There are new initiatives in the field of social development.
There are decades of learnings and experiences too.
Diverse Perspectives, Ideologies, Insights and approaches have been there
Each one as important as the other.
Every tiny effort as an alternative path to development is important to challenge the monstrous capture by the consumerist mega players.
