In the state of Chhattisgarh, a 5 year old boy has got a job as a policeman ! He got the job under special rules according to which a family member can take the job of a relative if the relative dies while working in a government job. Because there is no age limit and many families being poor, they send their children to work. One day they go to work, next day they go to school.
The boy, Saurabh, is paid Rs 2.500 ( 37 euros, US$ 45) per month. Every two days, his mother takes him to the office where he works, some 110 kms ( 70 miles) from home. There, he brings water to senior officials.
