Let Our Children Guide Us On The Path To Sustainable Development Goals

"We have beautiful hearts and hopes and want to soar in the sky," said Nisha Das, a girl with disability from a Kolkata slum. It was July 2013, and she was talking at the 67th UN General Assembly's Thematic Debate on Reducing Inequality. Nisha was speaking on behalf of millions of India's children whose dreams had not been met by the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). Three years later, India needs to revise its priorities to align with the Sustainable Development Goals launched at the 70th session of the UN General Assembly.
