Now that the context is settled, let's focus on the article. The scene took place in Kolkata that is the third most populous city in India with more than 14 million inhabitants. Also known as “City of Joy” or “City of Palaces”, it is the cultural capital of India, and the principal commercial and education center of East India.
However, despite that pleasant presentation made concerning India and Kolkata, there still are issues to point out. Indeed, this article deals with child trafficking, rape, corruption, and women devaluation. To sum up the press article: it is about a baby, that has been sold twice in eight months, as tells the title. The mother, that is only 16 years old, was lured by Berra (the baby's father) in order to have physical relation with him. Afterwards, she got pregnant: Bera took her to Contai while telling her they will get married. Once there, she realized he already had a wife, with children. He sent her to a nursing home, and forced her to give up on adoption, and sent her to a nursing home where he sold the baby to a doctor (Suman Haldar), for RS 90,000 that represents a bit more than 1,200€. But the story doesn't stop here. The doctor sold again the baby, when his wife gave birth to a boy: they decided to separate from the baby, because it was a girl.
That appalling story is unfortunately common in India. Probably not the fact that the baby was sold twice, but children trafficking, rape, corruption, and that way to treat women. These subjects are heading Indian's news, everyday.
