I saw a drug peddlar today, and he was all of 10. I was meeting up with some friends, and T was just telling us how the ragpickers who walk the Priya grounds double up as peddlars. Strange that soon after, we saw them at ‘work’. Aaj nahi milega,didi they told a girl next to us. The girl was in a group. He again told someone that it wouldn’t be possible to get any today.

I don’t know how to react. I should be shocked, little kids peddling drugs, but I’m curiously unresponsive. All I can remember is that I bought 2 crayon drawing from 2 little rag pickers, not too long ago. One had a house and the other had some animal. It is kind of strange to put the two together.

It is shocking. If these chilren are sent to some reform house it doesn’t help.There are bigger criminals there. Poor children they grow up to become criminals. This is the other face of India Poised.
