Thought for the day

"Babies are unreasonable; they expect far too much of existence. Each new generation that comes takes one look at the world and thinks wildly, "Is this all they've done to it?" and bursts into tears."

--------- Clarence Day

Childescents - Moment of introspection

Childescents, or children in the age group of 15-18 years, are the most disadvantaged group, noted a report by Child Rights and You (CRY) on the World Population Day. The report, titled ‘Childescents of India: We Are Children Too’, is a comprehensive narrative on 15-18-year-olds — “their rights and the lack of them, vulnerabilities of the age group that often go unnoticed and the many discrepancies that seep in while we discuss about this particular set of children”. The childescents lose out on the Right of Children to Free and Compulsory Education Act that ensures education for all within the age group of 6-14 years as soon as they cross 14; they are no longer under the protection of the Child Labour (Prohibition and Regulation) Act (CLPRA) as the Act allows children in the age group of 15-18 years to join the workforce barring a limited list of occupations and processes that are considered hazardous.
