Human Rights Day is observed every year on 10th December –the day the UNITED NATIONS General Assembly adopted in1948,the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.This year Human Rights Day marks the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights at the Palais de Chaillot in Paris, a milestone document that proclaimed the inalienable rights which every one is inherently entitled to as a human being-regardless of race, colour, religion, sex, language, national or social origin, property, birth or other status. All human Beings are Born free and equal in Dignity and Rights.The Historic document ,often labeled as “Modern Day MAGNA CARTA”. Yes many social Organizations working for the human rights raised the voice against the violation of Human rights by state or non-state actors, child rights, crime against woman etc. But so far no organization or political party put up the voice for the violation of rights of casual or master role or contractual workers or employees( may be lack of my personal information).There is nothing difference in terms of work load between regular employee and contractual employee rather contractual employee have more work load and working like a bonded labor. But in terms of salary and other benefits it is a sea difference. No one can raise their voice against their boss as they may be terminated at any point of time. There are many highly qualified persons among contractual employee rather some of them are more qualified and productive than regular walas. What is the difference in the service rendered by these two category of employee? If so why equality is not maintained ? Isn’t a violation of Human Rights ? If this is the case ,what is the meaning of the UNIVERSAL DECLARATION OF HUMAN RIGHTS? Isn’t the dark side of this Universal declaration ? Who is takingcare of these oppressed group of people ? In fact this is a real sad story of human beings. Not only this there are many sectors where violation of human rights is on the fringe.Let’s stands up for equality ,justice and human dignity.
