Child Safety: Common wealth Games, crowd.

“As traditionally games are for the pleasure of children,
So make our children prosperous with the Big-Game.”

The clock is running minutes by minutes and seconds by seconds, so is the pace of increasing crime in the capital city. Steps are being taken to help women with the advent of Common Wealth Games to make city safe for them but our thinkers are not paying head towards the safety and welfare of innocent child. If not for the welfare of our children then at least think about the impact the situation will leave in the mind of 53 nations which are coming here.
We should work positively for their safety and raising their livelihood level.
Children are the destiny driver of a nation. Child needs special care and should be provided with all facilities to grow properly but today children are not treated humanly. There are many problems which they have to face. They are forced to work under pressure. They are working in dhabas, hotels, chimney and at hazardous places. Even 10-12 years children are forced to carry 20-40 kgs of bricks at a time. Besides these, children are found begging in each nook and corner in the city.

Along with these injuries, they are now under more dangerous zone. They are being the targeted of sex abuse even. This type of anti-social activity is not only hampering the social status but also tarnishing the fascia of whole of the nation.
Child sexual abuse is an umbrella term describing criminal and civil offenses in which an adult or older adolescent engages in sexual activity with a minor or exploits a minor for the purpose of sexual gratification. In addition to direct sexual contacts child sexual abuse also occurs when an adult indecently exposes their genitalia to a child, asks or pressures a child to engage in sexual activities, displays pornography to a child, or uses a child to produce child pornography.

Effects of child sexual abuse include depression, post-traumatic stress, disorder, anxiety, propensity to re-victimization in adulthood and physical injury to the child, among other problems. Sexual abuse by a family member is a form of incest, and can result in more serious and long-term psychological trauma, especially in the case of parental incest.
It has been recorded that approximately 15% to 25% of women and 5% to 15% of men were sexually abused when they were children.

The city is going to be crowded and our child need to be saved from these loopholes. For this, parents should make their child aware of such instances and also make them strong to combat the situations. If accused of such injury, parents should fully support the child and should not make them feel guilty.
Baby kidnapping can also speed up during the game season as the whole of the administration would focus on the success of the games. Hence, parents should not leave them alone to move anywhere.

Before the time overs, government should take steps against child begging. Groups and association running the rackets must be kept behind the iron-locks. These are really a big-dark blot on our identity. Without removing these shame, our effort will be not purely sucsessful.
