Sad Picture of The Day

September 30, 2010

The picture is sad and disturbing. They need to have books in their hands not spade, cricket ball not stones and pebbles. The picture was taken at one of the construction sites in front of Jawahar Lal Nehru stadium, New Delhi during Jan 30, 2010, the month India celebrates Republic Day. I am not sure if the construction site was related to Commmonwealth Games, but its very much possible that it was. Commonwealth games brought many migrant workers to New Delhi looking for work and with them they also brought their children and they could be seen working in these sites and many organizations tried to help out these children and families. Even Asha for Education UFlorida chapter recevied a proposal from one of the NGOs for these kids but due to various reasons the project couldn’t be funded, one of them being lack of volunteer bandwidth. Kids working for bread and milk, its sad 🙁 If this picture stirs you inside, do join any of your nearby organization which works for children and do whatever minimum you can do. Committed volunteers needed!!
