Born Into Brothels: Calcutta’s Red Light Kids

I just watched this fascinating documentary giving you a peek into the lives of the children of Prostitutes in India. It is so unbelievably sad that just being born into a certain family, stipulates your entire life! It makes me eternally grateful for my circumstances in life. I often think of who I would be if I was born into the same family just 3 generations back and I don’t think I would have had the chance to be me. Cultures and times dictate behaviours and create norms and often it is hard to relate to and understand those that you are unaccustomed to. Do you ever think about how different your life would be if you were born in a different place at a different time? It is hard to comprehend that these children were given an opportunity to break free of their suppression and their families couldn’t let them.

I was very touched by the Directors Ross Kauffman and Zana Briski , what an incredible woman to spend years of her life living in that red light district and fighting for those children. She is a real inspiration and I hope by watching this documentary it shows you the power of a persons will to do good. She uses an art-form to give those children hope and encouragement of a brighter future ❤

I watch a documentary almost every day, I will share my favourite ones with you more often as I believe they are so eye-opening and a lot better investment of time then watching Celebrity Big Brother :p haha
