Would you agree that promises made to poor children are rarely kept? Why do you think this happens in the incidents narrated in the text?


Answer – 

We agree that promises made to underprivileged kids are frequently broken. We host several chat shows to end child labour, however the majority of child labourers in the world are found in India. Children who work suffer both physical and mental suffering. The author of the lesson “Lost Spring” painted a clear picture of children working in the bangle and rag-picking professions. As she realised the plight of rag pickers, she asked Saheb if he would attend a school if she decided to create one in the area. Eventually, she felt ashamed for making a youngster a promise that she had no intention of keeping.
