Why is that the mere mention of the topic of human rights to your contemporaries incites them to categorize you as a “jhola-kurta” type comrade or they instantly suggest you to join politics!Strange… At least the law students of the country should be sensitized and made socially responsible. Today, the “big” law colleges go about brandishing their moot court winners, not the activists. The young students would follow what’s glamorized to them.
Moving onto a bigger problem is the sheer apathy of educated people towards the problems plaguing the society. They lack the grassroots level knowledge and blame everything on the system. Little do they know that the very politicians they vote for run the brothels which treat sex workers as bonded labour, the big beggary rackets in which little kids are maimed in order to beg for alms. If we don’t do something then no one else would either and we can all live blissfully ever after in our little ignorant world.
