Small hands can handle a pen better

Childhood is the most innocent stage in a human life. It is that phase of life where a child is free from all the tensions, fun loving, play and learns new things, and is the sweet heart of all the family members. But this is only one side of the story. The other side is full of tensions and burdens. Here, the innocent child is not the sweet heart of the family members, instead he is an earning machine working the entire day in order to satisfy the needs and wants of his/ her family. This is what is called “Child Labour”.

Child labour not only causes damage to a child’s physical and mental health but also keeps him deprived of his basic rights to education, development and freedom. It is not only affecting under-developed and developing countries, but developed countries are also facing this though the rate is comparatively very less.

Before I conclude, I pen a few words:- Banning child labour will help in boosting the economy of a country and let us all take some step in the direction so that we can being smiles to many faces and make this world a beautiful place for a child to live in.

“Small hands can handle a pen better. Lend your support to abolish child labour”.

Pretty pigeons

On the ground and in the trees
When they’re chased, and yelled at
They get shaky knees.

The Rat, the Cat and the Dog

I’m a cute little rat
I always get chased by that big cat
But he usually fails
In trying to catch me by my tail.
 He catches me sometimes
I sometimes escape
But he sometimes holds me tight
Then I get the fright!
Hi! I’m the cat
I love chasing that ugly rat
But I hate that dog
Who chases me like a hog!
I’m the dog
And I chase that cat like a hog
To save that cute rat
Who gets chased by the cat!
