A school going boy in Telangana is earning plaudits after a video of him distributing newspapers went viral. The video, shared by K T Rama Rao, a Minister in the Telangana government, shows the young student from Jagtial Town distributing newspapers on his bicycle.
In the short video, the boy, identified as Jai Prakash, was seen with a basket full of newspapers when a man stopped to talk to him. When asked why he was delivering newspapers at this age, the boy was heard responding, “what’s wrong?” in Telegu.
The boy goes on to say that there was nothing wrong in working hard now as it will help him in future. Rao said he “loved his confidence, composure and clarity of thought & expression.”

But appreciation is okay . some scholarship should be started equivalent to his earning. This is not a right age for a child to work and earn even if he is willing. Kindly look into. https://t.co/xRpDDEHjQO
