The 5th - the poor are just like those in the western countries as well. Here is a girl about 9 or 10yrs old. She has to sell flowers until 4am. She doesn't go to school. And if she misses her "sales target", someone told me she will be beaten. It seems a syndicate is behind a bunch of these kids. I saw one aged 6 or 7yrs old - pushed and fell unto the busy mainroad by a 'rich' looking guy who couldn't be bothered. My heart broke to see the little one picking herself up and also the flowers scattered on the road. Nobody helped.
