My Childhood

Borders are not natural, they are made by man. May it be between places, races, cultures and fences or between illiteracy and education. On one side of the border lie the children who are devoid of education. The most common reason for illiteracy among children is poverty, which is nothing but the result of corruption. Poverty and child labor are bound together.

I was traveling from Kolkata to Bolpur, India, by train when I saw this child begging on the train.
