It’s no secret that Varanasi is on every traveller’s bucket list for its beauty and culture. The videos of the prayer at the ghats and the beautiful Dev Deepawali celebrations made everyone feel like they knew and understood the city. But a new video from Blush Channel will change that perception.
The makers of the video go deep within the narrow lanes of Varanasi, and bring to light the oft-ignored incidents of human trafficking that have affected the city for many years now. While the survivor stories will give you goosebumps, the only consolation is seeing people like Ajeet and Manju, from the Guria Sansthan, continuing their fight against sex trafficking.
Banaras, one of the oldest cities in the world, the religious capital of India, also a city of Sex Trafficking. In this short film by Blush Originals, we hear of infants being abducted, gang – raped and injected with hormonal injections to become commercial sex workers. We hear of helpless mothers and ignorant police officers. We also hear of two people who are fighting the good fight, who will re-store your faith in humanity.
Guria, an organisation that has been wrangling for 14 years to rescue trafficked girls from the hands of the ruthless sex traffickers in the holy city of Banaras.
We urge you to raise your voice against this heinous trade. We urge you to save that one girl child, because she deserves to have a future. ,
