Child labour: A social evil

Children are the flowering buds of the country. They should never be misused before their maturity. They have the fullest right to enjoy their life. If children are compelled to be used as labour, will result, demolising of the society. Utmost care has to be taken to stop child labour in every field like hotels, industries, household jobs beggering or any other job which employs child labour, either by enforcement or by persuation.

Even after 62 years of independence from the british rule, the children who are considered as the futures citizines of the country are not allowed to enjoy their valuable childhood. A stage in person's life when he has the fullest right to go by his wishes and transform his dreams and thoughts into reallity are ruined like any thing.

The intensity of government's approach against the social evil is understood but it's not bringing out expected results. Today a large number of families are poverty strucken in India and are giving their least cooperation to make their children educated. They ignore the importance of their child as a citizen rather using them as their economic skelton. This backwardness in the society, if prevailed for a further decade, then surely the dream of our farmer president Dr. A.P. J. Abdul Kalam to see India a super power by 2020 will remain unacomplished.

It's not just for the sake of his dreams that the social evil has to be removed but it's also for the sake of little inquisitive kids who are working at such small age when they are supposed to enjoy their dreams.
What may be actually blamed for the existance of child labour is probably the poor implementation of laws, greeds of the profit earners of the society and inadequate attention from the government. The removal of this evil needs the cooperation of the common people, NGO's, various movement and social group also so that the future of these children could be secured.
