    Happy Children’s day.
    Several children in any slum walk around naked, but they are not necesarily dirty, snot-nosed or incessantly crying. They may not eat so much as a middle class person, but they do eat, none the less. As for seeing pictures of children in slums crying(though they’re not crying i this pic here), won’t any baby or child cry being away from it’s mommy? Not due to poverty, as young children and babies do not know what poverty is.

    shruthi,🙂 thanks a lot!!!

    ganga,
    glad you liked it. and thanks for those insightful comments.
    sad to see children living in slums and on the streets. many children prioritize the psychological and social experience of poverty (e.g., humiliation, shame and stigma) as being more significant than any material deprivation.
    today, unfortunately, india has one of the highest numbers of children working for meagre wages, just to help their families survive. when children work, they have much less time at home with their families, or to attend primary school and learn basic skills, such as the ability to read and write, or solve maths problems.
