Forgotten Children's

Madhyapradesh, India

Banchras, a community for which prostitution is a way of life. The eldest daughter of the family usually becomes a prostitute and earns for the family till she becomes old. Then another younger girl takes over.

A section of the community – once a nomadic tribe forced to give their girls to local chieftains – fiercely guards the tradition, which gives them the luxury of feeding off their daughters without doing anything.
