an urge to fiction

Note: 55 Fictions is precise form of micro-fiction that refers to the works of fiction limited to a maximum of fifty-five words.

It’s an attempt to focus light on the various dimensions of sheer neglects and mind set of people, leading to the pitiable predicament prevailing in the society.

unnatural born Mother

"She looked gloomy and dismayed.
With three kids she stepped in the crowd.

She had baby girl a year old in her arms, 
Second was a four years old young boy and
Other was around five years old girl.

Remarkably, her own age was seven years old.

She begged with her siblings in the train. "

Girl childhood

...40% of Indian population is consist of 
children(below 18years old), 
out of this 25%are engaged as child labourer,
nearly 60%
of thechild workers areGirl Child..
You will find many such under age girls and children on the road, in the crowded trains and swarming market places begging for her family. This is just an extension to their struggle and dreadful life.
A humble age when she cannot take care of herself, she is asked to take care of her siblings too. Where she is supposed to hold a pen in her hand and go to school to study, she is asked to hold her sibling in arms and go to train and beg.

Is this a justice to her and her childhood?
Is it fair to consider a girl child as a lesser child?
