Came across this really poignant and troubled story of Indianna Mary Mayber. Born in Calcutta in 1863 and raised in Utah, US, only to become a prostitute named “Ina” over whom raged a political battle which was responsible for her “downfall”.

Lost in the tumult was the fact that she just was a 17-yr old girl who dreamed of going back home to India. (Full story  by Ardis E. Parshall in The Salt Lake Tribune)

Reading the story, one can’t help but feel saddened that this story repeats itself every day for millions of young women in brothels around the world.
