Fruit Seller Boys in Coaker's Walk

Fruit Seller Boys in Coaker's Walk
Coaker's Walk is a kilometer long pedestrian path constructed along steep mountain slopes on the southern side of Kodai road located in the popular hill station of Kodaikanal (Tamil Nadu). If the weather is on your side you'll be amazed by the picturesque vista of the valley below. Like we find uncountable wheeler-stalls of fast food in Bengal, fruit selling stalls are similarly in abundance throughout the Nilgiris. Surprisingly a lot of those fruit sellers are young people, either boys or girls who're few years yet to reach 18. Well, I'm really confused whether to be sad or glad about it. My idealist says, it's nothing but a form of child labor but, my rationalist says, what's bad in getting self empowered at early age? Somehow I feel these fruit-seller boys in Coaker's Walk support my rationalist's view and give a damn to what the idealist thinks! In next photo post I'll be introducing you with the third terracotta temple of Kalna. Do visit back folks.

  4. It's a difficult thing to judge -- whether children working in some parts of the country is right or wrong. It's easy for the court to pass laws, but how will they know if the family is dependent on these kids to live?
