How old would she be? Less than ten right? Well, she clips off grass and bushes from the lawn before the Adina Mosque of Maldah so that tourists can visit the mosque unhindered. In our country, Child Labour Act prohibits the employment of children below the age of 14 years in hazardous occupations identified in a list by the law. I'm struggling to fool myself with the notion that a sickle in a child's hand can't be hazardous at all. Shame on Indian Government and shame on us!

He has been blogging since 2007, and the pen often runs out of ink, but thankfully the mystic spirit of traveling-clicking-storytelling always reconquers Anunoy before it gets too late! In his early childhood, Anunoy’s craving for backpacking was sowed by his father. He has been a rolling stone ever since, forming passionate bonds with motorcycle touring and photography to add more layers to his wander lust. Between see-sawing a small family and a thankless job, Anunoy Samanta manages to run his own photography cum travel blog- Clicking Photos on the Go. You may catch up with Anunoy through Facebook or Twitter.
