SOCIAL NORMS AND CHILD MARRIAGE I have always asked myself, as well as some of the girls who are returning to school - "If marriage is a matter of choice?" COVID-19, is just a new addition, among a variety of other existing, circulating unchecked and unopposed, anti-civilization agents since time immemorial, which threatens and feeds upon the centuries-old strong social fabric among humans. All this started exactly a month back when the whole world was celebrating International Women's Day.

In India alone, there are more than 355 million females who menstruate. Across the country, so many of them face several barriers with regards to menstrual hygiene.

Literacy and education of the population of a country is indicator of the progress the country has made. But we actually measured the growth of a country by flyovers or shopping malls that have been built. Education is a important part of our lives, for every child it should be our first priority. We all know that growth of any society or community depends only if the people are educated and aware. Right to Education Act in India: The Constitution (Eighty-sixth Amendment) Act, 2002 inserted Article 21-A in the Constitution of India to provide free and compulsory education of all children in the age group of six to fourteen years as a Fundamental Right in such a manner as the State may, by law, determine.
