III. Read the following passage carefully and answer the questions given at the end:

We have been talking about the evils of child labour for the last 10 years in this country. But the number of working children seems to be increasing. Instead of building up a groundswell of public opinion against child labour and for compulsory primary education, we are still talking about child labour as being necessary for the survival of the family. The debate has not changed radically in the last 10 years. The result is that children continue to work in the most hazardous conditions and compulsory education in still a dream.

The presence of child labour in hazardous industries is a gross violation of human rights. If children are not dying in explosions, they are dying a slow but sure death in the glass, brassware, lock, slate, balloon, brick-kiln and other industries.

Not only are children working in hazardous industries, they are also engaged in the most hazardous processes in industries which adults to not want to touch. In the glass industry, children are primarily engaged in removing molten glass from the furnaces. Since the furnaces are designed for adults, the child's face is almost touching the wall of the furnaces. It is not all. Accidents happen all the time and most of them go unreported. Doctors refuse to treat injured or severely ill patients. A common complaint I heard from workers in all the industries I studied - glass, lock, brassware, pottery and gemstone - was that doctors tell them to come back to them for treatment when they are better. Doctors refuse to treat severely injured patients as they have to necessarily report medico-legal cases.

Child labour in hazardous industry at least needs to be banned by a Presidential order or something dramatic and serious like that. Parents also cannot be allowed to justify sending their children to work in such industries on the grounds of poverty. A massive countrywide campaign needs to be launched - like the campaign on the girl child - stating clearly the punitive action which would be taken if children were found to be employed. 

Answer the following questions briefly : 

(1) What is the result of the debates held on "Child Labour for the last ten years? 

(2) Name some of the hazardous industries where children are often found working. 

(3) Why do parents send their children to work? 

(4) What is the need of the hour? 

(5) Who do accidents generally go unreported? 

(6) Explain in simple English the meanings of the words:

(a), Punitive (b) Hazards. 2x6=12

Delightful throw 

Adore weep 

Prudence         imitate

(e) Draft an advertisement announcing the shifting of your office to a new building. 5x4=20
