Life is akin to a magic garden wherein the little flowers/fleurs (kids) are nurtured with care and humility by their gardner (teachers) whilst imbibing them with good qualites so that they grow up into good hearted, genteel & responsible human beings.
Last week, wrote two poems on prostitution and the dark sides to sex work. (Gajra and Veshya) Just when I was about to go to bed last night, the woman inside me told me not to. And my fingers opened google and in no time did I see myself reading up the heart wrenching stories on sex slavery, human trafficking and forced prostitution. The horrible realities, no one talks about. And what I read, shook me. Viewer's discretion advised: IF YOU ARE WEAK HEARTED OR UNDERAGE, STILL READ. FOR THIS IS THE BRUTAL REALITY OF OUR UGLY RACE AND IT NEEDS TO BE KNOWN. #dontbeagandhari Who "chose" to be blindfolded. ____________________________________
My fingers tremble as I type this, but I know, I'm not gonna stop. Sex work as we all know what it is, is a horrible horrible reality that unfortunately still exists in 21st century. As I put it, "A business in which humans trade their own skins and kins in exchange for paisa". And most often, women. WOMAN. YES. SHE. SHE THE CREATOR, SHE THE MOTHER AND THE DAUGHTER AND THE GENESIS OF ALL LIFE IS THE ONE MADE TO GO THROUGH THIS HELL IN MOST PARTS OF THE WORLD.

They regularly drugged her so she would fall unconscious and 'clients' could do with her as they pleased. ~Aisha Parveen, Pakistan. The other girls at the brothel where she was kept, were forced to sleep naked so they would be too embarrassed to attempt escape.
At age 6, she was taught by her alcoholic, drug addict teen mom, how to perform oral sex on men. "Like a lollipop" She explained. At age 14, she ran away from home only to land in the arms of a pimp who made her believe he loved her, as he prostituted her. ~Shelia Faye Simpkins, USA.
"There was one guy and I didn't want to do what he wanted me to. So he beat me up, because he was drunk" ~Marinela Badea, Romania.
" He said, 'Do you want a client?' I didn't understand what it meant but I knew it was bad. I said no. Then he brought me to a room for punishment " ~Sreypov Chan, Cambodia. Sreypov was forced to have sex with as many as 20 men in a day, seven days a week for years. "I wanted to die" She said. ]] ____________________________
Just reading this, makes me shiver under my skin. Imagine what it must be to live a life like that. And here we are, crying over break ups. What have we become? Monsters in our own skin. Why do we always want to establish power and control over everything that is vulnerable?! Why can't we just let others be?? Is sex so much of an uncontrollable desire? F those feminists who scream slogans of "sex work is work" NO. no it isn't. And it never will be. I agree there are women willingly into this, but MAJORITY of women and children HAVE BEEN FORCED. To such fake feminists, for once, go and have a look at the red light zones and look at the miserable conditions these women are made to live in. Unaware of their past, present, future, they are living, like mere corpses, only breathing. Devoid of all the facilities, respect and kindness, they go through hell every each day.
" ए मर्द, है कैसा ये तुझको ग़ुरूर अपनी मर्दानगी का? इतना ही गर्व है अपनी ताकत का, तो जाके देख सोनागाछी और कामाठीपुरा की गलियों में आज भी बाजार भरता है और तेरी ही बहनो की बोली लगती है... रोक सकता है तो रोक ले, बोली लगाने वाले भी तेरे जैसे ही मर्द होने का दावा करते हैं। "
