A video that is a shame on the education system in India, is making rounds on social media. Two girls, clad in school uniform, are seen fetching a bucket-full of water to a government school in Madhya Pradesh’s Damoh district.

Even though the bucket seems too heavy for the little girls to lift yet they are engaged in the laborious task. The social media users are condemning the school administration for doing so and are saying that drinking water was among the basic amenities a school should provide.

Notably, the surfaced video is from Budhar development block of Damoh district in Madhya Pradesh. A case of child labour has come to the notice and is against students of primary school in Government Primary School, Agra Tola.

The reports say that the teacher here orders that the children have to fill water every day before attending the classes. Following the order of their teachers, every day the girl students fill water in a large plastic bucket from a hand pump located at some distance from the school.

After this, two to four students bring the bucket slowly to the school. The shoulders of young students seem not so strong to lift the heavy buckets of water, but as it is their teacher’s order, the students have to do this work every day under compulsion.

The viral video shows, somehow, the girl students lifting heavy buckets and taking intermittent stops to drink the water bucket to the gate of the school.

It has been learned that the hand pump located in the school premises has been lying defunct for a long time, so the children have to bring water from the hand pump located on the roadside, some distance away from the school, for drinking. Even as the servants have also been posted to the school, in spite of that, the students have filled the water themselves and lifted the heavy buckets.

Many parents have objected to this act of students filling the drinking water as the buckets are too heavy and this also causes ill-effects on their studies.
