    On bail for 19 years, son born in jail works to raise $172 bond for mother

    http://www.cnn.com/2013/05/30/world/asia/india-bail/index.html

    (CNN) -- In a story that could step straight from the pages of a Charles Dickens novel, an Indian son has worked night and day in a garment factory to earn the bail money to get his mother out of jail.

    This month, after ceaseless work stitching in the textile factory, Kanhaiya Kumari, 19, raised the 5,000 rupees (about $89) needed pay his mother's surety.


    The rest at link.....after reading this, we are lucky to have the system we have in the U.S., although there are problems at times.

    He went to work at age 13 and it took him six years to be able to eat or whatever and to save what bratty kids in some countries have invested in a couple of video games given as rewards or gifts.
