Development is a phenomenon, which must begin with the insiders or local individuals not from the outsiders. In order to make it sustainable, motivation should come from within an individual and should make efforts to bring positive changes in existing situation. This happens only by making collaborative efforts with others, by acquiring new skills and knowledge and an encouraging environment for active participation in the economic, social and political development activities in the community. In this context, this book has tried to explore the rural people''s understanding of development, the modality of development that they prefer and their reflections on the development activities carried out in the remote villages of Nepal by the development actors. The findings of this study will be useful to the academicians, policy makers and development workers to understand, formulate and implement local development policies/programs according to the people''s aspirations.
