  1. HUMAN RIGHTS is an important topic in these fast changing times where rich is getting richer and poorer getting more poorer. Wealth is a strength in this world of materialism, and expert Economists predict that within a short time almost one percent of the rich world population will be equivalent to ninety nine percent of the rest. In fact, this is one of the main topic raised as an important issue during the current Election trend in the United States. Human Rights plays an important role when the world is so deeply in involved in our culture, our affluence, our religion and most importantly our race and color. We therefore wish to congratulate Roshni Nilaya to sponsor a Seminar on HUMAN RIGHTS that will create additional awareness of all the dangers ahead of us. One of the most important point that we need to focus is on the importance of Education that will be able to combat all evils and dangers attached to Human Rights. So long as one is capable to achieve the basic Education he or she will automatically understand the intricacies of Human Rights so that with the benefit of Education each and everyone of us can defend ourselves from all external threats on the misuse of Human Rights. Please therefore emphasize the importance of Education in all your messages to the World on Human Rights.
