In the wake of human development, over the decades, changes have been the only constant. In that effort the need and requirement to review human rights through varied lenses has taken a centre stage. Started with understanding the essence of identifying human rights and necessity to clothe the human civilization by recognising their basic rights being humans to understand the hegemonical requirement of recognising it in a very vivid manner has become one invincible part in the developmental pace of International and National human rights regime. Among the multiple strata identified in this task, the one who were always needed to be addressed primarily are, children. Though the global community has been quite instrumental in enabling children with a canopy of laws and international instruments in the broader domain of human rights over the time; it is really surprising to still witness that the globe is not yet free of child abuse, sexual exploitation of minors, non-sensitised approach towards their identity or even providing a constructive definition many times. Delving deeper, it has been found that, in many such cases these manhandling goes out of slightest notice to be addressed seriously in later days. These are issues of are utter prominence across the Globe and every Nation-State in some or the extent are succumbed to these issues which revolves around one of the most vulnerable communities of the world. The present article will primarily deal with the niche areas of how the identification, determination, stratification and assimilation of the issues mentioned above have been addressed by the Human Rights regime over the time by some of the chief International Global Organisations and predominantly in India. The article is divided in five parts to deal with the understanding of the delineated concepts first and then would deal in detail with the legal aspects and varied approaches and experiences gathered over the time of interpreting modern human rights regime on the identified issues in 21st Century.
