Abstract: As India completes 58 years of republic on January 26, 2007, it is right time to take stock of children’s situation in the upcoming economic power. Now stock market is rising, companies are showing profits but the recent incident that took place in Nithari, hardly stone throw from capital city of New Delhi has raised several eye browns in human rights circle. Organ trafficking or sexual abuse may account for the disappearance of 38 children from Nithari. Two persons have been arrested for alluring tender age children, sexually abusing them and then murdering them. This case compels all those concerned with social development to rethink about situation of children in India. Dr. John Dayal, the dynamic religious freedom fighter connected with All India Christian Council has issued urgent appeal to review child welfare and protection programme in India.
