Child rights activist Kailash Satyarthi and his wife Sumedha were the special guests on Monday's episode of Kaun Banega Crorepati 9. Amitabh Bachchan's show is coming to an end with Tuesday's episode as the season finale. Mr Satyarthi had a rather smooth journey on the Hot Seat with occasional excerpts from the life of a person who is known for his struggle against child labour and abuse. Asked by Amitabh Bachchan, Mr Satyarthi shared one particular incident during his encounter with the young workers of a circus troupe. Mr Satyarthi's narration of the many incidents of child abuse left the show host appalled, who appealed to the audience to protect children from exploitation. Kailash Satyarthi was honoured with the Nobel Peace Prize in 2014 for his efforts against child abuse.
