There is a society in India’s capital Delhi where main means of livelihood of the community is prostitution. The life of women here in this community is not easy. Most of the women here work as prostitutes and people do not have any problem with their work. Many women do this work at the behest of their husbands.
Here the girls are sold in the name of marriage. Girls are the means of making money for their in-laws, for example, they have to enter into prostitution. The shocking thing is that for these girls or women, their husband find customers.
Here men are dependent on women for home expenses. This is not a problem for this community because they believe that women have been created for this reason. But the odd thing in this society is that no woman thinks against it or does not hesitate, she has also become habituated to it.
Community girls study up to fourth or fifth. Before they become mature enough to understand life, they are traded in the name of marriage. Let’s discuss this strange-and humiliating tradition with pictures in detail.
Before selling, the girls are brought in the panchayat to set rates according to beauty.
Before the girls are sold in the name of marriage, they are introduced to community panchayat, where the rates are fixed according to the beauty of girls.
