A child chasing goats or cows, cutting grass or a very young girl washing
utensils, carrying a pot of water, precariously balancing it on her head or
cleaning her house while minding her younger brother in a cradle, are
uncommon images in rural India. Not so visible are the thousands of children
rolling beedis, working in glass factories or engaged in carpet weaving, match
making, agriculture etc. Similarly, the shoeshine boy or the little child serving a
cup of tea or sweeping the floor with a soggy dark piece of cloth in a hotel or a
dhaba and the risking number of street children may be the visible forms of
working children in urban townships or along highways. But there are
innumerable invisible young girls and boys performing domestic chores,
helping their parents employed in an urban on rural home.Child labour in
ancient India was existed in the form of slaves and in medieval India rulers
encouraged it with intention to make traffic in child slaves. In India, it is mainly
associated with the industrialization, from British rule
