Shashank Vyas, Aishwarya Sakhuja, Shivin Narang, Rashami Desai and other small screen celebrities talk about child labour in the country
It is very sad. I am surprised, at this time also we talk about 12 June that is World Day Against Child Labour. Its very disappointing to see kids working. We always say that they are the future of our nation. If the kids they work then when they will get time to study. On this note I also want to add the kids those who are working in reality shows and also in fiction shows. This is also called as child labour. People hire them. And parents should understand that this is the age where their child should study and play. They should enjoy their childhood. By making them work for 12 hours means that you snatching their childhood.
What I have learnt is that child labour is because of poverty and lack of alternatives provided by the government and in some cases parents. I feel really very helpless and sad by seeing them like this on roads ,stations and public places.These Children are the future of our country and we can see where it is going.
I guess we all must try to help them along with the government with whatever best we can do.
See obviously its very dis-happening to see children working in their childhood to earn money and feed their tummies. We can easily say that in this age they have to study they should not be working but its just like a vicious circle we are caught in. If they won't work then there is no one to take care of them. They themselves have to work and fulfill their needs. The Government should show them the way to go to school and study and later they can do something that will fulfill their needs to earn money as well.

I really feel very sad when I see young children working on the roads and in factories. This is the time to get education and I really want to do something for their bright future.
It's painful to see kids working at a age where there should be focussing on studies. Government should take strong measures to reduce child labour. Poverty makes them get into this. Strongly there should be action taken in people who push kids into child labour.
Its an offense and every one should know this thing. I caught a guy who had come to work at my home for domestic help had fake birth certificate. When I asked his ID and he confessed that he is under age but working since last two years. I said him bye. So the thing is we have so many Chhotu in our country. We only forcing them to work in underage. Until they are not willing to work hard. you can't force them to study to grow to read to learn things because of poverty and illiteracy. Who would earn bread for them. We can feel pity and can give few bucks helping them. But that's how we are spoiling them. I used to work with NGO have seen lot of child labour. If they wont work then from where they will get money to fulfill their needs. I never got any proper answer.

Child labour is injustice towards chidlren. Everyone should collectively take initiative and not encourage it. Its disheartening to see kids working. Children lose their childhood in the process and that is unacceptable.
Well I don't know have a very mixed reaction towards it because there is so much of poverty also in our country so its all co-related. Because if there is so much of poverty in the country don't you know where you get your next meal and there are people on the road. So then sometimes even little children need to work but overall our Government should take some strict action they should get the kids educated and provide a better life then it would not lead to all this. Because there is so much poverty it leads to child labour and children should have the right to enjoy their childhood. So it all depends on our Government.
