Vandana changing an old age tradition

August 3rd, 2020

The fabric of our society is what shapes us. Traditions and cultures of our ancestors can shape our future. In some societies, some old practices had held people and even communities back from progress. In the village of Mainahalli near Koppal, India, a large portion of its communities belong to the lower caste system. Some members of these communities are Devadasis. These are women and girls who engage in sex work as their livelihood, following an age old tradition.
