Select Page Child Labour in India Children are always considered next to the pious versions of the Almighty who always strive to inculcate happiness, joy, innocence and hope.

Not to forget that these are the figures in an account, and the actual number may be higher. More than any other country. Imagine your child working in a construction site in scorching heat picking up bricks. There are million people [ accounted ] in India, under poor conditions.
These families have a scarcity of resources and may be forced to have all members to work for wages. But, when the child take even a single holiday to say due to catarrh Shardi then that Rooti is not cooked on that bricks and wood in their poor huts.
All the rainwater is in their huts how and who and when will that water be taken out from their huts? Have we ever thought that?
No, because we are least concerned so why do we think? But this is the indigestible everyday truth of Indian streets. Children below the age of 14 cannot be employed anywhere, except in non-hazardous family enterprises or the entertainment industry, advertisement, films, television or sports activities, except the circus.

Here my family is financially not standing and after walking a miles if I send my child to school for higher education, and that too not free and without any warranty-guaranty that my child will earn enough because one side there are screams of unemployment for those who had already been well educated then how can I hope for a better job for my child who will be getting only primary education and for more I have to pay.
