Harkin bill : the child saver bill of the USA,
threw more than 50000 children from garments to the street.

The image of a starving child with a begging bowl, an image of passivity, has too often been used to portray Bangladeshi children. This straitjacketed portrayal has simplified and thereby distorted reality. Children here work for a living, they feed their families Those on their own develop comradeship, they fend for one another. Children play, stare curiously at cameras, participate in public protests. A privileged few get to hold a grownup’s caring hand. The needs articulated in The Convention of the Rights of the Child is generally accepted and has been ratified by most nations including Bangladesh, but the official acceptance has made little difference to the everyday lives of millions of children.
