When we see small, impressionable kids serving us tea and snacks in restaurants, dhabas, and other way side eateries, seldom, if eve, does anyon of us pause and confront the owner with the question as to why is the kid present in his hotel instead of being in a classroom. Likewise, unnecessary honking, driving beyond a specified speed is also a legal offence, but does any one bother. And if anyone is caught, he gets the punishment of an Alistair Perriera and goes practically scott free for killin the innocents. Everything, here, is purchasable.

The so called intellectuals have formed and introduced the Child Labour Act. They are doing this sitting in the A.C. rooms and they do not know theactual way of living of the poor. The parents will not generally feel happy with their urchins doing hard work and sufferring. But empty stomack is the worst politicians. Besides their going to work themselves, they also allow their children to do some work and get some money home so that they can eat food atleast one time in a day. The so called officials suddenly visit the spot where these children are working, and send word to media to publish that they have rescued so many children from the bonded labour system. O.K. Then ? They leave those children as it is and never care abut what they will do for their food for the next day. Obviously the children so rescued will go back to his masters and be prepared to work again for less wages than what was he getting till then.

Every illigal thing in India starts from our corrupt politicians who pass full five years in earning money keeping all social aspects aside.
