Abstract

The subsistence and perpetuation of child labor is a blot on the conscience of modern-day civilized society. Though children are born free and equal, they often face an uncertain future and the possibility of becoming prey to the exploitative set up of society. Regrettably, they are denied opportunities and are ultimately subjected to enter the workforce. The predicament of child labor is a warning sign of pervasive diseases, due to an exploitative structure, lopsided development, and the inequities of resources ownership, with its correlation between large-scale unemployment and miserable poverty in many countries. India has a huge number of working children. The majority of these children are subjected to the worst forms of exploitation and abuse. Notwithstanding the constitutional provisions to safeguard against child abuse, unabashed neglect persists. Children are forced to work under atrocious conditions and in hazardous sectors, where the major segment of child labor occurs. In this paper, an attempt has been made to draw the attention of the policy makers to the best approach to solve the child-labor problem. The paper is based on the author?s few years of field experience in several parts of southern India.

Abstract

Rural health development in India traces its history to the seventeenth century when voluntary efforts to serve mankind were initiated by the then rulers. The rural health development functions were assumed by the government in the context of recurrent famines, but in the beginning, they did not have any legal sanctions behind them. We can divide health in India into two divisions: 1) high quality medical care in urban India; and 2) low health infrastructure in rural India. Reports indicate that more than 63 percent of rural people do not have access to modern curative and preventive health care facilities in various part of the country and that only 24.6 percent of doctors are serving in rural areas. Furthermore, there is a large disparity in the presence of government hospitals between rural and urban parts of Karnataka state. Illiteracy, unhygienic health conditions, malnutrition, and a scarcity of potable water from wells are some of the reasons why rural people make up such a large proportion of those suffering from various health disorders. Normally, people with low economic status such as rural folk are the victims of various epidemics and endemics. The major section of rural society is either small land holders or marginal holders having very limited resources. Clearly, their socio-economic status is very low and they cannot spend more money on health. It is stated that there is a positive correlation between the health status of the rural people and their social, economic, and cultural background. This paper is based on a careful review of various reports, secondary data, and experts’ opinion pertaining to the health situation in Karnataka state, South India.
