India's missing children: The story continues
BBC News - Rory Peck Award for story about homeless children in Mumbai
Several years ago it was reported that there are close to a million missing kids in India. The underworld of metro cities like Mumbai absorb them into their nefarious activities of human trafficking and drugs and crime. Poverty and social disparities born out of caste inequalities force these children into their nightmarish existence. Many of these kids belong to the oppressed and marginalized groups of people.
The New Year celebration in a few weeks will flaunt the obscene show of wealth and pomp of India's new elite through the New Year events and media. Who will take the trouble to reach out and help free just one of these children during this season?
