As the nation celebrates Children’s Day today, multiple functions will be organized across the nation reiterating the duty and commitment to ameliorate the condition of children across the nation that has the largest child population in the world. While the celebrations are worth appreciating but at the same time there is a need to analyze and review the achievements and policies for this section of population that is the future of the World’s largest democracy. It needs to be seen whether various pledges and initiatives taken viz-a-viz the welfare of children on the occasion remain confined to traditional celebrations only or do get translated on ground with the same spirit as envisaged by the late Prime Minister Pt. Jawahar Lal Nehru who was affectionately called Chacha Nehru by the children. After a meticulous analysis it can be easily said that despite having a number of measures put in place to secure the rights of children, results on ground seem to be far from being satisfactory. Even bringing various legislations to ensure protection of children’s rights could not dispel the dismal situation on this front. The Law Commission of India a few years ago had emphasized that the current legal framework in India does not place enough emphasis on the rights of young children. Today there is a need to focus more on the implementation front as we have not been able to substantially prevent the exploitation of children of all age groups till date with the child labour continuing to be part of the Indian society because of laxity in implementation. We need to focus on the age group that is more vulnerable to depravation of the basic rights impacting the health and education of children during early years of their life. The protection of early childhood development in India depends on policies and schemes created and run by the central and state governments. These need to be taken with utmost seriousness by the policy planners of this nation. It is an acknowledged fact that the greatest evil present in our society today is that of child labour. Despite there being laws on the statute book the violations are visible in most of the business establishments as well as the households across the nation. Nothing can change on ground unless the people at large bring a paradigm shift in their mindset as it is the people who are encouraging child labour by allowing the children to work at homes and business establishments. It is high time that we take a pledge to abhor from any activities that hamper the progress on the front of Children’s welfare. Besides the enforcement agencies should ensure that no violation of Children’s right goes unnoticed or unpunished. In this regard even the recommendations of Law Commission should be accepted and implemented in totality and in true spirit with special focus on implementation on the ground which needs to be further streamlined so as to ensure that the desired results are achieved in the direction of securing Children’s welfare. This would also be the greatest tribute to the great statesman of India on his birthday that has been dedicated to children.
