Child Labour


Child Labour is employment of children under age in certain occupation and processes.
I took picture of this because i am against some Child Labour (military use, prostitution, etc). But i am not sure whether he is helping his parents or family. But Wikipedia states "Child labor can be factory work, mining or quarrying, agriculture, helping in the parents' business, having one's own small business (for example selling food), or doing odd jobs." Sweepers are seen every morning, some work at midnight when the streets are free. I've come across several kids sweeping the street. Poor family often result in child labour. I don't blame every parents of such child doing such work. India is a developing country and Mizoram is among them. In Mizoram, helping parents/relatives is a good deed. Instead we always appreciate it.
So, upto which level/stage is Child Labour in Mizoram?
