Prerana, changing lives.

A person I am proud to have met is Priti Patkar

Recently, I was extremely happy to speak to one of the children of the prostituted women, who is married and well settled now thanks to Prerana’s efforts and her grit.

This got me thinking about Amir Khan’s Satyameva Jayate where Sunita Krishnan talks about prostitution, the oldest organised crime in the world and says “The most difficult hurdle is changing the mindsets of people”. Yes, we accept people who have committed many crimes but often do not accept the victims of crimes.. This has to change if our nation has to change.
