Rag pickers of india

The rag pickers of India present a pitiable sight. It is poverty that goads them to resort rag picking. Day in and day out they may be seen on the roads, the lanes and the bylanes of a city or town looking for cast-off clothes or something else showy or shoddy that may sell. More often that not, it is children who have taken to rag picking. But some young men and women are also forced to take up the showy trade to make both ends meet. Why should innocent children who should be at school at this age do this filthy job? It is because their parents are often too poor to support them. So they neglect them and abandon them to face the cruel world on their own.
