    Child and the ballot box, most popular photograph of the year.

    This is not a rare practice. Senior officers can nominate an assistant for election work. It is usually the nephews, sons and neighbors that gets this position. Unfortunate vice principle caught with enough publicity and he was punished like a Pakistani slave master, who is employing children for carpet weaving. Sorry thamay!! Having said that carpet weavers of Pakistan works 7 days a week for their slave masters, one would say that this child with a ballot box is doing a one off job. Wrong! given the number elections held in SL, this boy`s job could be part time equivalent.
