About those girls who have to become sex workers for sex starved Indians! Palash Biswas

About those girls who have to become sex workers for sex starved Indians!

Palash Biswas

Capital punishment has never been enough to stop attacks on humanity and the women have to become the softest targets in a patriarchal society which we sustain with everything on stake including humanity itself.Despite moral policing!

Indians are sex starved and sex is taboo in India.

Despite moral policing  we ,the Indians from grass root level to the highest places seek an opportunity to exploit at least one woman and reduce the institution of marriage into licensed prostitution as we are quiet habitual to treat woman,the fair sex as sex slave or sex toy.It is apartheid most brute!

Recently,mainstream media published an eyeopening sex survey which exposed our ethical moral hypocricy!

Today,Bengali Daialy Ei Samay published a flagger on front page about those girls who have no survival kit in Indian tea gardens which witness death procession all the time.A young lady reports from ground zero in a tea garden Birpara where the girls have to feed their families and they have only capital,their bodies on sale!

The icons of Indian renaissance,had been also slave traders and had stakes in london stock exchange.

They also ejected out tribal men and women to get them as bonded slaves in tea gardens.

Thus,tribals from Jharkhand and central India scattered countrywide as the transfer of power to the Manusmriti hegemony scattered us,the Bengali Hindu refugees worldwide ejecting out us out of history,geography and humanity.

Ten thousand refugee children have been told to be lost in Europe only after humanity was stumbled to see the dead body of Iylan on seacoast.

It is the plight of humanity on this good earth inflicted with intensive oil war and man made calamities defined as economic reforms!It is open market!It is failed Trump card as well as failed Hindutva all the way and humanity suffers.

Very recently,we have been witnessing the agents loitering in and around Nepal,devastated by massive earthquake and they had been engaged in recruitment for brothels worldwide.

The Free Market has transformed this good earth into an eternal brothel and our empowered women are not safe at home,in public places or workplaces as patriarchal society is armed with plastic money to buy everything all on humanitarian ground!

For last five years,my office is shifted to Mumbai Road from Central Kolkata and I seldom see the injured face of the city of joy,Tilottama unless the traffic drives me into Kolkata via Howrah.

But I have been witnessing the bleeding soul of humanity right into the heart of Kolkata,every night,late in the night returning from my office along with Central avenue in Sonagachhi.

Now Sonagachhi is exploding all the way as we have read in so many works of literature!

Sonagachhi has no borer whatsoever and prostitution,better say it sex work  is full bloom industry for investment starving PPP model of development.

As The members of the world's oldest profession have been portrayed in many ways through fictional literature over the centuries, including the temptress, the fallen woman, the hooker with a heart of gold and the tragic victim.

The Greeks, the Romans, the Elizabethans and the Victorians were particularly fascinated by prostitutes although modern novelists keep returning to prostitution themes again and again. Our selection has tried to steer clear of erotica (although John Cleland's Fanny Hill can be considered an early example of pornography in English prose) and the countless pulp paperbacks from the 1950s and 1960s that feature hookers. This list includes the likes of Emile Zola, Charles Dickens, Jack Kerouac, Mario Llosa Vargas, William T. Vollmann and Paulo Coelho.

Working girls often appear as supporting characters – such as Lorena Wood in Lonesome Dove,  Bianca in Othello, Sandy and Candy from One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest and Belle Watling in Gone With the Wind - but many writers have used a prostitute as their central character and attempted to provide an insight into sex and life on the Game.

Courtesans, streetwalkers, call-girls, escorts, hookers, madams, fallen women, scarlet women and ladies of the night – call them what you will, but prostitutes are continue to be a reoccurring theme in literature.

It is the eternal saga unbound.
