Default Illegal Child Prostitution in India

Child prostitution is becoming such a problem with young girls in India.
Why? Their own families are selling them to brothel owners.

These girls are then transported to red light districts. One of the
most notorious and large red light districts would be Calcutta's
red light district.

Calutta is a city in India. As an Indian myself,
I feel I should post a thread to raise awareness about
this growing crime.

I became intrested in the topic of child prostitution after
seeing a movie, Born into Brothels.

Then, I went on a hunt through many book retailers.
It wasn't until a month later that I found an amazing
book.

It is called Sold, and it tells the story of Lakshmi,
a young thirteen-year-old girl that is sold into
prostitution.

Lakshmi is originally from Nepal, a small
country that is bordered by India.

Her step-father sold her to a woman
whom Lakshmi refered to as Auntie.

Auntie then took Lakshmi to Calcutta's
red light district, and gave her to
a man, who then sold
Lakshmi to a woman named
Mumtaz.

Mumtaz runs a brothel still in India.

Lakshmi met and made friends with the girls
from the brothel.

Lakshmi was told by Mumtaz she would have
to engage in sexual acts with men
that will pay Lakshmi.

Mumtaz then cheated Lakshmi of all her funds
that were supposed to be sent home.

Lakshmi finally escaped the brothel with
an American, who took her back to America.

Read the book. Its available at B.Dalton bookstores.

What is your opinion on child prostitution?
Why?

I certainly think child prostitution is horrible and I doubt there can be other opinions...

check your facts, sweetie.
yes it is. Besides, does it matter if
its legal or not? Would you like it if
your parents sold you
to be a prostitute?

Please quote from a Indian lawbook that is says it's illegal. Because we watched a documentary in History my sophomore year and everybody was all outraged that it was legal to force girls into prostitution.

And yes, it does matter if it's legal or not, since the title says it's illegal.

You do realize that child prostitution happens everywhere... It doesn't specifically have to be India.

Human trafficing in general is wrong and needs to be outlawed completely.
