A comparative analysis of western and eastern development perspectives is carried out in this article based on qualitative research. There is continuous and unabated promotion of western type of political economy of capitalism which has expanded the industrial system and created a consumer society. The eastern scholars proposed an alternative development model to overcome the imbalance created by western model. They identified the development goals by taking into account the human side of development. The Millennium Declaration emphasizes that no individual and no nation must be denied the opportunity to benefit from development. The earth summits have pleaded for sustainable development which is a balancing act between three key perspectives - economic, social and environmental. There is common agreement among the scholars that development ultimately means the development of the people, culture, environment and other aspects which benefit the mankind immensely. The champions of alternative development have rightly emphasized a human touch to the process of development which means the development of women and weaker sections of the society statistically and otherwise.
