Mumbai: She has eyes but is not allowed to see the beauty of your society. She has a mind but is not free to nurture it. She has legs but she cannot run carefree on roads. She has hands but is not allowed to shake them with children playing in nearby park. She sleeps but fears to dream a better world for her.
The irony of life of ‘Daughter of a Sex worker’ is that they are loved by men, the same men who would not allow them to enter their society, into their world, but will go to theirs each night.
We all feel pity about then darkness that prevails in their life but none of us has the courage to lend them hands and pull them towards the light.
In a desperate bid to show this society its real face, this time entertainment industry has decided to voice their hearts out and bring out the complications of these little dreamers of a better fortune through a documentary.
While there are many web series being made about the sensitive topic, a latest one is a documentary that is being directed by debutant Viraf Phiroz Patel, who is famous for his role of 'Ashish Mehta' in a Star Plus show Naamkaran.

Based on the life of daughters of the prostitutes, the documentary will focus on how these children are denied educational rights just because of the profession their mothers are into.
While talking to Newstrack.com, Patel said, “Being made with a working title of Red Light Express Girls, the documentary will bring out the harsh reality that these children face in their day to day life.”

“The message that the play gives leaves the audience introspect themselves. We all have something or the other to say about them but no one really wants to help them leave their world of darkness,” the actor said.
Well, all we can say is ‘The devil is not that black as he is painted…’ and we hope that the initiatives like this will bring a positive change in the lives of these KRANTIKARI girls.
