Expert Answer:

Every individual is different from each other and hence their notion of development also varies. Two individuals or group of people may have conflicting interests. The fulfillment of the desires of one group may have an opposite effect on the other group. For example, the building of large dams is considered as the sign of development by many people. However, it results in the displacement of the villagers and tribals from their homes and the destruction of forest land. They therefore resent the building of large dams and hold protests demanding their land. The ‘Narmada Bachao Andolan’ is one such case where the villagers and tribals are protesting against the building of Sardar Sarovar Dam on the river Narmada.
