In his address Mr Prabhu Badiger, the chief guest, compared children to flowers.
Flowers are very soft and smooth and they are very attractive when they are on plants.
In the same way children too are very attractive and they must be respected as they are
with dignity and rights. Everyone in the society must take the responsibility to care for
children. There is also the free legal advice centre supporting the children specially who
are abused to get justice.
Mr Vijaykumar spoke on Children’s Parliament and child marriage act. He asked the
children to make use of Children’s Parliament to redress their grievances. For him
November 14 th is a festival of children. They must be allowed to attend the school in
colour dress and the teachers must prepare different programmes to make them happy.
According to Mr Ramanaik Y, student life is the golden time of life. So no one must
waste this precious time period. Every student must have an aim in life and they must
try hard to attain it.
There was also an oath taken by both children and adults in between the programme
pledging to nurture and protect child rights. The oath was administered by Mr Kotresh,
Coordinator, Don Bosco Childline Collab, Davangere.
