Daughters of the Red Light: Coming of Age in Mumbai's Brothels (DAWNS Global Humanitarian Storytelling Book 2)Daughters of the Red Light: Coming of Age in Mumbai’s Brothels by Shanoor Seervai
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Shanoor first took up an assignment to understand the life in the Red Light District of Mumbai when she was graduating. She again got herself to look into the life as a journalist. She was much mature and knew how to go about.

A book that gives a very good insight into the Red Light district of Mumbai. It specifically highlights the life of a girl child growing up in the area.

The book ends in a positive note by highlighting the way Kranti, an NGO which works very differently with the girls from these areas and how one from these girls has been granted admission in one of the University in the US. See http://indiatoday.intoday.in/story/gi… for more details.
