Theiyvanai started working in the textile industry in the southern Indian state of Tamil Nadu when she was still a child. Now old enough to vote for the first time, she is urging politicians to guarantee proper wages for such jobs.

  1. This news channel always targeting India and Indians. I've been watching this channel, they always focuing on the fake datas and defame India as a bad one. But the Saddest part is people also believing them. Only a few time they show some valid data. How cheap is this? Prostitute channel.

  2. Its so sad that many, many people around the world have to work under standards we would riot about in our countries to receive what's basically peasant pay.
    I hope she, and the many other people suffering similarly can find happiness in their lives.

  3. It is the same with religion, primitive cultures and violent uneducated regimes. It is always the women who suffer the ignorance stupidity and greed of men the most. The day religion is replaced with education and the very day that the Putins, Trumps, MBS's and Kims of the world are given their just dues by righteous men with a spine and a moral compass, is the day the majority will rule and females given what is right and equal. Till then sisters you'll remain fearful prisoners of a HUGE lie.

  4. Where do the BBC choose these actors from?
    Don't get me wrong – I hate slave labour in poor countries and think they should get a proper wage – but where does the media get these people from?
    Always some one pushing for something – last month it was a Swedish girl supposedly writing her own scripts and talking at major event.
    In that case ; just who gave her those platforms to speak on?
    Always question what you see presented before you.

  5. aahhhh,,,
    BBC survey found NARENDRA MODI as worlds 7 corrupt man.

  6. These arya samajis ALSO CALLED BRAHMINS DO LOT OF INJUSTICE AND SHOW DEADLY PARTIALITY TO THE NATIVES OF INDUS VALLEY CIVILISATION PEOPLE. THESE BRAHMINS ARE ACTUALLY FROM MESOPOTAMIA NOW CALLED IRAN IRAQ AND EGYPT THEY NEVER ALLOWED EDUCATION TRADE AND COMMERCE ETC TO THE NATIVES. BRITISHERS BROUGHT EDUCATION HEALTH AND ADMINSTRATION TO ALL PEOPLE. BRAHMINS DID NOT LIJED IT THATS WHY THEY STARTED MOMENT AGAINST BRITS RULE IN INDIA. ACTUAL THIEVES ARS BRAHMIBS LOOTED AND BUILT 40 LAKHS OF TEMPLES OCCUPYING LAKHS OF ACRES OF LANDS AND ASHRAMS. THEY WROTE IN MANUSMRITHY THAT INDIAN NATIVES ARE BORN FROM BRAHMINS FEET. THUS DIVIDED IN CASTE LINES. THEY DO NOT ALLOW US FREELY TO WORSHIP FREELY SPEAK AND FREELY CRITICISE..UNO UNSC MUST RAISE THIS AND DISCUSS ABOUT NATIVE INDIANS.

  7. Bachelor's degree holders (Civil Engineer & Architects) start job with $220-$250 per month & $800-$1000 a month at prime of their career. India should now raise up its standards & create employable, high quality engineers who can earn a dignity & equivalent living standards as that of US, UK.
