Talks Sunitha Krishnan Fights Sex Slavery

Sunitha Krishnan has dedicated her life to rescuing women and children from sex slavery, a multimillion-dollar global market. In this courageous talk, she tells three powerful stories, as well as her own, and calls for a more humane approach to helping these young victims rebuild their lives.

Why you should listen to her:

Each year, some two million women and children, many younger than 10 years old, are bought and sold around the globe. Impassioned by the silence surrounding the sex-trafficking epidemic, Sunitha Krishnan co-founded Prajwala, or “eternal flame,” a group in Hyderabad that rescues women from brothels and educates their children to prevent second-generation prostitution. Prajwala runs 17 schools throughout Hyderabad for 5,000 children and has rescued more than 2,500 women from prostitution, 1,500 of whom Krishnan personally liberated. At its Asha Niketan center, Prajwala helps young victims prepare for a self-sufficient future.

Krishnan has sparked India’s anti-trafficking movement by coordinating government, corporations and NGOs. She forged NGO-corporate partnerships with companies like Amul India, Taj Group of Hotels and Heritage Hospitals to find jobs for rehabilitated women. In collaboration with UN agencies and other NGOs, she established printing and furniture shops that have rehabilitated some 300 survivors. Krishnan works closely with the government to define anti-trafficking policy, and her recommendations for rehabilitating sex victims have been passed into state legislation.


“The sense that thousands and millions of children and young people are being sexually violated and that there’s this huge silence about it around me angers me.”

Beautiful Art – Thoughts

TRUE LOVE MEANS:

Find a guy who calls you beautiful instead of hot…

…who calls you back when you hang up on him…

…who will stay awake just to watch you sleep…

…wait for the guy who kisses your forehead…

…who wants to show you off to the world when you are in your sweats…

..who holds your hand in front of his friends…

…wait for the one who is constantly reminding you of how much he cares about you and how lucky he is to have you…

…wait for the one who turns to his friends and says, “…that’s her, or that’s him”…

Life Is Beautiful…

Nice Moral!!

An old man lived alone in Minnesota. He wanted to spade his potato

garden, but it was very hard work. His only son, who would have helped

him, was in prison. The old man wrote a letter to his son and mentioned

his situation:

Dear Son,

I am feeling pretty bad because it looks like I won’t be able to plant

my potato garden this year. I hate to miss doing the garden, because

your mother always loved planting time. I’m just getting too old to be

digging up a garden plot. If you were here, all my troubles would be

over. I know you would dig the plot for me, if you weren’t in prison.

……………………….Love, Dad

Shortly, the old man received this telegram: “For Heaven’s sake, Dad,

don’t dig up the garden!! That’s where I buried the GUNS!!”

At 4 a.m. the next morning, a dozen FBI agents and local police officers

showed up and dug up the entire garden without finding any guns.

Confused, the old man wrote another note to his son telling him what

happened, and asked him what to do.

His son’s reply was: “Go ahead and plant your potatoes,

Dad…………… It’s the best I could do for you from here.”

Moral:

NO MATTER WHERE YOU ARE IN THE WORLD, IF YOU HAVE DECIDED TO DO

SOMETHING DEEP FROM YOUR HEART, YOU CAN DO IT. IT IS THE THOUGHT THAT

MATTERS NOT WHERE YOU ARE OR WHERE THE PERSON IS.

-U never know when U r “finished”

Understand the value of Friend and Friendship!!

TWO FRIENDS WERE WALKING THROUGH THE DESERT.
DURING SOME POINT OF THE JOURNEY

THEY HAD AN ARGUMENT

AND ONE FRIEND

SLAPPED THE OTHER ONE

IN THE FACE.

THE ONE WHO GOT SLAPPED

WAS HURT, BUT WITHOUT

SAYING ANYTHING,

WROTE IN THE SAND:

TODAY MY BEST FRIEND

SLAPPED ME IN THE FACE.

THEY KEPT ON WALKING,

UNTIL THEY FOUND AN OASIS,

WHERE THEY DECIDED

TO TAKE A BATH .

THE ONE WHO HAD BEEN

SLAPPED GOT STUCK IN THE

MIRE AND STARTED DROWNING,

BUT THE FRIEND SAVED HIM.

AFTER HE RECOVERED FROM

THE NEAR DROWNING,

HE WROTE ON A STONE:

TODAY MY BEST FRIEND

SAVED MY LIFE.

THE FRIEND WHO HAD SLAPPED

AND SAVED HIS BEST FRIEND

ASKED HIM, “AFTER I HURT YOU,

YOU WROTE IN THE SAND AND NOW,

YOU WRITE ON A STONE, WHY?”

THE OTHER FRIEND REPLIED

“WHEN SOMEONE HURTS US

WE SHOULD WRITE IT DOWN

IN SAND WHERE WINDS OF

FORGIVENESS CAN ERASE IT AWAY.

BUT, WHEN SOMEONE DOES

SOMETHING GOOD FOR US,

WE MUST ENGRAVE IT IN STONE

WHERE NO WIND

CAN EVER ERASE IT.”

LEARN TO WRITE

YOUR HURTS IN

THE SAND AND TO

CARVE YOUR

BENEFITS IN STONE.

THEY SAY

IT TAKES A MINUTE TO FIND A SPECIAL PERSON,

AN HOUR TO APPRECIATE THEM,

A DAY TO LOVE THEM,

BUT THEN AN ENTIRE LIFE TO FORGET THEM.

SEND THIS PHRASE TO

THE PEOPLE YOU’LL NEVER

FORGET.

IF YOU DON’T

SEND IT TO ANYONE,

IT MEANS YOU’RE IN A

HURRY AND THAT YOU’VE

FORGOTTEN YOUR FRIENDS.

TAKE THE TIME TO LIVE!

With Loads of Luv to All
