...papers today ALL have pictures of children earning bread. Every front page seems to have something to retort to the new ruling on Child Labour.
I had this (only vaguely related) cartoon saved up.
I'm not sure how effective the ruling will be, but I still feel the bigger issue is primary education. I'd imagine that the almighty mai-baap government could tackle a variety of issues from reservations in colleges to child labour if they did something effective about primary education at a grass-roots level. And when I say 'tackle', I mean 'solve', not 'win short term brownies'. Of course, primary education might not be as strong a vote-bank move as reservations. Which, I guess, is the sad part.
