An eye-opening discussion on child trafficking

Tribune News Service

Amritsar, September 28

Phulkari, a leading women’s organisation in Amritsar held an online session based on the book ‘Jennifer’ in collaboration with the Majha House. Author of the book Nandita Puri was in conversation with Enakshi Ganguly, Co-Founder of Haq Centre for Child Rights, New Delhi, and Phulkari executive members Shireen Kumar, Preeti Gill, and Anuradha Bhatia.

The conversation focused on the real life story of a young girl Jennifer, a victim of illegal child trafficking which thrust her into the nightmarish world of sexual abuse, drugs and crime. Through Jennifer’s story, the larger picture of child trafficking and its ramifications were discussed.

Deepa Swani, President of Phulkari, said, “Phulkari aims to bring about reforms through meaningful discussion. This session closely looked at the ugly truth of child trafficking and made it more hard hitting for the viewers.”

Preeti Gill said, “The session came alive for the audience with many of the real life persons who are in the book actually coming up with intricacies of the problem.”

Phulkari is considered the premier think tank for women of the city. It is engaged in several philanthropic programmes, including cancer awareness, education for the lesser privileged and environmental awareness. It provides a space for meaningful exchange of ideas.

The Majha House is a unique platform for literature, culture, arts and ideas in Amritsar which is inclusive and encourages all shades of opinions.
