The author, Vaishali Rathore, is academically nurtured with a Bachelor’s (Honors) in Political Science from University of Delhi and Masters in Law (LLM) in Criminology. Her intrinsic solicitude towards the ‘Juveniles’ and knowledge of law have propelled her to carry out researches on the children who are facing social and legal  challenges either as  delinquents or as children in need of care and protection by studying their psycho-social conditions and the related legal provisions. She aspires to contribute to the enrichment and upliftment of the budding future of society. She is an ardent believer in the lines quoted by Nelson Mandela: “The children must, at last, play in the open veld, no longer tortured by the pangs of hunger or ravaged by the disease or threatened with the scourge of ignorance, molestation and abuse, and no longer required to engage in deeds whose gravity exceeds the demands of their tender years”.
