child trafficking and child servitude, urges viewers not to look the other way when confronted with the evils of child prostitution, is going viral. The video titled #dontlookaway, makes such a powerful point that it has taken the social media by storm.
The two minute video starts with a young girl trying, to cross a busy evening road. She is dressed in a floral dress,complete with matching slippers and accessories. Just another young girl, innocently, trying to emulate adults.
But once she crosses the road and steps into a car, dread writ large on her face, it becomes clear that she is not a child enjoying a normal childhood. She is being prostituted.
India has close to 1.2 million child prostitutes, a statistic that is only going upwards with every passing year. The video is a rude awakening and a fervent plea to stop this inhuman practice that robs young girls off their innocence and childhood.
