Telangana School Boy Spotted Delivering Newspapers, Says ‘Nothing Wrong With Working’

In countries like the US, kids get to earn their pocket money by working. They voluntarily either take up part-time jobs like at a cafe or tutor/babysit younger kids. Instead of being frowned upon, many believe that it is a good way to learn the value of money and hard work.

Similarly, a school boy in Telangana’s Jagtial town named Jai Prakash was recently spotted delivering newspapers in a cycle, reports The Indian Express. When asked, he confidently says that there’s nothing wrong with working hard alongside studying.

A video of the incident was posted by KT Rama Rao, a Minister in the Telangana government. Have a look at the video here:

Several people online lauded the boy for working from such a young age. Many gave examples of famous personalities like APJ Abdul Kalam and Warren Buffet who started working young and went on to achieve great heights in the future.

While some asked whether this is ‘child labour’, others clarified that it’s not unless a kid is forced to work against their will, receive a meagre wage, and is exploited.
