The level of development is not equal everywhere. Some countries such as those in Western Europe have been developing rapidly for 200 years. These countries are now considered as developed countries. Although there are poor people, most people enjoy the high standard of living. Other countries, mainly Africa, Asia and South America have only been developing for about 50 years and for historical or geographical reasons these developing nations are much poorer. In these countries, an average living standard of people is low.

The economy of a country is stronger if it has more export and less import. Money earned from exports, goods sold abroad and is lost by buying imports from other countries. Though Nepal loses a lot in its imports, it has been earning well from foreign employment. In many parts of the world, the fruit of development is not equally enjoyed by all the people. There is a huge gulf between rich and poor in capitalist societies. So, countries should make an effort to achieve development that can benefit the poor societies more.

Harmony is an abstract act which ultimately gives the message of unity among diversity. This is certainly the need. Our country is small, but it is a garden of mix culture, tradition and system of multilingual society, multi-religious people and multiple tribes of people throughout the country. If the country is governed by the true spirit of constitution and system, there will be a positive output of development regions. This further leads to the feeling of unity, oneness, and ownness. It doesn't create a situation of segregation. This unity is called harmony. Fusion of harmony into unity makes things turn into the strength. Then the development becomes possible.

They can also have a long-term benefit from such works. They also learn to properly mobilize local resources for their own betterment. Sustainability of development works is increasing due to people's participation in the development of the local area.

It is an obvious fact that people are most important resource themselves for any activities. The government allocates, the more or less budget with a plan but the dependencies wholly made by the government is nothing more than foolishness. The planning and budget received by the government is the greatest boon for which the people getting actively involved in their toil, time as a volunteer makes the work reliable, quick, transparent and precious. It is an opportunity of sharing ideas, learning to do things in work and inspiring to work in similar way.
