All that glitters is not gold: bangle-making units still use small hands 13.5.2018 General News
They sat crouched for hours by a burner, inhaling toxic fumes while their deft fingers picked up and moulded the ends of glittering bangles. No longer, though. Dev Pratap Singh, 23, formerly a child worker in a bangle-making unit, is a clay artiste who recently delivered a TEDx talk. Manoj Shankhwar, 24, is a BJP councillor in a municipal ward, and a noted singer and orator. The two were rescued and rehabilitated by NGO ChildFund. And they, in turn, seek to free children forced into labour in this bangle-making town, help them join schools and make a mark in diverse fields. We make every effort to ensure that children go to school and are not dragged into child labour, said Shankhwar. It's going to be a long haul. Years after child labour was banned, the small Uttar Pradesh town still survives on the strength of the little fingers that make bangles. Among the children hard at work is 11-year-old Anshul, who breaks into a smile when this correspondent approaches him in one of ...
