Silence please: A Kid at Work !
While the affluent are jousting for slots in prestigious schools for their precious children with rich dreams, this little girl in abject poverty not knowing when her next meal would come has made the rugged pavement her classroom amidst the din of city traffic and a cacophony of earsplitting noises.
