How & Why (IBP) was founded

It all began in the safe and cozy environment of the Padhya family’s Ahemdabad bunglow in the year May 2008. Paratmika was sitting besides her father and watching the news on the TV where the news of Jaipur Bomb blast was being flashed and the TV reported that there could be hands of some of the locals in supporting the terrorists and that the search is on, Paratmika’s father while watching this report vented out the anger by saying that the parents of these terrorists and their supporters should be arrested, to which Paratmika sprung up and reacted to her father that why should the parents be arrested ? what have they done ? It could be that the children of these parents may not be in control and may not be listening to them or simply, they may not themselves be aware of their children’s involvement in such terrorist activities. Parents cannot be punished for wrong doing of their children, we cannot do this, we have to find these terrorists and punish them alone and not their parents or relatives. This immediate response from Paratmika made her father think that she had a point and was in fact right in her thinking, he respected her thought on this and appreciated her point of view and also encouraged her to think positively on such issues.

During February 2009, once again while watching the news, Paratmika asked her father what is IAEA? & what is it all about and why there is all chaos in the parliament on this issue as being shown on TV?

Paratmika’s father explained to her that IAEA (International Atomic Energy Agency) agreement if India signs with international association, then India would get all the support to get new technology to use nuclear energy for peaceful purposes like producing power, but India would then loose it’s right to make any nuclear arms, to this Paratmika reacted by not liking this, her mother also joined the discussion in convincing her that this would be good as all the poor people and all the farmers and industries would get 24 hours power, Paratmika reacted and said, how can we trust our hostile neighbors like Pakistan and China ? They are nuclear power nation and they also have developed nuclear arms, how can we trust them? What about our safety? Imagine the farmer is sitting in his house with Air conditioner on, but all the while thinking that the nuclear bomb can be dropped on him anytime, She said “ Papa give me a candle light, it will do, I do not want this power, I want complete safety, as strong we, can keep our enemies away” To this reaction of Paratmika, her mother changed the side and supported her view that India should not sign the IAEA, her father kept trying to convince her but could not. This incidence gave a thought to Paratmika’s father that these days children also have genuine interest in the national issues and can certainly make positive contributions by putting forward their thoughts.

Recently, Maharashtra assembly elections were concluded, once again, Paratmika was watching the news on the TV with her father where the news flashed that congress – NCP party had won the polls, Paratmika clapped at the news, her father said, there was no need to clap as the same government was in fact responsible for the 26 /11 attacks on Mumbai and wondered why and how people of Maharashtra voted them to power once again? To this Paratmika replied that Maharashtra government alone could not be held responsible, as it was the Indian Navy who was responsible and the Navy is not controlled by the state. She asked by the way whom did her father support? He said BJP, she said she would not support them as the BJP was in favour of POTA kind of law and Congress was against, once again Paratmika’s father observed that as a young child she also had all the right to express her opinion and views and that it is good that she likes to discuss these issues with him and has her own point of view as well, while this was going on Paratmika expressed to her father that she would like to join some political party, her father asked her to look up at the internet on few sites of some of the leading political parties, Paratmika came back saying she searched but only citizens of 18 years and above were eligible to join their party, she got sad that she has no place to discuss and voice her thoughts and opinion now, while encouraging her to continue to think what she likes, the idea of having her own party came up, Paratmika was very much exited and agreed to form her own party, this was the birth of the Indian Baccha Party (IBP) and on 14th November 2009 a formal beginning of the party was made by printing the visiting card as Ms.Paratmika Nishchal Padhya – Founder member & president of IBP. This idea was discussed with family, friends & teachers, they all supported and encouraged the formation of IBP.

Now, this humble and small beginning is open to all the citizens of India to join as the ‘members’ if below the age of 18 years and as the ‘guardians’ if above the age of 18 years in helping shape the future our beloved nation India and making our young citizens of today, coming leaders of tomorrow.

Jai Hind!

Where the mind is without fear and the head is held high

Where knowledge is free

Where the world has not been broken up into fragments

By narrow domestic walls

Where worlds come out from the depth of truth

Where tireless striving stretches its arms towards perfection

Where the clear stream of reason has not lost its way into the dreary desert sand of dead habit

Where the mind is led forward by thee

Into ever-widening thought and action into that heaven of freedom, my Father, let my country awake.

- A poem by Rabindranath Tagore
