When one first meets Anita, you see a shy 16-year-old, with a glimmer of hope in her eyes. Anita belongs to a community known to send their girls into the sex trade as soon as they hit puberty. Anita’s mother is a commercial sex worker and so is her grandmother. Anita may be shy at first but is absolutely certain that she doesn’t want to follow her family’s traditional practice. She is the first girl from the community to have gone beyond grade 8. But this wasn’t easy. When she was about to start grade 9, her family members insisted on stopping her education in order to send her to the red-light area of Mumbai. Anita, however, is a promising student and she is determined to pursue her education to become a police officer and help fight for women and children’s rights.
