A day which is glorified should be known to one and all for its special reason and worth. Commemorating a day without virtue is like living a life without purpose.
In the last seven years of motherhood, I have witnessed children outgrowing their age at a rapid speed within the age group of 3-8 years. Sadly, the community of virtuous adults has had to pay the penalty of fear for educating children in this age group at a very embryonic stage of the social evils practiced by an appalling group in the society that we live in. It is very disheartening as these tiny minds are obligated to live so cautiously when they deserve a life which should be happy, carefree, and exuberant.
Emphasis should be laid on a legal binding upon the citizens of a country to learn and understand the civil, political, economic, social, health, and cultural rights of a child. Every family must ensure to diligently lead their children into adulthood for them to have a culturally enriched society to live.
The less fortunate population of India which is not exposed to literacy & lives in a conservative environment, and to those who demean humanity and have forgotten its prominence. We, the responsible population must initiate a process to educate this callous community, that a child in India deserves unlimited love, kindness, affection, a peaceful and protected environment during his or her growing years, irrespective of their race and status of all kinds.
It is now more than Sixty years since the idea to celebrate children’s day was proposed in the year 1954 to The UN General Assembly, by one of India’s most powerful diplomats, V.K. Krishna Menon, to commemorate the fundamental “Rights of the Child” universally. It is the time when we as a nation should make an effort to understand the articles listed in the “Convention on the Rights of the Child” which is a conceptualized version of Mr. Menon’s vision that was adopted as a Declaration by the UN Assembly in the year 1989 on November 20th.
THIS DECLARATION DEFINES THE PURPOSE OF CELEBRATING CHILDREN’ S DAY
As good citizens let’s remind us that The UN Child Rights Declaration Condemns all social evils such as Child Prostitution/sexual exploitation, Child Trafficking, Child Labor, Child domestic violence, Girl child infanticide, and so on and so forth.
I thought I’d remind myself, and help the others to remember and spread the importance of Children’s day this November.
This year let us celebrate Children’s Day to accentuate A Child’s Freedom & Rights, which was also Chacha Nehru’s dream. Let the 14th of November primarily be remembered as The Rights of the Child Day, & secondly as Pandit Nehru’s birthday in remembrance of his true love for children.
Innocence is every child’s fundamental right. Let us all join together & Promise on this Children’s Day to protect it.
Happy Children’s Day
