We as human beings live in the society having a governance mechanism which is under the control of the State. The State has provided us with certain rights by virtue of different Statutes out of which one of the most important is the Fundamental Rights as guaranteed by the Indian Constitution. But the concept of Human Rights differs as they are not provided by someone rather, they exist since our birth. They are not guaranteed by any State as these are universal rights inherited by all human beings because they exist as human beings irrespective of race, sex, religion, nationality, ethnicity, language, status etc. This does not mean that these rights are not protected by the State rather the State is under an obligation to protect the human rights of each individual and to aid in case of violation of the same. The Universal Declaration of Human Rights aims to provide the basic rights to human beings which is necessary for their survival. Good Governance is considered as an essential feature for a developing nation or state. Good Governance results in overall human development which directly aids in development of a Nation at large.
