meet kalu.

he lives in suburbs of pune. he is 12 year old, though u cant make it out from the way he talks. he is polite, gentle and very mature. his family on paper is a pernnially sick mother, and a cute sis who is 8 yrs old. his dad was a rickshw puller, who died 3 years back in an accident.

he studies in 5th grade and his sis in 1st. he used to work at sweets shop of bhola guru during evening hours. guru was really nice to him, and besides daily wages, he also help kalu by giving him books, clothes and medicines for his mother.

this was kalu 4 weeks back. happy and satisfied. but now, he is not going to school, because he has to spend time on signals and beg for money. thnx to the ban on child labour. the law just managed to blow his self-respect.
