The pain people go through to have a perfect life is unthinkable; however, in a country like India and Nepal, having a decent lifestyle is merely impossible. From the beatings to pleading for life, India is considered to be the fourth most dangerous places for women to live. In fact, after sixty-seven years of independence, fifty percent of India is in poverty causing families to sell their daughters off to prostitution. In the novel Sold by Patricia McCormick, narrated by Lakshmi (thirteen year old girl) told her story about being tricked into prostitution. Wanting to escape, Lakshmi couldn't, knowing the fact that she was going to save her family from poverty (false statement). Many of these situations happens in India and many other countries. India has almost one third of the world's poor; as a result, poverty is the main reason for women to be traded as sex slave-- that makes poverty the main reason why girls are being sold. Considering the fact that India’s weather is changeable, it is most likely contributed to the poverty India is experiencing. India has the third largest HIV epidemic in the world. Innocent children born in brothels live in denial about their mother's statuses. Women are often petrified after they are rescued; in other cases, a woman might forever be isolated from the outside world. India faces many issues in today’s society.
