The paper examines rural Indians perspectives on education and related aspects of life. This population has its own notions, practices, judgments, and opinions, which are often the results of their historical experiences, traditional living style, and cultural values and practices. With the awakening of development, education has become one of the most crucial factors of quality living. Fortunately, even rural India has started accepting the change and the wave of education and development. Yet there is a long way to go. Keeping the same in mind, this research provides an overview of the mentality, psychology, beliefs, and thoughts of the people related to education and development in rural India. The research develops around the survey conducted in a rural village of North India (Uttar Pradesh), which collected the opinions and views people hold on subjects related to education and development in rural India. The indifference for schooling because of high expenditures, gender bias on the educational front, lack of parental motivation for quality and higher education, irregular attendance at schools, and low aspirations among villages because of poverty dynamics are some of the findings that the paper discusses. Furthermore, the collected data of the survey provides a peek into the lives of rural people, who form almost 65% of the population, with an emphasis on the rural developmental factors.
