Nawalparasi, Nepal: Thousands of children around the world are deprived of the love and affection they need from their parents, and some children have no parents at all. Some of the children are living on the sidewalks and selling their labor in different places and are forced to go from house to house begging for livelihood.
Similarly, Bishal Harijan, a resident of Sarawal Rural Municipalitym Ward No. 2 of West Nawalparasi, Nepal is also one of them. Badri Harijan, the father of 14-year-old Bishal Harijan died while he was in his mother’s womb. He is studying in class 8 of Janata High School Manari. At present, only Bishal Harijan’s mother is at home. Born into a poor family, Bishal Harijan has had a hard time making ends meet. Even the house where he lives is on other’s land.
The lone son of the late Badri Harijan and Igalasi Harijan, Bishal Harijan excels in growth and is also a painter, dancer and skilled sculptor. He had recently made a Durga idol on Bijaya Dashami and kept it in his house. Bishal Harijan, who is packed of various arts and knowledge at an early age, said that it would be easy if the local government and the government of Nepal have built them for own houses provided land for them to settle down.
While reading, writing and playing at such a young age, Bishal said that he is forced to continue his studies by working, and making a living. Bishal had said that he would go to work with his mother and study as well.
Today’s children are only limited to the slogan of being the leader of the community, where various child rights programs and planning are only in papers. In fact, the main reason why children are still deprived of their rights is not able to study and operate any of the treaties, conventions, policies, rules and laws operated by the government.
Does the local government do anything to exhibit out the art knowledge inside Bishal Harijan’s and solve his problems? Will Bishal Harijan’s dream come true? This question is getting complicated itself.
The right of children to live freely, to develop, the right to participate and the right to protection have not yet been fully facilitated by the Government of Nepal. Article 39 of the Constitution of Nepal states that children have the right to name and birth with their identity but things are only virtual.
