Child labour is a condition in which children below 14 years start doing physical work in factories and houses. They take this risk at very little age. This age is to hold a pen or pencil in their hands but instead they hold a sack, clean the plates in hotels and lift heavy irons in their hands. They also work in chemical factories which effect their health. Instead of going to school they go to their work places. They work instead of studying.
Poverty is the main cause of child labour. Most of the people in India are poor in villages. Many adults and children die due to hunger. Their partners think that they will get money if their children work and dont understand what they will get if they go to school.
