“Be glad of life because it gives you the chance to love and to work and to play and to look up at the stars.”

It is summer time in India and the schools are closed and the school children have holidays these days so we get to see lot of them working to earn the extra money to support thier family.

This Saturday I had a chance to visit Mir-Alam Mandi which is the wholesale/retail vegetable market in Hyderabad from the times of the great Nizam rulers.

I saw a few small girls busy carrying cute loads of fresh vegetables on their young shoulders,earning that extra money by shifting some of the vegetables from the truck to the vendors place and they showed character for life...:)

It is so easy to invoke the usual argument of child work and a girl child doing labor but I guess it is about enterprise and helping out during the holidays.
