  7. TH: SAFE CHILDHOODS FOR A SAFE INDIA GS-2 o 4.3 million children in India wake up to day of labour and not to school. Another 9.8 million are officially out of school o Q-Why child labour is ringing concern o Answer It perpetuates illiteracy and poverty. It is root cause of organised crimes, drug trafficking, human trafficking, terror groups. India recently ratified ILO convention 182 on worst forms of child labour and Convention 138 on minimum Age of Employment to curb the menace of child labour o Main bottleneck for ratifying convention 182 and 138 was addressing forced or compulsory recruitment of children and appropriately raising the children's age from 14 to 18 years through Child Labour (Prohibition and Regulation) amendment bill, 2016 These two conventions are part of 8 core conventions on labour. Other 6 relates to right to form associations, collective bargaining, forced labour, abolition of forced labour, equal renumeration and discrimination convention o As a matter of urgency, the government will take immediate and effective measures to prohibit and eliminate the worst forms of child labour Under the provisions of the ILO Conventions 182 and 138, India will not adhere to a fixed deadline by which the worst forms of child labour must be eliminated

  8. TH: SAFE CHILDHOODS FOR A SAFE INDIA GS-2 It will ultimately depend on the level of moral courage, public concern, social empathy, political will and the implementation of resources invested in the development and protection of children o Some of worst forms of child labour- Child slavery (including sale and traffickin of children, debt bondage, forced recruitment to armed conflict), child prostitution and their use in pornography, use in illicit activities such as drug trafficking, exposure to hazardous work. o What needs to be done? o Experience of Nobel laureate shows that social changes don't happen overnight but it involves govt resolve abs o The government has shown steadfastness and strong resolve to uphold the rights of our children, and so must we steadfastness to move in singular direction with sincerity Investment in children is an investment in the future

  9. LIVEMINT: MAKING CITIES SAFER WITH PUBLIC TRANSPORT GS-2 There is intimate relation between safe and secure public transport, women empowerment, women participation and gender balanced development. These examples illustrate it well - case of Ahmedabad in context of gender mainstreaming in public transport revealed that women tend to take longer routes rather than crossing a neighbour that is desolate or poorly lit When govt of Bihar distributed free bicycles to girls in 2007 in a bid to encourage girls to continue secondary school, female dropout rate reduced drastically. It shows that by securing transportation needs of poor who cannot afford private vehicles, one can ensure its participation in civic affairs Vienna considered gender based city planning to increase women participation International Labour Organisation data shows decrease of women in workforce from 35%to 25%from 2004 to 2011. Better transportation facilities were one of its reason Safe and secure cities doesn't mean more CCTV cameras or women only buses but cheap, efficient public transport system ensuring last-mile connectivity to be used by every socioeconomic class. Mainstreaming and not exclusion in public space is catalyst for women empowerment

  10. TH: THE LIMITS TO POPULAR SENTIMENT GS-2 o Jallikattu ban- In the name of cultural pride and custom and tradition, students and youth have risen up. The show of solidarity has been peaceful, in sharp contrast to the aggression shown by some enthusiasts on social media in targeting certain celebrities for their earlier support to PETA People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals). o Past vs Present sport-jallikattu in its present form is of relatively recent origin, intended to make bulls run amok for the sake of spectacle. Instead of the traditional form of one man against one animal, latter-day jallikattu is a mass- participant ritual of hundreds of men chasing a bull and trying to hold on to its hump or stop it by pulling at or twisting its tail. Few other feudal traditions have survived in modern, progressive India in the name of masculine valour and cultural pride. o Why Ban now?- in spite of previous opportunities give by the court to regulate the sport was a failure by state authorities -In 2013, under the watch of the Animal Welfare Board of India, the onus was on the State of Tamil Nadu o Efforts that are now on to nullify the effect of the Supreme Court judgment through the ordinance route thus carry a serious risk of judicial reproach. Govts need to persuade court to reform the sport, ensure safety of spectators and eliminate cruelty against animals It is all right if popular sentiment can influence legislation, but it cannot undermine the rule of law
