India a source, transit nation and destination for child prostitution and sex trade with more than One Million child prostitutes in India.
INDIA - Around 1.2 million children are believed to be involved in prostitution in India.
According to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) human trafficking is a major problem and they believe that 90 percent of human trafficking in India is "intra-country"
According to Mr. Ashwani Kumar, head of Central Bureau of Investigation on trafficking said, that India has occupied a "unique position" as what he called a source, transit nation and destination of this trade.

“Prostitution in pilgrim towns, exploitation through sex tourism and pedophilia are some of the “alarming trends” that have emerged in recent years in India, it noted.”
Good grief! Where have these people been.
Pre-pubescent girls trained as Hindu temple prostitutes is a tradition as old as India itself. Not exactly new, just modernized.
It would probably be a safe bet to claim that there are several times more than a million young teens in America who are prostituting themselves for petty favours from the porn kings.
so now everyone can be a temple priest! they call it progress. I call it disgusting. No more telecommuniciations jobs for you! They obviously use their new found wealth to their own destruction.
yikes! let’s hope that is not true - although porn and pornographic language is indeed flourishing here to a sickening degree
Simply take a look at the number of high-school students who venture forth into such areas. Many enter the trade by prostituting themselves to fellow students, first.
look at how they call each other “ho” and “pimp” - the rap/hip hop music has glamorized it ... and kim kardashian with her “adult film” ... sex, money, and fame - it’s easier than college right? sick.
“The U.S. Department of Justice estimates that between 100,000 and 3 million American kids under age 18 are involved in prostitution and they’re often targeted by sexual predators.”
yep sounds like our government - “between 100,000 and 3 million” they can’t do anything accurately when it comes to big numbers
“They obviously use their new found wealth to their own destruction.”
Very profound, perhaps more than you think. All the nations of history have grown more corrupt as wealth increased and could be acquire with relative ease. America, I’m afraid, is victim of this perpetual fault as well. Toynbee is justified again.
I don’t think the customers of the prostitutes are those “telecommunications” types. I’ve read reports earlier, and the biggest sustainer for prostitution in that part of the world is truck drivers. The brothels are along highways, hidden inside lodges and small towns.
I’m stunned. 1 million! in a nation of 1 billion, that’s like 0.1%
well, it has because there is too much TV. TV dominates our lives and not just in the USA. Toss out your TV (or at least use it just for DVDs which you control) and the family will be a lot better — more time for real family life
I know — can you believe it, 0.1%! Or, since you consider that 50 to 60% of India’s population is below 20, that means that 0.4% (assuming half of those are females) are child prostitutes! Out of 250 to 300 million girls, 1 million are child prostitutes — horrific!
