CHILD LABOUR!!!WHY WE ARE FAILING TIME AND AGAIN??

I WAS TRAVELING RECENTLY AND CAME ACROSS A KID (8-10 YEARS OLD) IN TRAIN WHO WAS DOING BOOT POLISH FOR Rs.5. A MAN STANDING NEAR BY CALLED HIM IN THE MOST DISRESPECTFUL MANNER HE COULD. STEPPING HIS RIGHT FOOT FORWARD HE INDICATED THAT HE WANTED TO GET HIS BOOT POLISHED. I WAS NOT IN THE MOOD TO APPRECIATE THAT SITUATION. I MOVED AWAY INITIALLY TO AVOID SEEING ANY OF THIS BUT I COULDN’T. WHEN HE COMPLETED POLISHING SHOES HE WAS HANDED OVER Rs. 10 BY THE MAN AND HE STARTED SEARCHING HIS POCKET FOR REST OF THE MONEY TO PAY HIM BACK. IT WAS AN EARLY MORNING OF THE LAST WEEK OF DECEMBER. WE WERE NEARING A HILL STATION AND THE CHILD WAS WEARING ONLY A LOWER ON HIS BODY WHILE MOST OF THE PASSENGERS OF THE TRAIN WERE EITHER SLEEPING TIGHTLY WEARING THE MOST COLD RESISTANT CLOTHES OR WERE SHIVERING DUE TO COLD. I THINK IT WAS DUE TO  THE SAME THAT HE DIDN’T WANT TO STAND UP, SO HE CONTINUED SEARCHING HIS TWO POCKETS FOR REST OF THE TIME BY SEATING ONLY. THE ALREADY HALF HEARTED MAN, WHO WAS WEARING A SWEATER , HAND GLOVES AND BLANKET OVER HIS BODY, WAS NOT AWARE OF THIS PROBLEM COULD ONLY SEE HIS Rs. 5 AND THE NEARING OF TRAIN TOWARDS STATION. THE VERY NEXT MOMENT HE SHOUTED THE LITTLE KID TO STAND UP SO THAT HE COULD GET HIS MONEY BACK AS FAST AS HE COULD HEARING WHICH MANY OF THE TRAVELERS WOKE UP ONLY TO GO BACK TO SLEEP AS IF NOTHING HAPPENED. WHILE THE CHILD WAS GETTING DOWN I TOOK HIS HAND INTO MINE SO THAT I CAN PASS HIM Rs. 5 FOR WHICH HE WAS STRUGGLING SO MUCH IN THIS COLD BARE BODIED. I DON’T KNOW WHETHER I WAS WRONG OR RIGHT BUT WHEN I SEE CHILDREN IN SUCH SITUATIONS I SEE ONLY THE COUNTRY’S WORST FUTURE. IT IS NOT A  SIMPLE STORY….BUT IT IS ACTUALLY MUCH MORE THEN THAT. IT IS FAILURE OF GOVERNMENT TO PROVIDE FOR STUDENTS….IT IS FAILURE FOR THE EDUCATED YOUTH OF THIS NATION TO BRING THOSE KIDS TO ANY NEAR BY SCHOOLS

PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU LEAVE COMMENT ON WHAT SHOULD BE DONE (NOT FROM THE HOPELESS GOVERNMENT BUT BY US) ON THIS SITUATIONS?

OR

FROM WHERE WE SHOULD START DOING THINGS THAT WILL MAKE SURE THAT EVERY CHILD OF THIS NATION CAN GET TO SCHOOL?
