Event: CHILDREN'S DAY 2018
Date: 14th November 2018.
Place 1: A Government School in Manoharpur Village, Agra.
Place 2: A slum in Karmyogi, Agra.
On the ocassion of Children's Day, I decided to go to a government school early morning in a village nearby, kids understood why is this particular day celebrated as Children's day, played alot of outdoor games, had sweets, pens and pencils were given as takeaway gifts and talked their hearts out ❤
In the evening, i went to a slum nearby where kids gather for evening classes by some youngsters teaching them selflessly, however today was a no-padhai day only lots and lots of games and sweets!
It was a good day with lots of smiles and heartwarming gestures.
I encourage more and more youth of agra to take out time on weekends and national holidays for the benefit of the society.

Jeremiah Ray Swafford came into this world on March 17th, 2006 to parents Kathy Swafford and James Thomas. In 2008, Kathy meets a new man called Dwight and they entered a serious relationship, both Kathy and Dwight had criminal records, despite this Kathy, Jeremiah and Dwight were able to live together. Dwight became abusive to both Kathy and Jeremiah but despite this Kathy didn’t leave him or report him to the police. On December 19th, 2008, Jeremiah’s father calls social services and reports that he suspects Jeremiah is being abused, he said that the child’s grandmother informed him that Dwight had beaten his son and he had a black eye and bruises all over him. He also said that Kathy wanted to sign over his parental rights so that Dwight could adopt Jeremiah. An officer was dispatched to the house and reported that Jeremiah was fine. On December 30th, Jeremiah went to hospital with bruises and Taser marks all over his body, however, officers at the hospital reported he was playing and seemed okay, an x-ray found no injuries though he did have a bruise on his genitals. But Kathy reported that this was due to previous catheter insertion. In 2009, whilst being treated for a sore throat a physician notes a resolving facial bruise under Jeremiah’s eye.

NOT SO CHILDREN’S DAY.
While we celebrate children’s day there are children who don’t know it even exists.
Sometime around Feb this year I happened to visit this place called GIllisugur camp (Raichur district) which is on the Hyderabad - Karnataka region. This is supposed to be the most backward region in all of Karnataka.
These beautiful child are all victims of child labor. They were once forced to work in extremely dangerous mines for minimal daily wage. Some of them worked as daily wage workers in farms,shops, factories and don’t even get me started about the darker side of the world they’ve had to witness.
They are being rehabilitated by an NGO called INGRID. They are small scale non profit working around this issue for over 20 years. They help these children with bridge courses and provide them with free food & accommodation. Post the course completion they rejoin them to school.
Well, I’ve celebrated children’s day all through my schooling. I’m sure you have too. But what about children who got succumbed into child labor?
Did you remembered your first menstruation??
How did you learn about taking care of yourself or use of sanitary pads???
Mother's should talk to the girls about puberty and changes that occurs in their bodies..
Father's should talk to the boys about puberty and changes that occurs in their bodies..
Don't leave these teachings to teachers in school or caregivers or social media..

All these conversations will create intimacy and bond between you and your kids..

It's crazy how the brain works for real!!! Especially the injured brain...🤕 I mean I can't remember what I did or said 5 minutes ago yet I can look at this picture of me as a child and remember that exact day in detail!! It's like watching a movie play in slow motion...A really f🌟🌟king bad movie!! 📽🎬🐌🐌🐌 I was sitting at the dining room table and crazy Janice (Mommy Dearest) had locked my sperm donor (Neither one of them deserve the title parent) out as she had recently thrown him out after finding out about his 8 year "fling" with his secretary...👱♂️💥🔫 All of a sudden there was a loud 🌟🌟BOOM🌟🌟 as he kicked the back door of its hinges!! I remember them arguing about him wanting some of our family photo albums which she wasn't having any of it! So being the nut job that she was, she gathered up all of the family albums and threw them on the table, she then proceeded to rip up every single picture we had ever taken...🖼😔 Holidays & Birthdays...Every special photo worthy occasion, all of our family history maliciously destroyed in record time... See that chain around my neck? It was a silver locket he had just bought for me so that I could keep his picture inside, she ripped it from my neck and threw it at him...😢 I of course being a 6 year old little girl was absolutely heartbroken...💔 But she didn't care, it was all about them and never about me... Selfish bastards...😠 Nope they definitely never won any awards for the best parents...💏👈😂 They however won several for psychological abuse of a minor...🤦🏼♀️💔👫🏻💥🔫 Shame on them!!😡 Thank God I broke the cycle....👭💘 Think about your actions before you fight & argue in front of your kids, it has LIFE long detrimental effects on them...🤦♂️💔🤦🏼♀️ Even with an injured brain...🤕 I remember ALL of the bad bits....😔 Communicate before you retaliate!! Children are like little sponges, they absorb everything!! The good, the bad and the damn right selfish & sad...🙁 (Exert from my autobiography As Yet Untitled...)

To the children of the future:
I want you to know your value
You are worthy and never let anyone tell you any different
You are not better or worse than anyone else
We are all created equal
You can be anything you want to be, and if you doubt it, just look up at the stars and scream to the universe and tell the angels how bad you want it
They are always listening
Write your dreams down and believe in them
Believe in yourself
If you have a passion or a hobby stick with it and never let anyone tell you you can’t do it
Anything is possible
Be brave, be bold, be kind
Don’t let school stand in the way of your education
Dream bigger than you can imagine because you can make anything possible
You are the creator of your own universe
You shine brighter than all the stars combined
You are divine, you are wonderful and you are pure potential
You are loved and are always surrounded by love
I love you all

Children's Day... My inbox is flooded with wishes, but seriously are the TV, internet and education system letting a kid be a kid? One-half of the kids are battling malnutrition while the other half has health issues due to improper lifestyle and eating habits and early onset of puberty.
Every parent is busy dressing up their kids prettily and smartly today, who is addressing their pretty hearts and smart minds?
Let your kids be kids. Let them get dirty, experiment, experience things, hurt, climb, cry, laugh loud and remain innocent.
In fact, let go of all expectations and turn into a kid today for them and enjoy the day doing all the stuff you enjoyed as a kid with them and see the miracle happen.
Help support this wonderful young lady achieve her goal to complete her education. She’s very hard working, smart and driven. She will be a great addition to the Psychiatric field.
A 24-year-old man, Osamudiamen Amayo was remanded in prison by an Egor Magistrate court sitting in Benin on Monday, November 12, for allegedly having canal knowledge with a boy of 9 years.
The incident happened around Medical Stores road, Benin City. Luck ran out of the suspect when the mother of the victim started noticing strange behaviour of her son and the incremental lose of weight.
Upon further probe, the victim told his mother how Osamudiamen had incessantly had canal knowledge with him with threats to kill him and the mother if he discloses what happens between them to anybody.
The matter was reported to Edo Civil Society Organisations, who took it up and the suspect was arrested by the police and investigation was initiated and later charged to court. The suspect was reminded in prison without bail conditions and case adjourned to 6th of December, 2018.
According to Leftist Osazee Edigin, the Public Relations Officer, Edo Civil Society Organisations: "It should be noted that, a lot of children are faced with threat by these paedophiles who take advantage of their feeble minds to defile them by having canal knowledge of same. Many parents/guardians have equally failed in doing discrete checks on their children or wards." #childabuse#benincity#paedophile#savethechildren#notochildmolestation #
