Bangladesh and Nepali Girls are Slaves and Traded as a Commodity in India

Officially the slavetradeis banned in India for that matter all over the world. But the laws that exist on paper are flouted as the guiding principle is poverty. As with all trade acommodity sells when buyers areavailable. It is a classic case of need coupled with supply and demand. Slave markets haven’t really gone away and they exist in varying degrees from Africa to Asia. In India there is a flourishing slave market for girls from Nepal and Bangladesh. Both these nations are impoverished and thus easy prey to this nefarious trade.
I have pointed out one of the commodities in great demand is young girls from Bangladesh and Nepal. Great poverty in these 2 nations has spawned a trade in girls. Nepalese girls fetch a higher price as they are fair and considered better than Bangladesh girls, who are darkish. Given the fetish in the sub continent for fairness, it is obvious that Nepali girls fetch a higher price.
The price of a girl also depends on age and other factors. Virgins are the highest priced. What I write is a fact.The market for Nepal girls is at Siliguri in North Bengal. I was able to visit this bazaar where the girls are traded. Men folk from Nepal actively sell the girls. A BEAUTIFUL Nepali virgin can fetch a very high price. It could touch 50 thousand rupees. Once a girl , the buyer can keep her as maid, bed mate, maid or anything. He can also sell her later. Many are forced into prostitution. Girls from Bangladesh are more in number and cheaper. Generally they are however considered more loyal. Small illegal bazaars exist close to Kolkata. The slave trade has really not gone away
