  3. What we think about rights We think that rights are the things and opportunities which we deserve, and which no one can deny to us e also think that whoever is stopping us from exercising our right is wrong It can be the Government, or any other institution

  4. BUT There is a big difference in what we think our rights are, and what actually our rights are Many a times, we think that whatever we want is our right However, rights have to be REASONABLE AND JUSTIFIED


  6. What rights actually mean In reality, rights are the CLAIMS that we have orn other people and things These claims should be JUSTIFIED and have SOCIAL BACKING

  7. Right to have a respectable livelihood is a right that is accepted by the society However, right to bribe and get your work done is not a right approved by society

  8. Universal nature of rights Usually, the rights which should be given to all people across the world are SIMILAR So, these are also called universal rights However, some countries do not give even the basic rights to their people, and as a result the people have to fight for rights

  9. Saudi Arabia's ban on women driving come to an end

  10. Why do we need rights? Without rights, a society cannot develop When we have certain rights, we get the opportunity to develop our talents and create new opportunities for ourselves For instance, when we have right to education, we learn new things about the world and decide how we want to contribute to the society

  11. We might want the right to smoke in public However, the state might deny such a right to us This is because when we smoke, we harm ourselves as well as those around us Similarly, many states in India have banned drinking alcohol Using drugs is also banned in our country. However, many countries are thinking about legalizing drugs, which is a debatable topic
