The inhuman practice of employing children in many industries is prevailing in most areas in the southern part of India. Though the government takes ample steps to bring them under their control, yet problems exist in different places.For instance, most jewelers make use of the soft and delicate fingers of the children in making their silver ornaments especially the anklets where “fineness’ is needed. The jewelers cash on the patience of the children to cut through silver and design out anklets. They work in hundreds round the clock. Behind every anklet that shines lies a heart of sorrow and suffering.But recently the officials of the labor department met the manufacturers and they came forwarded to denounce the social scourge. The highlight now is that most of these children are sent to schools.
