Question 9. Answer any one of the following questions in 120-150 words:<br> (i) What are the hazards of working in the glass bangle industry?


Hazards of working in a glass bangle factory are manifold. It is harmful to the eyes of the maker as the polishing of the glass bangles produces dust which may result in blindness. Working in glass furnaces with high temperatures and in dingy cells without proper ventilation and light takes away the brightness of the eyes. Similarly, during the welding work in the glass factory, sitting in dark rooms in front of flickering lamps is equally harmful to the eyes and many children lose their eyesight even before they grow up. Their eyes become so accustomed to that light that they cannot see the natural daylight outside. There are chances of skin bum too. Working in glass bangle industries leaves an adverse effect on the health of the workers. Besides, the workers are physically, emotionally and psychologically hurt too. They are exploited by middlemen, policemen, sukars, bureaucrats and politicians and it is impossible for them to come out of their trap.
