Child labour in sand mining
This 13 year old boy has been mining sand manually for the past 3 years in an illegal sand mining operation near Mumbai. This is also an example of child labour.

Manual labor is labor done "by hand". This means that it is physical work done by people. Examples of labor that is not manual include work done by machines, work done by animals, or work that is more focused on thinking, planning, or giving information to other people. While manual labor is often done with the hands, it does not always have to be—crushing grapes by walking on them is also an example of manual labor.
