Mahatma Gandhi was an intensely active personality. He was interested in everything that concerns the individual or society. He is best known as the matchless political leader who evolved the new technique of Satyagraha. His fight against untouchability and the notions of superiority and inferiority by birth are also fairly well known. For India, his greatest service was, perhaps, the emancipation of Indian women. Educating children should be normally the easiest of things, but somehow its has become, or been made, the most difficult. Experience shows that the children are always learning one thing or another whether we notice it or not and whether what they learn is good or bad. The children's rights movement is a historical and modern movement committed to the acknowledgement, expansion, and/or regression of the rights of children around the world. Child labour has been a problem with us for many centuries. It was hoped that with the advent of freedom in 1947 this evil would be eradicated. This book reliable one stop reference on all issues pertaining to Defining Child Right from Gandhian Perspective. (jacket)
