Of Human Bondage in Baran, Rajasthan

This article draws on my contribution to a joint report of an enquiry committee set up by the National Commission for the Protection of Child Rights in January 2012. The other members were Asha Mishra and G Sampath. The concluding section is adapted from the conclusion of the joint report. I would like to thank my teammates as well as others who helped in many different ways, in particular Kiran Bhatty, Nikhil Dey, Jean Dreze, Mamta Jaitly, Motilal, Sowmya Sivakumar and Anumeha Yadav.
