He was addressing the gathering after inaugurating the UGC sponsored two-day national seminar ‘Sambhrama-2011’ conducted by the Department of PG Studies and Research in Social Work, SDM College, Ujire at SDM Naturopathy and Yogic Science College, Ujire.

He said, it is quite clear that only by establishing a dependable system of the international security and peace by technique of distributive justice, the world would be able to eliminate the danger threatening the most essential Human Right- ‘the right to live’ without which all other civil and political rights will be meaningless.

SDM Education Society President Dr D Veerendra Heggade in his presidential remark said, freedom has given equality to the people. Women have come out of the four walls of the house and are earning thousands of rupees independently. We should not limit ourselves to criticise our country, but must encourage the positive changes that have taken place, he said.
After six decades of independence, the new form of inequality is prevalent in Indian society. Migration in search of job has been a major cause of worry. India must create enough employment opportunities to tackle migration problem, he said.

NGOs a boon

There has been an increase in the number of colleges offering social work related courses over the decades in Dakshina Kannada because of globalisation coming to the domain, said Mysore University’s Department of Political Science Professor Muzzafar Assadi. Speaking at the valedictory function of Sambhrama, he said, NGOs becoming the prime sector have helped the social work to become the partner for development projects and democracy. The chances of development in the arena of society as well as industry sector have increased, he added.

Technical sessions based on the theme ‘Human Right Based Approach to Development’ were held for two days.
