Seventy & Going…At A Crossroads - Part III

We are celebrating the seventy years of our independence, and it is a joyous occasion. Rightly so, we should celebrate.
We have made a lot of progress and a lot needs to be done.
The stage that we are in, is like standing at a crossroads.

1 - Everyday about 3150 children die from preventable birth related issues.
2 - Over 82 lakh child labourers, aged between 5-14 years.
3 - Everyday 150 mothers die, due to preventable pregnancy-related causes.
4 - One in every third child bride of the world lives in India.
5 - Out of every 100 children, only 32 children finish their school education.
6 - There are 10,000,000 child labourers between 5-14 years in India.
7 - Every 8 minutes, a child goes missing in India.
8 - Around 8.5 lakh children are estimated to die before their first birthday each year.
9 - More than 4.5 lakh girls under 15 years of age who are married, with children of their own.
One is constantly either progressing or declining.
There is no stagnant position.
The struggle between progress and decline is a permanent one. We should all sincerely hope that we will, as a nation will not only win this struggle, but also peg the decline permanently.
It is very crucial and critical that WE ALL stand united, and focus ALL our energies, to fight the evils that are plaguing, so that ALL would do well.
The poem of Robert Frost should be a good reminder to all of us, “…Woods are lovely dark and deep. But I have miles to go before I sleep. Miles to go before I sleep.”
May our nation progress well, so also us, as its children.
