Cir­cus chil­dren

Southasia - - EDITOR'S MAIL -

I was highly im­pressed by the sto­ries of the young Nepali per­form­ers of Cir­cus Kathmandu. As men­tioned in the ar­ti­cle ‘Cir­cus of Courage’, the young­sters had a rough child­hood and were vic­tims of some very disturbing in­ci­dents. The fact that they re­mained per­sis­tent and are do­ing some­thing pos­i­tive de­spite all the bru­tal­i­ties they faced is highly ap­pre­cia­ble. Also wor­thy of praise is the or­ga­ni­za­tion, and the brave peo­ple as­so­ci­ated with it, which came to their res­cue and freed them from the bond of slav­ery. It is hoped that they will con­tinue to do the good work.

It is a fact that the curse of child slav­ery and hu­man trafficking is not limited to Nepal. Th­ese so­ci­etal ills ex­ist in all South Asian coun­tries. Keep­ing this in view, I hope the cir­cus troupe from Nepal con­sid­ers vis­it­ing the neigh­bor­ing coun­tries and en­ter­tain a wider au­di­ence. In ad­di­tion to pro­vid­ing qual­ity en­ter­tain­ment to the peo­ple of South Asian coun­tries, the group can serve as a source of in­spi­ra­tion for thou­sands of street chil­dren in th­ese coun­tries who want to change their lives.
