Red light area
Posted January 22, 2008on:
It was getting late and most of the colleagues had already gone off. Only three of us who were really close to Ansh were left. Suddenly, out of blue, krish floated the idea of visiting the red light area as it was the last “aazaad“ night for Ansh. We tried to protest but he didn’t give heed. And we were all novice in this area. We mustered the courage and went along with krish. He said he knew somebody who can take us to the place. Some how I was not feeling good about the whole idea but went along.
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.
Life is so unfair to so many people and we keep on cribbing about trivial things in life!
