Stolen Childhoods, Stolen Dreams!!

Child by Face, Labour by Fate a very touching quote that describes the life of a child who has born to a labour with no age requirement.

Every child is a gift of God and gifts are always nurtured with love, care and affection. Children are the flowers of Heaven and are the most beautiful and purest creation of God on earth. They are innocent both inwardly and outwardly. A specific kind of joy is felt seeing children putting on different types of uniforms and begins to go to schools for the sake of knowledge, but at the same time there are also other children those who cannot go to schools due to financial problems, they only watch others go to schools and can merely wish to seek knowledge. This is due to many hindrances and difficulties that they face in their life.

The term Child Labour means children being forced to work in terrible conditions, for extremely long hours and for very little pay. An effort that deprived off children from their childhood, potential abilities, self-respect and dignity. It leads to physical, mental, moral and social harm to children. Unfortunately, India is sadly to have the largest number of child labour in the world and this position is not an appreciable one. Children are forced to kill their aspirations, dreams and other wishes to earn a living for themselves and for their families. It will be true to say that many children in India play a substantial role for their families without which their families would not be able to make ends meet. Their living conditions are crude and their chances for education are minimal, while other children of the same age are spending a comfortable life without any strain and accountabilities.

Poverty is the main cause of child labour in India. It is a very serious, conspicuous and human right issue for the whole world and especially for India. It is an outcome of a multitude of socio-economic factors few of them are, Lack of social security and opportunities, increasing gap between rich and the poor, high rate of population growth, unemployment, uneven distribution of wealth and resources and plethora of other factors are also the reasons that are giving boom to child labour in India.

According to the credible estimates ranging from 60 to 115 million, India has the largest number of working children in the world. And this number is getting perked up with each passing day. Most of the child laboureres are engaged in agriculture, livestock, foresting, fisheries, stone crushing, brickyards, workshops, factories(especially as weavers), carpet waving, bangles and glass furnaces. They also shine shoes or work as street vendors or domestics, apart from all these there are many more zones in which children are working to make their living.

We can easily imagine that how the nation’s future namely children are deprived of basic needs and pleasures of life, negligence and rejection from the society had reduced their abilities to think right or to differentiate between right and wrong.

Child labor is a very multifaceted issue which demands a range of solutions. There is no other best step to ban this evil than making education compulsory for everyone. We at collective level need to take initiatives to stop this curse from the society. Government should also be needed to take ample steps to root out the child labour from India. Government should take necessary practical steps to educate the children of all classes beyond any discrimination, provide funds to the organization working for the removal of child labour. There should be effective and proper implementations on child protective laws. If we succeed to act upon these principles, our country can easily get rid of this grim and uninviting problem of child Labour.
