Evil vice with modern cover


written by Shreya at in category Social with 5 Comments


“Call a jack a jack. Call a spade a spade. But always call a whore a lady” by Patrick Rothfuss, The name of the wind.

Brave is the man who loves the woman for her heart and not her body. We have so many un discussed evils in society. Prostitution being one of them is an ancient theory of selling the sexual services for money. The services of rendering sexual activities have seen its step coming from the ancient times. We had our very own nagar vadhu amarpali form vaishali who adopted budhism later which has its root in the book “aajat satru”. Aryan ruler of India followed the system of celestial court and developed the system of guest prostitution. They were also offered as ransom to the victor to part with his most beloved prostitute. Empires fell and came up for her sake.

In south india they were known as devdasi and in north india as mukhies. The devadasi cultural was very relevant where the girls were married to the gods. Later used in flesh trade. They were allowed to enter the bond of matrimony. This shows that prostitution thrived in india since the ancient ages. Due to the grave economic distress,they had no choice but to take the recourse to the laziest of all trade, the trade of sex. Social disability and economic hardship have led the woman to adopt the profession.

Prostitution isn’t called the oldest profession in the world without reason. In the ancient times, courtesans occupied places of regal status in the kingdoms, something which seems to have trickled down to a horribly poor and extremely difficult-to-escape state of affairs in India today.

Whether it’s because of tradition or a society where that is the only means of income, there are places in India where prostitution is a widely accepted and sometimes the only form of livelihood. Some places are Natpurwa, Uttar Pradesh, Devdasis of Karnataka, Wadia, Gujarat and The Bachara Tribe of Madhya Pradesh. Prostitution prevails in society for man and woman both, but the only difference is man do it out of unemployment and lack of choice and woman do it because they are abducted and forced to get into flesh trade. After a survey in India was found the reason for this was poverty unemployment lack of options, stigma and adverse social activities etc. About one quarter of India’s population comprises of girl children up to the age of 19 years. However, they are discriminated socially, psychologically, economically and sexually. This gender discrimination is socially defined and continues from cradle to grave. One of India’s most striking characteristics is its material poverty.

But to my belief there is a very important reason and that is the love for sex, love for women’s body. The view of women as commodity is persuasive in popular manifestations of Hindustan culture in India.

The reason for choosing prostitution is fate and uncanny situations. No woman wants to sell her body for money and to be looked down upon. We as society outcaste them. We believe ourselves to be pure and pious but are we?

Why do we tend to forget that we are directly and indirectly push them to do something so disgraceful. We as people promote it.

Man wants different woman to sleep every night why so, why so much of inhuman treatment? Why are we losing our moral values? When sati was abolished why wasn’t prostitution? Isn’t that a social evil too? It’s the grave social evil in our society to disrespect the woman as weaker sex. We as responsible youth should educate people regarding this evil practice. The world won’t progress if the woman and children are traded for flesh. The laws need to be more crucial for human trafficking which has become a trade in India.

We need to take a stand on our moral values before we lose our mortality.

She is mother
She is sister
She is wife
She is life
She is light
She is nature
She has love
She has dream too
She is creative
She is beautiful too
Besides all the above
She is a prostitute too.

You abuse her
You hate her
You scold her
You leave her,
In the dark world,
You title her ‘Harpy’
You say her worse life,
To your all now,
She is a prostitute.

O’ this gentle society
You are the birth of this woman
Can you tell me,
Why such honour to her?
Why she is so hated?
Who made her so?
The god or you?
Why She called Prostitute?
Who necessitate it?
Isn’t it your nasty lust?
Isn’t it your ugly greed?
Isn’t it You man,
Who left her helpless?
Isn’t it you man,
Who thrown her in darkness?
Isn’t it you man,
Who pulled her to hell?
Isn’t it you man,
For whom she is a prostitute?

Hey GOD! , I confess,
On behalf of this gentle society,
I confess my sin to make her so.
Judge yourself man,
Who suits in that burning hell?
Isn’t that me, you, us, the lusty man?
Or that lady, who was born innocent?
But now to all of these society,
She is a prostitute…..

@Shreya - Now a days, SOCIAL MEDIA is booming like anything. About 60% (or maybe more) Indians are SOCIALIZED over WWW. So basically we should spread awarness first over SOCIAL MEDIA like Facebook, Twitter, etc ...

Your initiative of a dedicated domain for all the WOMAN who work 24x7 for the happiness of their family, is a great thought to start with. It's time for equal opportunity and respect for WOMAN as well.

You will find at least 1 out of 10 people who will support you for the cause. If not now, but later in the future, more than 5 out of 10 will support your cause, and that's for sure. Because, we are there because of our MOTHER. Respect WOMAN, Respect HUMANITY ...

Please keep doing the splendid work of spreading awarness to our RESERVED society ...

Comment by Mahesh Readdy

The prostitution word is not new, nor is this profession new, it is coming from ancient age.  A question arises, “ Why do Women accept this profession and men go to them?”

In reality, this “oldest profession” falls into several categories. Yes, there are the street walkers whose lives are awful. However, there are also those women who provide sexual favors in massage parlors, small hotels and out of their own apartments. At the end of the spectrum are those women who are escorts or professional sex workers. Often, they work for themselves and charge sums of money that can run into thousands of dollars for a night out. Sometimes their clients are politicians, sports figures, and Hollywood/Bollywood movie stars, businessmen.  

So this prostitution has taken a shape of Business, and those Dalals (middlemen) engaged in this, found it easiest way to become rich.

So we should start fight against these middlemen, who are pushing a woman into this darkness.

Why do women become sex workers, and why do men go to them?

The Women: Written by : Susannah Breslin

Let me preface this by saying I grew up in a well-to-do family. I had more opportunity and privilege than most, but the divorce of my parents in my first year of university ultimately drove me to completely check out of society.

In the beginning of my crack addiction I always swore to myself and to anyone who brought up the subject that I would never sell sex for money. Unfortunately, I was very naive and uninformed about the progression of addiction and I did not yet know what desperation felt like.

I do not remember my first trick, but I do remember many. I have had sex with as many as 12 men in a day. The busiest times were early in the morning when white men in business suits were on their way to work, or during lunch time when they could sneak off for a quickie.
