My mother is from Kolkata, and she was sold into the red-light area 15 years ago. I have one sister. We live with the brothel-keeper at my mother's work place, which is very dangerous for my sister and myself.
My sister and I were at great risk due to the unhealthy relationship between our parents. Our father doesn’t take responsibility for us, so our mother approached the Sahaara field staff to have me admitted into their boy's home. I was admitted to the boy's home as well as into the local school. I had never been to school. I am happy in my new home and feel safe.
