Pre- Arranged Marriage Deal

This little girl already wears the marriage ankle bracelet to show that she has been sold by her parents to another and to protect her from rape later down the line. Strange that India still practices old traditions. Then again it is all about economy and staying alive.

    The harsh reality in some parts of the world, unfortunately ... I hope that the future is in front of her on which she will decide for herself...

    She looks very intelligent...beyond her years. Hope she'll find a way when she's grown up to decide who's she going to marry, where she's going to live and how.

    Fingers crossed for this little girl and her future!
    She'll do well! I honestly hope ...
