How far Have we come?
Bhubaneswar – No wonder science and technology has taken a new shape in the educational sector but how far have we come when it comes to educating people about human rights?Data reveals only 4 in 10 people are aware about the fundamental human rights! Is this what we call development?
Human rights are weaved into the societal garment so as to protect the vulnerable from exploitation, allow people to live a dignified life and express their opinions in order to cut down corruption. It ensures children get basic amenities and quality education. All these legalities seem too powerful but the implementation gets a setback! Is it not our duty to 'awake' the already 'woken' and ignite the fire of human rights! Many activists and reforms are working towards the upliftment of people who are deprived of the basic necessities of life. How can only making laws change the deteriorating condition of the people in a country like India where red-tapism, corruption, exploitation, harassment, and crimes exist in every corner.
For the prosperity of people all over the world, government and citizens must ensure to protect each other at all costs. All the injustice and crimes happening around will come to a stop when ‘we’ come together as one unit to tackle this issue.
