Trishala Born a Prostitute

Author Name: Sharmila Banerjee | Format: Paperback | Genre : Literature & Fiction | Other Details

Trishala, “Born A Prostitute”, tells the story of a young girl named Trishala, who is born in a community which is into Caste Based Prostitution. She was initiated into this profession when she was just 12 years old with the Nath-Utarna Ceremony, and sold to the highest bidder for the night. Since then, every night she had to entertain a new customer. Trishala had never experienced a world outside her village and had a deep longing for true love.

Trishala’s village Kashipur was the badlands between Madhya Pradesh and Uttar Pradesh, it is a dystopic underbelly, and a regressive crime infested matriarchal community.

Siddharta, a business tycoon with a dejected past, accidentally lands himself in Kashipur and crosses paths with Trishala, which awakens true love in her. At the same time, a fiery journalist Samera and an IPS officer Abhishek are investigating a spate of kidnappings in the same area. Destiny brings Sidharta, Samera and Abhishek together, as they find themselves entangled in a bloody feud between two rival gangs of Kashipur, a multi-million-dollar drug and human trafficking nexus, and a crime infested regressive community. How this colossal endeavour unfolds, and Trishala’s journey of realization and rebellion, forms the crux of the story.
