Prostitute: the world’s oldest illegal business.
“Prostitute” a name to hide behind the walls. As the history we refer this name exists since ages with different headers but same meaning. In early ages it was said as “Nagar Vadhu”, “Vasya”, “Kothe wali” and many other names not to mention here, this business is considered as one of the oldest illegal business of world.
So there are many arguments on making this as profession and legalize it. People have many opinions some feel they are black spot on society, some feel they should be thrown out to a different place and so many other options. These projections are done by some very good sophisticated and well known personalities of our society; however, the concern is bigger than this.
Red Light area Kolkatta
Just to brief you about this industry in India we have the biggest Red Light area in Kolkatta followed by Delhi. When you dig down you will see the variance in this industry starting from high class till shemales according to budget and requirement. The most amazing and surprising part is to have well renowned public places are spot areas like Lajpat Nagar, GB Road and many other shopping malls. You should be able to identify and get the deal cracked.
Going further you would see girls on very young age are involved in this profession. Good communication skills and persona with such qualities they can easily search for a 9AM to 6PM instead but the whole story starts from here.
So I am trying to pin down some of the reasons they fall in such profession.
Very true that even today majority of girls or women are in this profession. Reasons are many or other family issues majorly financial crises the top reason. Second largest chunk is of those who are forced in this profession by some middle man or agent they get into these dark rooms from where it is difficult to come out.
Interestingly a third group has shown tremendous jump in this profession and that is by will. Yes you heard it right by will many girls who come from small town or villages to complete their studies. Not surprised by a survey which tells that in India this industry has shown 10% growth every year.
Now coming to a metro city with an ambition and expectation of family these girls are mesmerized. The lifestyle of others and to compete it they choose this as a profession. No wonder they have a persona which can attract anyone with a very high maintenance cost. Which includes all the major brands clothing and accessories partying in luxuries hotels. They will charge anything starting from 10K to 1 lac depending on the style and class they maintain. The competition is by implementing the best practices of industry.
After all this the question is Why Prostitute? Why not we as a society work closely with them and encourage choosing a career path or making it legalize.
Answer is yours but at the end the truth is that the life of a prostitute is filled with darkness. Having said this never means that we can run away with the social responsibility we have, some day or another we have to fight for all such issues by joining our hands. Pendown
