Communication and Rural Development

The title chosen for this paper is “Communication and Rural Development”. Why “communication” and not “education”? Because, however it may be re-defined, “education” still means, for most people, something that teachers give and pupils get, usually in schools and universities. This paper, on the other hand, is concerned with the whole complex, kaleidoscopic pattern of human relationships, through which ideas are exchanged, skills acquired, knowledge increased and behaviour changed and by which development is largely brought about.
