Human rights are designated for fortification of human race. These rights emerged as a protective shield against the act of torture, injustice, and violation of the Natural rights of the human beings. Philosopher, Humanist, Audrey Hepburn said that, People, even more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed and redeemed. Human rights ensure"Protection of the inherent dignity and that of the equal and inalienable rights of all members of the human family including women. It is a well-recognized principle that human rights are those natural rights, which are available to human being "by birth. Thus, the centrality of human rights is the dignity of the individual, liberty and equality of status and to make them more meaningful they are woven around the right to education, health, shelter, congenial environment without discrimination as basics to unity and fraternity among the people Civil and Political rights, Social, Economic and Cultural rights have been elaborated to feed and give a wider content to the Human Rights. Thus, Universal Declaration of Human Rights urges the member Nations to treat these rights as part of the "foundation of freedom, justice and peace in the world".
