If you are into reading a dark, coming of age fiction, this book will take you through one of the most untouched realms of our society. The book will take you on a journey, touching lives of uncounted naïve women who are deprived of liberty and freedom to make life choices when they become victims of human-trafficking. This story will take you along the life of Aparajita, which translates to unconquerable in Sanskrit. She is an ordinary girl, whose dream to soar to the sky becomes out of the ordinary, when a fiasco ripped her hope and turned her dream into disgrace. Trapped in a house of ill repute, she faces the repercussions of something she has least control of. She is a little girl, who imagines that a generous world grants basic rights to everyone. Though, generosity, fidelity and liberty seem unfamiliar in the shimmering skyline of a megacity. The plot highlights how a restrained society handles the most fundamental right of education. The book then takes readers along Aparajita’s life, as she faces discrimination for her social and economic standing in the community. The Princess of a Whorehouse is all about how Aparajita discovers individuality and embraces humanity after chasing her dream with perseverance, despite being raised in the red light area of Delhi.
