This chapter details the author's perspectives on public policies in a few themes that are critical to human development. These are perspectives that have evolved over a period of time based on the author's engagement with people at the grassroots and an understanding of policy making and its principles through experience and education. Though it may not always be explicitly articulated, the chapter attempts to echo a belief in incorporating grassroots perspectives and people's participation in policy making, its implementation, and feedback on a continuous basis so that the policies are rendered sound and relevant. Ultimately, it argues that the voice and perspectives of the people for whom the policies matter must find greater space in the entire policy discourse.

Keywords:   public policy, human development, grassroots, policy making, policy discourse
