About Webinar

Human Rights are Natural Rights to be Human and Remain Human. The antonym of 'Inhuman' is 'Human’. Whereas 'wrongs' to any one is violation of rights in 'beings'. The term inhuman clearly explains our dislike towards manners, behaviors and actions which are great hindrances & threats to our day to day routine work and progress in life. Human Rights movement talks about the basic aspects of life, essential for human living and further development. We look to the only Governmental Agencies for our protection. But we forget the near and dear ones and foolishly believe them saviors. The victims of inhuman wrongs are from poor to affluent, only the mode and manners is different .The Institutions are to protect Human beings from 'Inhuman wrongs' and promote developmental measures. Despite our beliefs In democratic set up, all are crying for Human Rights protection. This forces us to think that something is wrong on the part of ’Human Beings'. Human Rights has to be protected by Human beings only. Even the agencies are also set of Human Beings. This draws our attention that something is wrong on the part of human beings - towards 'Duties and Responsibilities’. The fiftieth anniversary of UDHR deals with Human Duties and Responsibilities (DHDR). In this background, the Seminar tries to explore the mechanisms of 'Human Duties and Responsibilities'--Individual, family, society and the Nation. The Indian Constitution does talk about Fundamental Rights (FR), Directive Principles of State Policy (DPSP) and Fundamental Duties (FD). But there is no express provision which can explain Fundamental Responsibility (FR) of individuals towards himself, his family, Society and the Nation and the Coordination among FR, DPSP, FD & FR as well.
