And that is what is so sad...
Hmmm...am a mute spectator.
This is... oh, I just want to cry! Keep on writing like this, Mamta, keep on telling us what you actually see. Even if some people prefer to act like there were blind. Tragical and extremely efficient writing! I know you write marvellous poems on 'nice' subjects, too. That´s what poets are for... always trying to tell what they experience... no matter what ...
'No sparkle in eyes.' tells a lot about child labourers. CP
leave alone selling..down south these crackers are made mostly by young girls...may be today we have a rule..i insist on the birth cert to see if they are more than 18 when i appoint some one in the factory..abroad it seems worse..my little daughter studying in UK is waiting to turn 14 to take up a part time job..the extra money to spend...in india it is not that...and the safety standards and treatment is definitely better there
