The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has changed the way of living of many people. Notably, many sectors got affected due to the crisis as people are finding it difficult to survive during these tough times. Amidst all, sex workers have also faced a lot of trouble due to the lockdown and pandemic. Hence, TV actor Shalin Bhanot recently visited Mumbai’s famous red-light area, known as Kamathipura to help more than 1300 sex workers.
The Roadies 2 fame provided ration and basic necessities such as soaps and masks to over 100 families of sex workers in Mumbai’s Kamathipura. While interacting with them, Shalin Bhanot found out that they have been soliciting for Rs 50. He shared a couple of videos from Kamathipura on his Instagram handle and captioned the post as, “I suddenly fell desolate & bereft as my car made way into the tiny lanes of Mumbai’s damned Kamathipura. During the second lockdown, I felt restless & wanted to put my able self to greater good. There is no dearth of generosity & humanity in this era we all call Kalyug. There are civilians moving moutains & helping the needy. Also emerged a massiah in @sonu_sood bhaiya who inspired us to walk the less traveled path. I did my research & learnt how our red-light area wasn’t fortunate enough to get anyone’s attention. I got through one social worker from the area. When he mentioned women solicit themselves for as low as Rs. 50. I was numb. I wanted to get people together, raise funds for them but they always say, lead by example. So I did whatever little I could. Learnt about their immediate needs & tried to help about 100 families. When I was just about to take leave, some women ran up to me, their eyes moist, they tied their dupatta for a mask, they joined hands & I haven’t felt this hopeless in the longest time. I’ll try my best but I also need you guys to come forward & help me. I’m genuinely looking for suggestions. Can we try to save our women?” (sic)
