Pulkit Bhatia forms a special bond with women and child survivors of sex trafficking

Pulkit Bhatia, an IT professional and part-time social worker from Faridabad, was so moved by Prajwala's work, that he began celebrating Raksha Bandhan with the women and children the organization works with. Prajwala is a Hyderabad-based organization that works with survivors of sex trafficking and exploitation.

Like a good brother would, he sent them gifts—Rs 22,700 in the first year and Rs 10,000 in the second. Here, he speaks of this new brother-sister bond.

"On your episode, I saw the wonderful work that Prajwala does. It is really heartening to see people like Sunitha Krishnan. I really feel blessed to be born in such a country.

What really touched me was what Dr Krishnan said—how the children of these survivors are not accepted by society. So, I have been celebrating Raksha Bandhan with my sisters at Prajwala for last two years.

Though I haven't met them personally, I have received beautiful rakhis from them and we have been exchanging emails. It has been an enriching experience for me and I really consider myself blessed with this love."
