A woman of Kamathipura brothel shows her henna tattos. The red light of Mumbai is one of the biggest in India. / Una trabajadora del sexo en Kamathipura, el barrio rojo más antiguo de Mumbai y el segundo más importante de Asia, muestra los tatuajes de henna en sus manos. Kamathipura se origina en la época de la India colonial, en el siglo XIX, con el fin de dar placer a las tropas británicas. En la actualidad el número de trabajadoras sexuales ha disminuido considerablemente, porque han emigrado a otras zonas más prósperas. Una minoría ha conseguido abandonar la prostitución, gracias a la intervención de numerosas entidades sociales que se han volcado en ayudar a este colectivo, que vive en condiciones de esclavitud en pleno siglo XXI.

Mina married at 11 years old. Later her husband died in an accident, becoming a widow. She lives with her three children in Dindoshi slum, in a little room.

At the outskirts of Mumbai, there are many orphanages that host girls rescued from families that could not take care of them.
