No, it isn't sad at all. Many of these communities are more closely bonded than any of our own. They mnight be dirt poor but perhaps I'll upload the rest of the ones I took that day and you'll see that the kids are having a ball crushing sugar cane. In Asia, the children are usually expected to look after each other while the parents work. Not such a bad system.
