This year students of many schools in Delhi took a vow not to use crackers and other fireworks on the occasion of Deepawali to reduce air and noise pollution and also to register their protest against the child labour involved in this industry. The next day, almost all the national dailies published this news with great appreciation for this unique gesture on the part of the children. Getting motivated by this news write an article on children’s role in curbing black-marketing in the society’ for publication in the paper.
Ans:- CHILDREN’S ROLE IN CURBING BLACK-MARKETING
Adulteration, corruption and black-marketing have become banes of Indian society. Despite the vows of every successive government to end these evils, nothing has been achieved so far. What our great elders and national leaders have failed to achieve, can perhaps be done by little school-going children. It was amply demonstrated this year by their resolve not to use crackers and other fireworks on the occasion of Deepawali. While no appeals to vehicle owners have ever worked to reduce air and noise pollution, the tiny tots have shown the way. They have also effectively registered their protest against the child labour involved in the cracker industry. If little children can do all this, they can also help fight evils that are afflicting our country. The biggest of these evils is the evil of black-marketing which is the mother of most other evils. They can fight it the way they did in the case of crackers and child labour. They can resolve not to buy anything in black-market nor let others do so. I think children can prove the most powerful weapons of putting wrong-doing elders to shame. This is a weapon that can strike effectively without causing any hurt. With their pleasing and beaming protesting faces, they can kill evil without killing the evil-doer.
