TO GO WITH: India-mining-children-labour,FEATURE; by Ammu Kannampilly In this photograph taken on January 31, 2013, underage miner Gopal Rai uses the camera on his phone to take a photo of a photographer inside the hut where he lives, with seven other miners, in an eight by ten feet tarpaulin-covered bamboo and metal shack in Rymbai village in the northeastern state of Meghalaya. The 17-year-old spends his wages on clothes, mobile phone downloads and a fortnightly schedule of spiky 'Korean-influenced' haircuts. 'Some days I feel all right, on other days it's a little difficult to breathe,' Rai said, a saffron and black scarf wrapped around his neck. 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.
