In this episode, Radio Dwarka invited Anil Kumar Parashar to its studio. Born and brought up in the Capital, he has bachelor's degrees in commerce and law and diplomas in human rights, international humanitarian and refugee law, and disaster preparedness and rehabilitation. Parashar had been and is still associated with the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC).
"I started my career with the Punjab Small Industries Corporation in Chandigarh way back in 1978. I moved to the Supreme Court and worked there for ten years, and in the National Consumer Commission for two years and in 1993 came to NHRC. I worked with the human rights body till 2016, and I am still associated with it."
His family has roots in Punjab, Pakistan, and came to Delhi, India, after Partition. "Whatever I am today is because of my parents," he said.
It was the Chief Justice of India, who had entrusted him with coordinating for a book, Human Rights in the Changing World, even before he started working for NHRC.
"When we talk of rights, we must also remember our duties. There needs to be a balance between rights and responsibilities," he said.
NHRC has jurisdiction across the country, except Jammu and Kashmir; 24 states have their human rights commission, he told.
The awareness level has seen a rise over the years. "There were 496 complaints when I had joined NHRC and today there is more than a lakh such issues that come to the human rights body for resolution."
He also doled out a couple of advice to resolve issues of the elderly citizens. He seemed perturbed with rampant encroachment and lawlessness in Dwarka. He offered his services to people if they had issues of human rights.
His wife and daughter are teachers in Dwarka while elder brother retired as Colonel in the Army. His younger brother passed away recently, and his family is settled today.
"The erosion of family values is a disturbing trend. My father used to earn Rs 109 in 1947 but used to take care of a family of 39 members. Today my wife and I earn more than Rs 2 lakh per month, but there's no contentment still," he said.
