It is often mentioned that children are the future of the world, of every country. What we need to think is, however, that children are also very much the present of the world. They are equal citizens of any country. And thus, any transformation starts with children. Whenever a child’s potential goes unrealised, it turns into an area of growth missed by a country. Over the past decade and a half, the Indian government has shown impressive intent in formulating various policies for children and committing to international ratifications, including the UNCRC (United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child). It would seem that our government, too, is keen on investing in the population under the age of 18, if keenness is measured by the variety of laws and policies. The reality, however, is markedly different.
