Human rights are the basic rights and freedoms that belong to every person in the world, from birth until death. They apply regardless of where one is from, what he/she believes or how you chooses to live his/her life. They can never be taken away, although they can sometimes be restricted – for example if a person breaks the law, or in the interests of national security. Human rights include freedom of speech, freedom of press, right to education, right to food, shelter etc. One should have the independence to express one’s views and ideas without interruption from others. All individuals have the right to the basic needs like food, education etc. All individuals have the inherent characteristic of reason and conscience and they should put them into action when necessary. Everybody should act towards one another in the spirit of brotherhood. Citizens of a country should enjoy full freedom and should have right to go to another country and be back whenever they wish. Again, all individuals have the right to be safe in their own country and hence their protection should be ensured by the government. The condition of human rights in our country is not up to the mark. Specially the children and women are in want of enjoying human rights. Because the rural women are neglected even today and bereft of fundamental rights. The street children still exist being deprived of all sorts of human rights. So to improve their condition, the people from all walks of life as well as the government have to come forward and extend their helping hand.
