Welcome Address was delivered by Prof. (Dr.) Pradeep Kulshrestha, Dean, School of Law, Sharda University. He shared the importance of child rights and furthermore introduced the Guest Sheela Barse( Human Rights Activist). Honble Guest Ms. Sheela Barse started with her experiences which made her to become a Human Right Activist. The 19 weeks no light over Bharat during the time when the Constitution was suspended gave her the idea that she should tear away those pages from the history of Bharat which is forbidding the light to enter within. Furthermore, she mentioned that child should be given particularly three things apart from the life. The first right is the right to idealism which means that the child considers the elders as it ideals and we should not fracture that interest. The second one is that the child should have the right to privacy. He should have at least one hour a day by himself. And the third right mentioned about the child was the right to identity. Furthermore, the discussion shifted to mental illness. But she stated that it is mere behavioral disorder. There was a comparison between the care and affection which was earlier found in ancient era and in contemporary society. Everytime the child wants unconditional acceptance and warmth feeling. The story of Leela and Rocky were some which stated that how guidance can help change the life of a child and make that person come out of a tragedy and to lead a better life.
Thereafter, the question answer session started. There with the help of religious texts and spiritual examples the concept of fear and selflessness were brilliantly explained. The session got an end when Ma;am said that try to oppose every evil because when you do something good, God will definitely have you back and will protect you.
