIPMENTS AND INSTRUMENTS?
This problem is even more acute in a context when the resources are not much in abundance and there are no viability to develop transport facilities to base an industrial production, but, on the other hand, technological products as equipment?s are brought in as facilities which remain only as a mere opportunistic amenities. And, there is not much scope for teaching/learning process to become relevant and vibrant, but such efforts lead only to peripheral terminology circulation with inflationary amenities abound. The technological equipment thus brought in eventually would provide merely an exhibition-stall display recording perfunctory utilization. Such academic concerns point out the relevance of approaches cited in the two references:
1) Use of Academic Resources of Colleges for Quality and Equity. University News, 40 (35), Page 8,Sept.2-8, 2002.
2) Preparing Teachers as Researchers in Courses on Methods of teaching Sciences. Journal of research in Teaching science, 35,No: 7, 791-809 (1998).
5. MORE INSIGHTS FOR THE CONTEXT OF NORTH EAST INDIA:
It is probably necessary to appreciate that development should be comprising of more of the movements guided by Phenomena. ?A phenomenon is usually characterized by individuals? experiences, which are directly apprehended by senses, for which the causes are no criteria at the instance of occurrence?. Letting them remain to be phenomenal, renders it to border on mere empirical observations which cannot provide a basis for sustainability and economic accountability. These remain merely objective-source experiences of individuals and the inferences (that remain highly subjective to that particular individual and) which can not be much educative for collective appreciation. And, even if such inferences (as they are attributable to a specific individual only) do provide a measure for regulations, these would be prone to be arbitrary and hence can cause inconveniences.
But such an individual?s dependence on objective sources must be channeled as inferences resulting in the comprehension of the causes behind so that the totality of this phenomena results in an objective body of information which becomes amenable to be applicable for the collective endeavor- [at this point it is necessary to reiterate that, even when a surrounding is convenient, ?why is it so convenient?? must be answered and understood, or else the same surrounding might prove eventually inconvenient and at that time it would have already become a path of no return to the earlier or anything better]. It is this part which is subtler and requires eventually a self-regulation of movements along with the phenomenal exposure to the environment. It essentially implies higher cognitive levels, and growth of civilization concomitant with the material benefits, which accrue from Industrial growth.
If it so happens that, just for the reasons of better exposures, the surrounding is rendered abound with imported equipment, the subtler components of development (which are what that make the human civilizations ?possible?) would not be enhanced and the individuals become more constrained with the occurrences from objective sources without having the necessity to comprehend natural phenomena. What is traditionally a fear of nature, becomes customarily convenient, and eventually regimented ways of living. A balanced approach is what should be prescribed or made available as an avenue for progress of growth and development. Hence where traditional practices, though are prevailing because of its only known limited advantages, must be well scrutinized and people must be made to appreciate more of phenomena instead of simply preserving objects for the upholding of the traditional experiences. Simply bringing in peripheral industrial outputs extraneously and getting the inhabitants used to the only ?black-box? approaches would not make the individuals any better but collectively there would be a euphoria prevailing because things appear familiar to what appearances are common place in developed environments.
6. CONCLUDING REMARKS
Current managerial and decision-making tools use extensive varieties of standardized questionnaires to gather data (information) for analysis and can provide necessary monitoring tools. These FORMS and TEMPLATES become conveniently transferable among a certain strata and more or less stand-up on a global footing. But in cases of severe constraints, the same tools must be applied with drastic modifications in the FORMS and TEMPLATES to be useful locally.
Hence to exercise choice on the kind of Aiding strategy, and, identifying and upholding the necessary balances required to sustain the developmental activities, is all what determines the contents in the policy drafts and extents in the reach of the plan proposals.
This requires the annually periodic deliberations reinforcing the findings in successive deliberations and an effort to find methods of how to incorporate the outcomes of the deliberation at the implementation stages. Both directed movements and the phenomenal inferences must form part of the developmental strategy.
Thus individuals? independence to acquire as much phenomenal exposure as one can encounter must be duly transforming into regulated movements as a consequence of the comprehension possible on the occurring events. Even without determining any specific welfare targets, such a conscious way of living only can bring about the required improvement in individuals and development of the environment.
