Red light area
Posted January 22, 2008on:
As we went to the place I realized that it was just another neighbourhood and nothing sort of “red light area”. I had an impression from the movies with all the women hanging around, with lousy makeup and revealing clothes and loose comments. But nothing was like that. The man who had accompanied us was also nothing what I had expected him to be. He was a well dressed man with smooth behaviour. We were taken to one apartment and he disappeared somewhere, came with girls and demanded the payment beforehand.
But I was already out of my mind. Was sweating heavily and my mouth was dry. And when I saw those girls I felt worse. They might not be more than 15-16 years and looked so dove-like. I looked at my friends and saw the same feelings on their faces. Without another word we got up and left the place. We didn’t talk while coming back. Probably all of us were feeling lousy.Thank God we came away that day but till date innocent eyes of those girls still haunt me.
Life is so unfair to so many people and we keep on cribbing about trivial things in life!
