There are many things in our society that are happening against women, that’s why women still seeking their position in society. At job level people cannot understand the hard-work of female employee and judging them in a false manner, and that’s why females faces a lot of discrimination. In few families women are tortured for not bringing enough dowry, and also shows displeasure when a baby child is born. such partial behavior is still in practice.
In ancient times people paid a lot of respects to women. But this is very sad as the time passes things got changes drastically.

In future, this leads to the greatest loss of society. This is very unhealthy for the society.
The age in which children should study at the time they get married. At a very young age they got lot of responsibilities. Even they were not emotionally developed too. Some parents worried about their child’s marriage; that’s why they did not invest their money in education. They just save their money for their dowry. So this also a big hurdle in the path of development of society.
When the children under 14 years of age are made to work for living, it is known as child labor. As children are the coming citizens of our country. So, it is the responsibility of each individual to guide them in the right direction. It is the right of every children to get all the basic things. They should get proper food, clothes, good health facilities, education so that they are capable to build strong India. There are many cases where children die due to starvation. Malnutrition and poverty are increasing in our society at major level. To fulfill his hunger and family needs children are compelled to work at minor age. Even it is unlawful to employ children below 14 years of age.
