 Lot of Prostitutes to Improve

The Supreme Court in India has cited instances from literature to focus on the traumatic life of prostitutes and the responsibility of governments to help them find an alternative life style.

With poverty driving them into a life of sexual and other kinds of physical abuse, they need sympathy from society, commented Justices Markandey Katju and Gyan Sudha Misra. They also directed both the Central and the state governments to introduce vocational training programs as well as rehabilitation procedures so that they can live a life of dignity that is their right under the Constitution of India.

The Supreme Court has also directed the governments to submit compliance reports periodically  so that the actions they take could be monitored and regulated.

The Supreme Court's mandatory recommendations were made after Budhadev Karmakar was given life sentence for battering a prostitute to death in 1999, in Kolkatta.

More than a decade later comes the recompense, to some measure, these unfortunate women had been waiting for.
