    Dr Reddy, an honorary distinguished professor at the Public Health Foundation of India, highlighted the importance of public policy being multi-disciplinary and grounded. He mentioned that public policy should prioritize the welfare and happiness of those who depend on it.

    This year’s dialogues are centered around the theme of human development. During the plenary session on ‘Human Development Perspective from India’, Amarjeet Sinha, a retired IAS officer, emphasized the need to bridge the gap between micro and macro aspects of public policy. He mentioned the importance of addressing the aspirations of students from government schools. Sinha also announced the publication of six volumes of books capturing experiential learning to contribute to grassroots knowledge.
