    The women and children of New Delhi's G.B. Road are afraid to tell others where they are from. They live in the Indian capital’s biggest red-light district. The mothers are sex workers. Many say they were trafficked and forced into the sex trade with no way to escape.

  • The basketball prodigy

    • Documentary DP

    Insha Bashir was just 15 when she met with a life-threatening accident. Though Insha survived, she suffered a fatal spinal cord injury which rendered her paralyzed from the waist down. Hailing from Budgam, she slipped into depression for five years. Confined to a wheelchair, she thought that it was the end of her world. Her parents admitted her to a rehab center at Bemina, Srinagar to recover from depression. Life took a turn for good when she met some paraplegic basketball players. Inspired by them, she decided to give basketball a shot. And as they say, there was no looking back. She has won several national awards and represented India in the US.

Tariq Ahmad Patloo, a houseboat owner thought of the concept of floating ambulance service when he tested positive for COVID-19 two months back and needed help to visit a hospital. “At that time when I tested positive for coronavirus, nobody came forward to help me except my friend who provided me a boat to reach the hospital. It hurt me a lot and I decided to make the special floating ambulance on boat aimed to help thousands of dwellers who are living in houseboat,” he told The Kashmir Monitor

    • Documentary DP

    The difficult lives of sex workers at Delhi’s GB Road became worse during COVID-19. “Since the beginning of the COVID-19 epidemic, we have been too scared to go to the hospital. Doctors ask us to do medical tests but we don’t have the money for them,” one of the women said. “I have stones and to do ultrasound but I don’t have the money. I have just been lying around. The test takes money. I don’t have money. Since I got to this place I have not gone to meet my parents. How can I? They will ask us a thousand questions. How will I answer them? So I don’t go.”
