The most innocent phase in human life is the childhood. It
is that stage of life when the human foundations are laid
for a successful adult life. It is the phase when we are
carefree, fun-loving, learning, playing etc….
This is the true story of child labour. There are industries
and individuals, who employee young innocent children. They
put them to work under grueling circumstances. They make
them work for long hours weaving delicate threads to make
the world’s most expensive carpets. They make them work in
dangerous factory units manufacturing fireworks. They make
children carry load even heavier than their own body weight.
They beat them and physically torture when they make a
mistake. They starve them and give them their children’s
worn out clothes.
And a large number of employed children do not even live to
see their teenage years.
Poverty and lack of education are the two primary reasons
for the every-growing social malice of child labour. Parents
in the poverty zone of society give birth to money-making
machines, and not children. They carry infants to earn more
on the streets from begging. Then as they grow they make
them beggars, and eventually sell them to employers.
