Children are the Future of a Nation

By Anuj Chugh

What does one really need in this world, that he / she can't live without? Ans. Food, water and peace of mind, to keep him/her going. These are all physical and mental needs that guarantee one's sanity, health and well-being.

Some children are intelligent and really want to learn, to read and write, so that they can study their way out of the shackles of poverty. What comes in the way even when they have access to primary education is, their life's rudeness to score them two meals a day.

India is surrounded by poverty, yet no one does anything about it. Poverty makes a person, a handicap, even with all limbs intact. It is difficult to escape out of it.

I think people in India only have a mentality that if a person is born normal, then he / she can work his / her way to the food they need. But, the fact can also be that because he / she didn't receive proper nutrition ever in their lives, hard labor takes a toll on their health.

Even if they are willing to work for wages, they get stuck in the cycle of receiving those wages only to be spent on the hunger of their tummies, everyday. They work so that they can eat and they eat so that they can work. How can anyone expect them to get out of their poverty, when these poor folks can't manage to have any savings?

Only education can save poor people. All I want is for this country to provide primary, secondary and even higher education ( In the form of distribution of 1 or 2 important & key books) and sufficient food till at least, the child attains 16 years of age.

Children are the future of our country. In-fact, children all over the globe, are the future of the world. So, why do we let them starve and beg on the roads when they are supposed to get educated ? Why only privileged children should get educated and better opportunities?

Why can't anyone see their tears and the questions they ask themselves about the conditions they found themselves in, since their birth? Before having dreams of providing every child with education till secondary level, why not start with providing them with food so that they don't have to beg or perform hard labour for themselves and their families ?

Children are the Future of a Nation. Period. Even if they are born in poverty, it doesn't change this fact. But by accepting this fact and acting on it, we can change their future.
