Right of Recognition and Appreciation

The Constitution of India had laid out the Fundamental Rights that have been classified under the six categories to protect the interests of the citizens of the country as a whole-

1. Right to Equality (Articles. 14-18)

2. Right to Freedom (Articles. 19-22)

3. Right Against Exploitation (Articles. 23-24)

4. Right to Freedom of Religion (Articles. 25- 28)

5. Cultural and Educational Rights (Articles. 29-30), and

6. Right to Constitutional Remedies (Articles. 32-35).

It prohibits discrimination on the grounds of religion, race, caste, sex, or place of birth. It also forbids trafficking of human beings and forced labor. These rights have protected the interests of citizens in every way possible but  it has neglected to preserve the right of rewards to poor in terms of recognition and appreciation (i.e. Right of Recognition and Appreciation)

We all are aware of the fact that there are huge disparities between the rich and the poor from ages. Such disparities have built an unconnected bridge between the rich and the poor. Business classes, industrialists, politicians, professionals are rich people, whereas the labourers denote the weaker and poor section of the society. Rich people have always taken the credit of any social, economic, and political success and progress in the country by snatching recognition of the amount of hard work, dedication, blood, and sweat put up by the poor. Poor get rewarded for these sacrifices in the form of minimum wages. They are not backed by any support to acquire the sense of promotion as it is a matter of opulence. They just want their necessities to be fulfilled with no other aspiration. Such ungrateful behavior of our towards them renders a sense of failure.

We should not forget the famous quote by Sophocles.

 “Without labor, nothing prospers.”


Whenever we see a skyscraper or monuments, we always appreciate the wall, ceilings, marbles, and paint without recognizing the efforts of labour. This disregard towards labours is not a present issue but it has remained unaddressed since ages. For instance:

The Taj Mahal is the jewel of Muslim art in India and one of the universally admired masterpieces of the world’s heritage. The Taj Mahal was built by the  Mughal emperor Shah Jahan (reigned 1628–58) to immortalize his wife Mumtaz Mahal (“Chosen One of the Palace”). The Taj Mahal is distinguished as the finest example of Mughal architecture, a blend of Indian,Persian, and Islamic styles. It is also one of the world’s most iconic monuments, visited by millions of tourists each year. The Certificate of appreciation is always given to Shah Jahan for building this monument. But the lesser we acknowledged the hard work put up by the laborers. During its construction, more than 20,000 workers toiled virtually around the clock to complete the same. It is quite likely that some died during this period, but their names were not recorded. Every time the glimpses of the Taj Mahal reminiscent the love story of Shah Jahan & his beloved wife. We have neglected the labourer’s hard work and sacrifice.

Taj Mahal

Each Year the first of May has been marked as International Workers’ Day, also known as Labor Day in India to pay tribute to the contribution of labourers. It has no significance until we give them a sense of recognition and appreciation for their work and sacrifice. The day when we say that The Taj Mahal was built up by hard-working labourers that were owned by Shah Jahan will be the day when we would have given them actual tribute by laying  out Right of Recognition and Appreciation
