Remember your primary and perhaps your secondary days where you have to carry 12 notebooks and 3 textbooks in your bag every week day to school? God save you if you didn't join the school bus and have to trek for miles every morning and afternoon just to get an education. Well, not only is it frustrating, it is also very dangerous and can make children paralyzed by damaging their spinal cords.
The photos below are from one India based Zahir Ali whose nephew had to undergo surgeries to heal the injuries caused by this kind of living.
His post on facebook reads:
This is an eye opener for parents whose children attends Primary School.
The photos are images of my Nephew who attended Primary School and due to his heavy book bag he started walking with a bend and complained of back pain.
On visiting the doctor, he had to undergo major surgery to rectify the problem. I plead with you don't allow your child to lift a heavy school bag on his/her back.
Please lets take note of this eye opener and help our young ones live healthier lives.
