Letter 

To, 

The District Collector,

 ABC District

         Sub: Redressal required for violation of my Right to Equality 

Dear Sir/Madam,

I, XYZ wished to inform you that my admission for pursuing a course leading to the MBA degree in a college in your district has been refused. It was done by a clerk of the college who remarked that "You, the son of a sweeper, wish to be a manager! Has anyone done this job in your community? Go to the municipality office and apply for a sweeper's position". This is a total violation of my rights and it is unfair. I am fully qualified to apply for the course having completed my graduation.

 Kindly look into the matter at the earliest.

  Thanking You,

                                                                                                                                                       Sincerely,

                                                                                                                                                            XVZ

Question 8

When Madhurima went to the property registration office, the Registrar told her. "You can't write your name as Madhurima Banerjee d/o Α. K. Banerjee. You are married, so you must give your husband's name. Your husband's surname is Rao. So your name should be changed to Madhurima Rao." She did not agree. She said "If my husband's name has not changed after marriage, why should mine?" In your opinion who is right in this dispute? And why?

Solution 8

In this dispute, Madhurima is correct. She is entitled to right to equality and therefore she can choose to use either her maiden name or her husband's surname. Forcing her to use to her husband's surname will result in infringement of her right.

Question 9

Thousands of tribals and other forest dwellers gathered at Piparia in Hoshangabad district in Madhya Pradesh to protest against their proposed displacement from the Satpura National Park, Bori Wildlife Sanctuary and Panchmarhi Wildlife Sanctuary. They argue that such a displacement is an attack on their livelihood and beliefs. Government claims that their displacement is essential for the development of the area and for protection of wildlife. Write a petition on behalf of the forest dwellers to the NHRC, a response from the government and a report of the NHRC on this matter.

Solution 9

As the answers may vary, please attempt this question on your own with the help of your subject teacher or elders.

Question 10

Draw a web interconnecting different rights discussed in this chapter. For example right to freedom of movement is connected to the freedom of occupation. One reason for this is that freedom of movement enables a person to go to place of work within one's village or city or to another village, city or state. Similarly this right can be used for pilgrimage, connected with freedom to follow one's religion. Draw a circle for each right and mark arrows that show connection between or among different rights. For each arrow, give an example that shows the linkage.
