and their dignity, and that
is harmful to physical and

years, 3.8 million working.
Out of these 3.8 million economically active
workers, 2.8 million were from age group 5 to 9
in the agriculture sector. 73% of them were said

When the sun falls, and the moon comes bright
The shadow falls all over my life,

They say life is a struggle to strive for the best
For me its a few hours of rest

I dont need your love, I dont need your sympathy
Just give me a penny,
to fill my stomach which is for a day empty.

Dont know what lies in the future cant say what lies ahead
Why I was born, I always regret

My dream of life oh God, bless me with four shoulders
What can take me to ultimate heights

Dont hurt me, dont laugh at me
Im your mere reflection, give me some dignity

a better tomorrow. . .
Lets join hands
for A
better tomorrow
