Respect to Mahananda: A story of Courage and power of Human Spirit

Though it is not easy for everyone to start a life after losing everything your dignity, respect and life-in-short. This small story teaches that these words are nothing more than words.

In South India there is a tradition of “dedicating” a girl  to worship and service of a deity or a temple for the rest of her life. Mahananda was given to temples as Devdaasi. She was traded as Sex worker at a very early age. It isn’t a story of helplessness and tragedy; it’s a story of the power of the human spirit. 

She had to go for an abortion after a 5 months pregnancy. Even after so much she came out of the whole SHIT and has managed to live a respectable life. And guess what she is an Entrepreneur now, what if she can’t even pronounce entrepreneur or what if she does not know what it means.
