  • Is Raju a person? What is the intended meaning of the sentence? – CowperKettle Dec 17 '15 at 10:22
  • Raju is a person's name. Maybe, Sandesh (An Indian) wants to say that Raju is a 'self-made' person. – Maulik V Dec 17 '15 at 11:12

The third sentence doesn't make much sense and it's wordy so don't use it.

It largely depends on the context of the sentence but if Raju is a thing (software, robot, etc.) then the first sentence means that someone is developing it (someone is doing the work), improving it and so on.

The second sentence conveys that Raju is developing by himself/itself. This might not be the case, but as the sentence stands on its own that's what it conveys. It could mean that someone is developing Raju but on its own it's ambiguous.
