Western couples pay a young woman to have their child and then fly home with This is a read that at times is uite magnificent It is a story that attempts to blow the doors ff the myth that is

way I felt I was learning without being info dumped uponIt is a story that really hammers home a message about the way in which women can be treated in India with the brutality violence and rapes
