Children of women who are forced in the darkness of prostitution have to suffer unnecessarily and watching the exploitation of their mothers makes them adopt the path of crime and intoxication. In order to pull these children out of this vicious circle and to earn a respectable position for them in the society, Chaitanya Mahila Mandal in Maharashtra’s Pune city has started a night crèche near the Red Light Area. The mandal is doing a commendable work of sowing the seeds of sanskars among these children and showing them the path of enlightenment. Evil such as prostitution is still prevalent in the Indian society. Everybody is quite aware about the exploitation of women engaged in this practice. However an important aspect of this problem is often ignored and that is the children of these women. Nobody enters this profession by will; some critical circumstances force women in this well of darkness. The path for exit is permanently closed for them; however their innocent children are also unnecessarily forced to take a dip into the same well without any cause. In spite of having the feelings of a mother, these women cannot do anything for the upliftment of their children. As soon as the evening time approaches, these children have to face a lot of hardships. Night grows more darker for them after witnessing the exploitation of their mothers. When they need their mother’s lap for sleeping, they are forced to sleep in the open. Some of them often develop bad habits and are addicted towards intoxication. This causes an adverse effect on the minds of these children and they are treated as downtrodden in the society.Moved by this plight, Chaitanya Mahila Mandal visited Red Light Area in Pune to take the account of their problems and decided to start a night crèche for the children of these women. This exemplary work of pulling these children out of this morass and enlightening their lives was accomplished by Jyoti Pathaniya. While managing a huge business firm in Chakan Industrial Area near Pune, she decided to stand firm behind these downtrodden children from the society. She initiated the work with some like minded women and thus was laid the foundation for Chaitanya Mahila Mandal.Chaitanya Mahila Mandal situated near Bhosri in Pune initiated various welfare projects for the upliftment of such women and their children. The project was started in the name Utkarsh Prakalp. Karyakartas started rendering their service regularly from 6 pm to 9 am. They started visiting Red Light Area and convinced women to send their children to the crèche. Everyday, karyakartas go there and bring these children along with them. After bringing them to crèche, they are given a nutritious diet. Various motivational stories are told and games are also taught. They get the motherly love here and hence they have now developed an emotional attachment with the karyakartas.Good sanskars are given to children for their all round development by keeping them away from the reach of Red Light Area. Mandal karyakartas are always eager to make efforts so that these children can also lead a normal life like the other ones. Even if the problems of these children have been solved, karyakartas want that such women should permanently get rid of this evil. Hence the mandal plans to impart self employment industrial training to such women in near future. Thus they will get economic strength and a respectable position in the society. Plans are also in the offing for opening a day crèche for the children of such women and also for the kids of underprivileged women who have to work hard for earning bread for their families.
