Rakhi Utsav

New Light celebrated Raksha Bandhan (Rakhi) in the darkest lanes of Kalighat to promote communal harmony on 25th August. Rakhi's were tied on each other's wrists as a show of solidarity. Over 50 women from the red light community in Kalighat participated in the event. The event helped remove social stigma for the women in the profession.
We organized the event with the help and participation of Rakhi Radiance Chapter III, who for the past 3 years have been bringing smile on the faces of these women.
