It is so sickening

I was shocked, when my friend told this incident some time back
They both were sitting in adjacent seats, in that hi-tech bus (One girl in her early twenties and other lady in her mid forties).Though they are strangers, soon they become acquainted with each other. The older lady (let’s call her anitha) took ticket for both even though other one protested (priya) .After an hour anitha got a phone call and she moved towards the cabin where driver and conductor used to sit. Priya noticed that, anitha were talking to conductor and few passengers seated in front row, but she just ignored it. When the bus reached Cochin anitha told priya “our stop has come, let’s get down”. She looked at her puzzled and told her “no no, I will be getting down at tiruvala”.Suddenly conductor and few of the passengers came to the spot and asked her “go fast with your mother girl, we are already late”. She didn’t understand anything and she told them “this lady is not my mom”. After a few minutes argument, Suddenly she got a idea and she handed over her ID card to conductor and asked anitha, “if you are my mother, then tell what is my official name “.Anitha’s face turned pale white after hearing this question, Suddenly one quails van sudden beaked aside the bus and at the same time anitha pushed the conductor aside and rushed towards the car. She got inside the car and it flied away. Everything happened in few seconds. Every one in the bus looked at priya in shock. They got an idea about what happened. Conductor and others apologized to her and told her what happened .Actually that lady approached the conductor and others and told them that “priya is a mentally unstable girl and she is taking her to psychiatrist. So she requested them to help her, if she protests to go with her”. Though they boarded the bus from same station, talking each other for a long time and also coz anitha took ticket for both conductor didn’t suspect them. She shocked after hearing his and thanked god for saving her from such a big trouble.

Though it happened long time back (according to my friend), I couldn’t believe, an incident like this happened in kerala.
Probably our country is developing in a sky rocketing speed. Probably India is shining. But it is disturbing to see that we can’t able to control the increase in number of human trafficking. I happened to read an article in a newspaper that, From south India alone, around 8000 girls were missing on last year Seems they were trafficked for the purpose of forced labor, commercial sexual exploitation(which includes prostitution, pornography, sex tourism etc), forced marriage and the latest is for jihad .According to the officials, in many of the cases, the girls are cheated by there ‘boyfriends’. (I think in this case, May be parents of youngsters also play a role in preventing this? Like by checking who is there children’s friend? By contacting there institution authorities often (how are they doing there) etc).

Seems, it is the second or third most profitable industry used by organized crime after drugs and guns and also it is a multi-billion dollar industry. I just feel pity about those girls, like after seeing some stupid movies, serials and after reading some b-graded novels, and by believing thats life and flying away from home with some idiots.Once they realsise there mistake,that will be too late and they will be in chains of some wicked forces ,that can’t be easily broken.
I don’t know where the problem lies. I don’t know what the solution is for this or will this be alright in near future. But I guess if we deny using there end products (I’m not mentioning what is that here), we can control this big curse up to a extend. I really don’t know what to write about this.

Trivia: Happened to see this movie (Trade) few weeks back. A very touching and racy thriller, about a brother’s ‘mad race’ to rescue his little sister, who is kidnapped by a human trafficking racket (Click here for trailer). Strongly recommended

    I emailed this link to many others… this incidence was very scary!! Will watch the trailer now… the girl had presence of mind!! Shows we should not interfere if a girl is refusing to go with someone, she should never be forced without total verification, like the Pscichiatrist’s details, girls ID, woman’s details…

    Anish : This incident was beyond my head.I couldn’t believe a incident like this happened.yeahh the girl was smart and may be her loved ones prayers saved her.
    Actually because of lack of time, i didn’t able to research about it(human trafficking) properly.What i wrote here is based on the information i got from some popular newspapers and magazines.In fact , it is far more scarier than what i wrote here. Unfortunately our TV channels prefer ‘sensational news of celebrities’ to these kinda sensitive issues

      @ Hi-tech brothel —- Solilo last month one investigation article came in malyala manorama.I got shocked after reading that 😐 .Seems the girls were supplied by this Hi-tech racket based on demand(like school girl,college girl,housewife,executive etc and also north/south/northeast,that too pricing starts from 15000 for one night something like that) in metros(if you can read Malayalam,then i will try to get the links for you).Are we loosing something ? , i don’t know

    Its appalling, hideous, outrageous and frightful as it is sickening. I read about this incident a few months back and it sends a chill down your spine to think about your sister or daughter being in the place of that young lady. What protection does our society offer to the pristine womanhood out country has always been proud about?

    The Govt vows to do everything possible about this human trafficking but there seems to be no visible waves yet. And remember, this incident just reveals the crest point of the tip of the huge iceberg. It will just be frightening to see the real prevalence of the problem of eloping women and children. The parents now-a-days should have an eye and year on all sides, otherwise the blood-thirsty vultures in our society takes just a moment to snatch your kid from under your nose..

    The kind of world we live in! I sincerely hope this happens to no child, no girl, no parent. We can only pray, and hope thus social degeneration stops at some point.

      Anish,You said it, the social degenration–that is the real problem we are facing now.Latest electronic inventions like mobile cam, laptops etc are big blessing to the man kind.But as they say,every coin as two side,some mutants are using its evil side to make the rest of the peoples life miserable.
      Recently,I read in a magazine that percentage of eloping teenage girls are increasing .I don’t know ,whether do they have something called common sense or not.The parents should have good control over there kids.
      Yeahh only thing we can do is pray and hope that it will be alright in near future

    So this also means that the girls in our God’s Own Country have this tendency to be overly friendly with strangers after they have spoken sweet for a while. The much required alertness goes missing somwhere.

      I’m not sure about that.What i feel is unlike others, mallu girls are not that open to strangers.But anyways they should be more bold

    Wow! Scary. The situation was not so bad when we were growing up. It is just getting worse as time goes by. How is the average Malayali girl to feel safe? The new and improved techniques these people keep coming up with!

      First of all welcome here, Dreamer 🙂 ,
      Yeah exactly when we were growing up, situation were far better,the things were getting worse in recent years (probably for last two years).It is not about malyali girls,no one is safe.In fact kerala is better,actually we have few good medias to expose everything.thats why we feel like we are worser than others.yeahh as they say,every coin has two sides.Unfortunatily other side of our latest technologies are too hot to tolerate
