Love is the only reality and it is not a mere sentiment. It is the ultimate truth that lies at the heart of creation.

How One Woman's Love Is Transforming Delhi's Brothels

How One Woman's Love Is Transforming Delhi's Brothels

Dec 12, 2014-- G.B. Road houses a total of 77 brothels. Home to 4,000 women, and 1,500 children, it is the largest red light district in Delhi, India. An area no woman would go voluntarily. Or so you'd think. But a few years ago, Gitanjali Babbar walked right in. She quite literally knocked on the brothel doors, walked up the narrow staircases, and talked to the people there -- sipped tea with the brothel owners, listened, laughed, and came to know the women as her sisters, their children as her family. Three and half years ago, she launched Kat-Katha, a nonprofit that's quietly transformed parts of G.B. Road's brothels into classrooms, community centers, and safe spaces for the women and their children to learn, explore creative arts, and come alive with a sense of connection, expression, and possibility.
