Prasad requested a bit more on the distinction between development and growth. Consider the life-cycle of a normal human being. The initial stages are marked by growth and development; the later stages by a cessation of growth but continued development (hopefully). Growth, apart from that required in the initial stages, is neither necessary nor sufficient for development. One can have one without the other.
Growth is characterized by an increase in the physical system. Development, a more generalized concept, is characterized by an evolution of a more balanced and enriched system. Because growth is primarily physical, there are limits to growth but not to development.
The development of a child is accompanied with growth. The growth of an adult is not necessarily a good thing. It could lead to obesity. Growth gone haywire is what cancer is all about.
Carrying the distinction over to the economic sphere, we can say that poor countries need both growth and development. But beyond a certain point, growth can be detrimental to development.
For India to develop, we do need growth in some areas and in some other areas we need a cessation of growth. We need to increase economic output but we need to check the unsustainable population growth.
