Solving the wrong problem?

Finally, the child labour abolishment is enacted!

Here is one side of the coin as seen by vatsan. One the other hand I wonder how many would be hit for other reasons. I don't know in numbers but the socio-economic state here is such that some (or maybe many) children have to work to support their family. Probably coz they are unaware of what education could give them, probably forced by parents / exploitation.

Now given than those children don't work anymore, what do they do? Do we have adequate resources to give them education? How do we provide alternate support for their families?

When reservation policy requires staggered implementation, how did they go so drastic on this? Sitting at the comforts of our lives we say all this. A day's life from their perspective will probably shed light on why that evil might be necessary.

Authorities ain't stupid either. On a positive note this will be an incitement to improve our education resources. Though it look gray in short sight, it could prove well worth it in a generations time.

I really hope these enthusiastic (or politically driven) decisions are well thought of and don't back-fire.

it was probably too premature for a ban to be effective.
