On November 20th, Johns Hopkins University’s Hindu Student Council celebrated Universal Children’s Day. This is the day when the United Nations adopted the Convention on the Rights of the Child. This marks an important time when children were given a voice to stand up for themselves and reclaim their rightful place in society. To support this cause, JHU Hindu Students Council created a social media chain of positive messages addressed to children to raise their voices. The Bha
gavad Gita states that children are born divine. By raising awareness and advocating for children’s rights and inspiring them to pursue their desires, we are working together to build a better future for children.
