Driving through dirty lanes, junky roads, isolated places, almost late evening…I was wondering where Gateway of India is …I asked “Uncle…Where are we going he just said – Aarti don’t worry you are safe, just trust me…” I had no option but to trust him, I was new in the city, suddenly the taxi stopped...my uncle told the driver to get down and told me that I just had to co-operate as he will change my life forever , I did not understand or realize what he was saying, but it was not to late when he started touching me, hugging me, his grip was just becoming more and uncomfortable for me, I tried to free myself, I shouted , I yelled but there was no one who could hear me, except the taxi driver who did not care , My uncle forced himself on me, pushed himself so hard on me that I lay half alive, but to my sudden shock I found the taxi driver tearing the tits and bits of me…my dreams were crushed and tattered …I lay there knowing I’m buried for life…
Aarti had come with her uncle for Mumbai Dharshan, and that to without informing her parents, she thought if she did, they won’t allow her and sees the darker side of life. There are ‘n’ numbers of innocent children like her, who are traded everyday for sexual purpose, raped and thrown on railway tracks, used to make blue films, top class child prostitution… A customer may negotiate an exchange directly with a child prostitute in order to receive sexual gratification, or through an intermediary (pimp) who controls or oversees the prostitute’s activities for profit. The provision of children for sexual purposes may also be an object of exchange between adults. Many children are prostituted over the Internet with the use of webcams to facilitate this abuse, and pornography may be linked to the prostitution. Children are often forced by social structures and individual agents into situations in which adults take advantage of their vulnerability and sexually exploit and abuse them.
Why??? Can we voice this??? I know we can’t completely stop it, but can we care that it does not happen to innocent children, atleast save one innocent child from the abuses and happenings, as it happens without predictions. It is so scary to think that an innocent child is being used for lure business.
Let’s join and save an Aarti from being “buried for life”
End Child Prostitution, Child Pornography and Trafficking of Children for Sexual Purposes
