Chintu, A Boy Of About Ten - Poem by Gajanan Mishra
Chintu, a boy of about ten
Coming to me daily with a
Is Chintu a paper hawker?
No, certainly not.
As because there is Child Labor Act
And our United nations observing
World day against child labour
I dare not say Chintu is a child labour
If I say so I have to face
So many problems here there
From the public from the police
From the advocates from the judges
Let Chintu distribute newspaper
Daily from door to door
And let him be happy with only
Ten rupees per week.
