Human Beings' fight for their existence has never been so intense, they survived the physical infliction of pain from war weapons but it seems the invasion on their dignity in the form of slavery, forced prostitution, experimental dummy, organ smuggling and so forth has been unprecedented in inflicting the pain and misery in millions and millions of lives across the globe. "Right to Dignified Life" is most probably the beginning and ultimate end of Human Rights Principle. But it is also true that the untold misery of people now days has to do with obliteration of this very basic Human Rights notion, even though people are not made to die they are left with no self-dignity, no voice and no remedy just a mere physical existence, that's all. People are loosing their control over themselves, they don't have control over their own body, work and their movement. And perhaps, all will agree that the most obvious reason is Trafficking in Persons.
