TO GO WITH: India-mining-children-labour,FEATURE; by Ammu Kannampilly In this photograph taken on January 30, 2013, an Indian teenager mans a coal crushing machine at a road side coal depot in the East Jaintia Hills district of the Indian northeastern state of Meghalaya. Child labour is officially illegal in India, with several state laws making the employment of anyone under 18 in a hazardous industry a non-bailable offence. Meghalaya, however, has traditionally been exempt due to its special status as a northeastern state with a significant tribal population. According to the Shillong-based non-profit, Impulse NGO Network, some 70,000 children are currently employed in Meghalaya's mines, with several thousand more working at coal depots.
