Lost, confused, broken and fearful tearless eyes had already ruined my day..
Should Bengali step out..? Why their Spring cooled down..?
Typical subcontinent political monopolies and games; among very poor helpless people
Short live in dignity is better than a long one in despair..
Hashi is a 17 yr old prostitute in a brothel in Tangail, a north eastern city of... Bangladesh.
In the picture she is embracing her 'husband', these men called 'lovers' and 'husbands' normally live outside the brothels, take money and sex from these young women in exchange for protection against the thugs in the local community - a male dominated culture.
Hashi earns 800 - 1000 taka daily, (9.75 - 12.19 U.S. $) daily, serving between 15 - 20 customers on a daily basis.
Hashi is one of the hundreds of mostly teenage sex workers living a painful life of exploitation in Kandapara slum' s brothels.
These young prostitute women who take Oradexon, a steriod used by farmers on their cattle.... in order to gain weight and look 'healthy' and more attractive to clients...
