A known stranger

Lekshmi, Fathima, Aliya or Clara, I don’t know her name is and what I suppose to call her. But as usual I saw her standing in front of that shopping complex with a fake smile, may be expecting her so called ‘friend’ . Her pretty blue eyes looks a bit tired and sad. The pain which radiates from her eyes made her appear more beautiful. She put a thick shade of some cheap red lipstick and her skirt was struggling to kiss her knees. Many people who passed her gave her a disgusting and nasty look. But she was still standing there ignoring them all or pretended like she hasn’t seen any of those. By the time a gentle man approached her and they had a chat for couple of minutes and both of them eventually got inside in his car and

 He touched me and tried to kiss my neck. I reluctantly and helplessly let him to do what ever he wants. A fake smile flashed on my face for him. As always I kept my mind plain, blank and Act as just a piece of hundred pound flesh for helping him to put down his booming lust. I pretended like I’m enjoying his nasty smell mixed with alcohol and his perspiration. When he kissed me, it reminded me my little brother’s good bye kiss and a ray of memories flashed through my mind.

                               Let me call myself Indhu. As everyone I came to this country with lot of dreams. For better life, my little brother’s education, mom’s treatment. But very next moment when I alighted the airport  my ‘uncle’ took my passport and I was locked in a small room in thatapartment for few days with few girls. First few days I resisted the ‘visitor’s’ who came to bid for my flesh and I wept for help for days, resisted to eat food. I couldn’t even think about killing myself, when the pleasant smile of my little brother and mom’s face came to my mind. Finally
I helplessly gave up everything like other girls in my room. Now I don’t have anything to loose. Initially I wanted to take revenge on those beasts.But what a helpless person like me can do. But I wish I can, At least to prevent the formation of another Indhu’s like me. Don’t know. But I too have hope,at least for a better life for my family.

By the time when I was about to get out from the shop she came back to the same place like nothing had happened. She tried to straighten her shabby hair and wrinkles in her clothes and started expecting for her next ‘friend’. When I passed her she flashed a smile on me and I just smiled back and walked away.  I don’t know why she is doing this. For what she is doing
this? May be for a meal or better life for her sibling’s or to find money for the treatment of her husband. May be they don’t know what she is doing for supporting them. But in case if they come to know also they mayn’t blame her. How can they?  By this time some should have approached her and moved away. I don’t know. Why should I care? She is not anyone of me .Just a tresspasser. Yeah why should I care

It is so sickening Part – 2

There are some inventions which made the life of human kind more interesting, happening and simple. Among that two main things are Internet and cell phone. I’m damn sure majority of people reading this post can’t even think about a life with out these essentials. Out of the both Cam Cell phone is a wonderful invention. It gave the option for us to snap the beautiful moments of our day to day life. But as they say, every coin as two sides, these two things made lots of people’s life miserable also. Few days back, I read this incident in a newspaper (which prompted me to write this post)
She(30 something) treated that two teenage (17 year) twin brothers like, her on brothers (they were also her husband’s distant relatives).So she gave them full freedom in her house. One fine day, one of her relative called her up and told her nude pic was circulating in that area. After seeing those shocking snaps she fainted and her husband filed a case in the police station. With in hours they caught the twins and they admitted everything. Actually while she were in shower room, they snapped her with there cell phone and circulated it among there friends.
I don’t know what to call them. Anyways they screwed up there future and there parents dreams and also spoiled an innocent lady’s honor. This is just one other incident. Like this lots of nasty incidents are happening almost everyday in everywhere. I heard about another incident recently. Unlike the previous one, here they paid big price cause of a small carelessness.
This dude was really working his ass off in Middle East. He took a few snaps of his wife (in compromising position) in his cell with her permission (she was staying with his parents in his home town). He thought during those lonely and hopeless days in desert, those snaps will give some refreshing memories about the beautiful moments in his life .But this idiot forget to deactivate his Blue tooth and somehow some heartless vultures got this snap and they started blackmailing him. Finally to settle it and destroying all the snaps, he paid them nearly 5 lakh’s. Just imagine what he paid for his small carelessness. His peace of mind, honor, and not to mention, a big chunk of his hard earned saving.
What to do, we are living in a bad world. A few insane perverts insane act make our society pathetic. Probably if we are a little careful, alerted, we can avoid a few unfortunate incidents like this. if you feel that there is something wrong with a persons action with his cell phone, camera (no matter if you are in public, train, bus\railway station, hospital etc), then never hesitate to ask and check his\her cell phones \camera .unfortunately if your fake profile created in any websites (by someone) or you are snapped by some perverts, Then never hesitate to complain the nearest cyber cell. Now days most of the states have an active and efficient cyber cell, they can easily trace the persons responsible for this or at least they can delete your profiles and pictures. As anish commented in my previous post, at present we can only pray, and hope this social degeneration stops at some point.

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
