Today is a very special day for India. Kailash Satyarthi, who runs the Bachpan Bachao Andolan, was announced the Nobel Peace Prize. Although she shared the award with Malala Yusufzai of Pakistan, it gave international recognition to her work for child rights in India.

Kailash Satyarthi was born on 11 January 1954 in Vidisha, Madhya Pradesh. Kailash Satyarthi, an electronic engineer by profession, left his career at the age of 26 and started working for children. He campaigned against child labor and saved thousands of children’s lives.

He has also been the President of the Global March Against Child Labor. Satyarthi has been attacked many times during child labor rescue. She was attacked in 2011 during a raid on a textile factory in Delhi and in 2004 for rescuing child artists from the Great Roman Circus.

Prior to Nobel, he has received several national and international awards, including The Aikner International Peace Award in Germany in 1994, Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights Award in 1995, the Medal of Italian Senate in 2007, and the Defenders of Democracy Award in America in 2009.

1967: Outer Space Treaty implemented

Outer Space Treaty is also called Outer Space Treaty in Hindi. The treaty took place on 27 January 1967 between the US, Soviet Union, and Britain and was done to prevent the use of nuclear weapons in outer space. 105 countries have signed the agreement. It came into force on 10 October 1967.

According to the terms of the Treaty approved by the UN General Assembly in December 1966, no country has the right to outer space. All countries have complete freedom of space research. All countries signing this treaty can only use the outer space for peace-related activities. Military centers will not be established in any way on the moon and other planets.

1964: First Olympic Games begin in Asia.

The first Olympics in Asia began in Tokyo in 1964 on 10 October. Born on August 6, 1945, Hiroshima-born Yoshinori Sakai was chosen to light a torch to commemorate the horrors of the Second World War. A nuclear bomb was thrown at Hiroshima on 6 August 1945. The Tokyo Olympics were the first Olympics to be broadcast in the US and Europe using satellite. For the first time, the color broadcasting of some sports could begin.
