Abstract:
 
India today is incessantly marching to rapid economic growth pushed through rapid industrialization, infrastructural growth, encouraging more foreign direct investment etc. in the pursuit of achieving the end goal of economic development for all its sovereigns, as cited in most political statements made. However, in the pursuit of economic development for all there seems to be a gap in somewhere over leveraging on economic growth alone, for attaining legitimacy in distribution of economic outcomes while compromising on a more legitimate process to developmental growth. The compromised process here may refer to the sacrifice of basic freedoms of people which seems to affect the overall well-being of sovereigns in the long run.
