Shri Kailash Satyarthi wins Nobel Peace Prize 2014
Congratulations to Shri Kailash Satyarthi on being awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. The entire nation is proud of his momentous achievement. Shri Kailash Satyarthi has devoted his life to a cause that is extremely relevant to entire humankind. I salute his determined efforts.
We are not there to fight against each other or prove something!! Nobel prize name is sufficient to explain the achievement for which both India & Pakistan are happy today!
Intelligence has nothing to do with country or region…We should be & we are happy for Kailash Satyarthi and Malala Yousafzai who got Nobel Peace Prize!!
Talent is always recognized by other nations, why not by our leaders and by our government.
Satyarthi serves on the board and committee of several international organisations including the Center for Victims of Torture , the International Labor Rights Fund and the International Cocoa Foundation. He is now reportedly working on bringing child labour and slavery into the post-2015 development agenda for the United Nation’s Millenium Development Goals. He along with Pakistani girl activist Malala Yousufzai is awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 2014 for their struggle against the suppression of children and young people and for the right of all children to education.
I salute the relentless crusader of child rights and his organisation, the Bachpan Bachao Andolan (BBA) that has been in the campaigning the drive against child labour in India for years. I loved his comments … “I have been very strongly advocating that poverty must not be used as an excuse to continue child labour. It perpetuates poverty. If children are deprived of education, they remain poor.”
What did Kailash Satyarthi say after winning the Nobel Peace prize?
“I am thankful to the Nobel committee for recognising the plight of millions of children who are suffering in this modern age. It is a huge honour for me,” said Satyarthi, who became the second Indian to win the award after Mother Teresa who won it in 1979.
Satyarthi, who is an avid follower of Gandhian philosophy, however, said he would have been happier if the award had gone to the Father of the Nation.
“I was born after the death of Mahatma Gandhi. If the prize had gone to Mahatma Gandhi before me, I would have been more honoured. I am really honoured. This award is for all the citizens of the country,” he said.
