Walking through a crowded market of Gurgaon, a child's voice grabbed my attention. He was almost running to keep pace with me. He was carrying two packets in his hand and a polythene bag full of more packets in other hand. So a sales kid he was! I paused and looked towards him. He said, "I buy them directly from the factory. That's why it will cost you less."
"How much?" Although I was not in need of those packets but still kid's marketing skills were drawing my attention.
"One packet will cost ...." I couldn't hear the price because of car honk. "And if you buy two I will give you 25% discount."
My question is if I buy those packets from him, am I encouraging child labour or am I making a person self reliant?
