Child labor – Silent killing of dreams

Today morning, this thought came through a conversation with a friend. And yes it made me think a lot. I looked at my daughters, i can’t imagine my ten-year-old taking care of a baby and doing household stuff.
Whenever child labor comes to our mind..we think of kids carrying bricks, working in a factory, etc.. but there is another silent killing happening in the name of ‘nannies’.
Ever thought about those kids, who are brought from their native place, in the name of a better life, and given just a meager amount in the name of the job.  Interestingly these are just kids, real kids whom i can’t imagine doing all these nanny jobs as well as household chores.
And what do they get… Only a pair of old clothes or maybe their family gets something like some amount for giving away their child to lifetime slavery.
Ever thought of educating them…than toiling in these jobs.
What does a better future you promise their parents to look like?
Ever thought about it.
Treat them like your own child, and give them what they deserve.
And be human to them.
