Our nation maintains peace, our administration works smoothly and our people stay within their boundaries for the fact that we have certain laws in place. If we don’t have these laws, then the whole world would be in chaos.
Have you ever thought of a world without any rules, protocols or procedures in place? Just Google it, you will find enough instances of a chaotic world.
Another truth bomb, these laws are administered by renowned dignitaries, the learned men of the nation. However, if we consider a child’s mind, which is just so fresh and pristine, we can get to understand a totally different perspective. These perspectives matter for us to understand what could be the need of the hour.
