Stop exploitation of small children in live shows on Television.

In various live shows aired on different entertainment channels small children of as low as 4-5 years of age are made to perform on big stages amidst light and pomp and show before biggies of Bollewood.

Small children are exposed to cut throat competition in the live shows creating undue pressure on children for performance and winning. This can be very well seen and experienced in crying and tears of losing children in such programs.

Further in the name of comedy small children are trained to speak vulgar words and show gesture to the Judges who are 30 -40 years elder to them.

By using these small children channels are minting money like anything.

Further, for appearing in these programs parents create tremendous pressure on children for training and performance. This not only deviate them from studies but also deprive them of their normal development and growth as child.

As per the guidelines of Apex court entrance examination and interview has been abolished in the admission of children in primary classes to protect them from undue pressure of examination and competition. How can the  same child be exposed to such difficult competition and preparation for Live shows of performance on television.

This is a very serious matter involving issues of child labour and exploitation of children.

I submit that –

1.      There should be a ban on these live shows on television involving performance and competition of children.

2.      Minimum age of children should be fixed at 14 years to take part in any such competition and live shows.
