Dr.K.Panchaksharam CEO for SIPA and former secretary for SCI Tamil nadu Group spoke on “Equality and Social brotherhood.

Dr.K.Panchaksharam CEO for SIPA and former secretary for SCI Tamil nadu Group spoke on “Equality and Social brotherhood.

Social equality is a state of affairs in which all people within a specific society or isolated group have the same status in certain respects. At the very least, social equality includes equal rightsunder the law, such as security, voting rights, freedom of speech and assembly, property rights and equal access to social goods and services. However, it also includes concepts of health equity, economic equality and other social securities. It also includes equal opportunities and obligations, and so involves the whole of society.

Social equality requires the absence of legally enforced social class or casteboundaries and the absence of discrimination motivated by an inalienable part of a person’s identity.For example, sex, gender, race, age, sexual orientation, origin, caste or class, income or property, language, religion, convictions, opinions, health or disability must not result in unequal treatment under the law and should not reduce opportunities unjustifiably. Social equality refers to social, rather than economic, or income equality. “Equal opportunities” is interpreted as being judged by ability, which is compatible with a free-market economy.

Ms. A.GloryGunaseeli- superintend, Juvenile home spoke on “Women and Child welfare”

Woman and children are most vulnerable to war and atrocities. In this world of modernization, children are most exposed to vulgarity through mobile, TV and internet. Being in the field of juvenile home there are numerous examples how children are exploited by the bad societies. We talk much about the rights of the child but should also teach them their responsibilities. Trafficking of children and women are the most crime happening in our society. 1/3rd of the missing are not found is the statistics of the govt.
Other issues are sexual and physical abuse on children and women. Most such children come from the broken families. Children are exposed to various types of addiction including thinner and solution addiction. She also spoke on how children become soft targets to trance genders, who brain wash them and they are castrated and compelled to begging and sex rackets. So govt. and the NGOs have greater role in safeguarding such children and women in the society.
