West Bengal Fisheries Department’s food park in Kolkata (Source: Express photo by Subham Dutta) Related News In a quiet corner of the Nalban Food Park in Salt Lake’s Sector-V a group of women are whispering excitedly as they put on their gloves and disposable caps to learn the art of filleting fish Aged between 30-40 years of age they are among 30 sex-workers who have come from Sonagachi Asia’s largest red light area to find new avenues and perhaps a stable source of income The women have signed up for a workshop on methods to cut various kinds of fish a Bengali staple which will be supplied to various food pavilions across Kolkata during the upcoming Durga Puja festival Govinda Das their middle-aged teacher demonstrates the right technique to handle knives warning the women that a small lapse in attention could hurt them Within moments Dipti* 33 nicks her thumb while slicing a fillet of Basa While the trainers rush to attend to her wounds she cranes her neck to watch Govinda work even as she winces in pain Within moments she is back at the table ready to cut the Basa with a bandaged thumb “This will not deter me from learning something that could give me a better opportunity in life” she says smiling Expert Govinda Das and his assistant showing the women how to cut fillet from fish (Source: Express photo by Subham Dutta) Under Govinda’s tutelage the women are sweating it out almost 6 hours a day Their stipend depends on the variety of fish and the quantity Beaming as he points to a pile of perfect filets Govinda who has been in this profession for over 25 years says “I have already prepared fillets for 200 kg of fish Now I’m working with them to show them how it’s done” He claims that with time and expertise anyone can get that much work done to increase one’s daily income Shefali* 38 who began training on September 8 overhears and says “I do almost 20-25 fish per day now” As part of their training the woman are also learning how to measure the slices and pack them to be shipped to various outlets Depending upon the fish they can earn between Rs 10-20 per kg thereby giving them a scope to make Rs 1000 a day But that will take time says Govinda As of now they are getting Rs 150 a day along with a travelling allowance of Rs 50 Free lunch is also provided at the training site While 42-year-old Komala* is elated with this opportunity many others who had initially signed up have not turned up due to which the organisers are worried “When I was asked if I would like to learn about cutting fish I was extremely happy Finding a good and respectable income not having to be secretive about where I go to work every day is a big relief” she says adding that she doesn’t mind working while everyone enjoys their holidays Around 15 women have been getting training at the food park ahead of Durga Puja (Source: Express photo by Subham Dutta) Speaking to indianexpresscom Kabita Biswas mediator between the sex-workers and the Durbar Mahila Samanwaya Committee (DMSC) which works for the welfare of sex workers in the state explains the varying turnout “A few girls feel the stipend is low It’s Durga Puja and everyone wishes to earn a little extra Some of them make more than Rs 500 or Rs 600 a day With almost half the day gone at the site and the time spent in travelling from their home to the park it is not a total win-win situation They don’t get any bonus and now in the days running up to Pujas they are not very comfortable earning less Most are very interested in the initiative and are keen to get trained some are shying away as it means a cutback in their daily income A few girls have told me that they want to come but after Puja” At a daily stipend of Rs 200 (including travelling allowance) these women are being trained to under a special initiative part of a collaboration between the state fisheries department and Durbar Mahila Samanwaya Committee (DMSC) (Source: Express photo by Subham Dutta) Dr Smarajit Jana chief advisor of DMSC says “We have already talked to the fishery department about the price They are paying our workers more and this is just during the training period Once they are fully trained they will earn more” Traditionally sex-workers are an integral part of Durga Puja as soil from their locality is mixed with that used to create idols of the goddess But with this initiative these women are hoping to create a new tradition *Names of sex workers have been changed to protect their identities* For all the latest Lifestyle News download Indian Express App IE Online

1985 when she first visited Ahmedabad Amrita Shah was a journalist on a deadline — sent to cover violent anti-reservation protests in the city She was a Bombay girl in what she thought was a “provincial town” but the city took her by surprise “First it is 600 years old You see every kind of architecture there from vernacular to Sultanate to modern and British It is visually very striking You see buildings by Corbusier and Louis Kahn And then there are all the institutions: from IIM Ahmedabad to the National Institute of Design and CEPT It had a history of trade and enterprise a trade union movement which had been influenced by Gandhian restraint” she says Over the years she kept returning to the city to report among others on Ela Bhatt’s SEWA and the chemist Harsanbhai Patel who had developed the cheap detergent powder Nirma “As these two examples showed it was a city which was not just entrepreneurial but which also thought of the ordinary person” she says Shah 52 found a remarkable egalitarianism on its streets that owed no little to the mills around which life revolved “At one time 20 per cent of Ahmedabad had a direct relationship with the mills When the late-night shift would end you had all-night food stalls serving workers Everyone would eat there You could be standing next to the mill owner and eating There was this sense of camaraderie and it also made the city very safe especially for women” she says Amrita Shah Shah’s new book Ahmedabad: A City in the World was prompted by the silence in civil society in the aftermath of the 2002 anti-Muslim riots “It was eerie as if it didn’t happen People told me the national media had made it all up Or it was justified ‘they’ deserved it Then there came a time when you could not bring it up because the reactions were so unpleasant That was when I shut up and said: let me try and understand this” she says Simultaneously she saw it being remade in the image of a “global” city of middle-class fantasy under then chief minister Narendra Modi a place of flamboyant flyovers and luxury hotels Shah is provocative in suggesting that there is a connection: that the transformation of the city and the riots which purged Muslims from the heart of the old pols and colonies were not two separate things “I see 2002 as a setting stage for a structural shift for the way the city gets reshaped” she says as she unpacks the strands of her argument during an interview in Delhi “The phenomenon of Hindus and Muslims moving out of mixed areas started in the 1980s In 2002 there was a completion of that process But also the riots gave Modi the reputation of being strong and being able to put down dissent It was seen as a lack of empathy towards riot victims But it was also seen as welcome and necessary to push through economic reforms A man who knew what he wanted to do and would not be diverted a strong man an authoritative man” he says Even in 2002 when Gujarat seemed an outlier ruled by a majoritarian chief minister with little national acceptability Shah says she believed this state had lessons for the country “I am saying that in 2014 we saw that local phenomenon becoming national” she says The book however does not hammer these arguments but gently asks the reader to see the connections through a portrait of a changing city She writes of a new need to recast the Gujarati male in a martial role of a once spartan community always suspicious of flamboyance which now is riveted by the spectacle of Modi who is “not a leader a politician He is an object of desire An object of consumption” She writes movingly of the leaves that have overrun Gulberg Society where Congress MP Ehsan Jafri was mutilated and burnt to death — and the consensus of silence in the majority community about such violence “But…was as close to empathy as I was to find in Ahmedabad” she writes one of the most damning statements in the book She also finds Meraj a 34-year-old Muslim entrepreneur who saw the riots opening up a chasm between his religion and his life in the old neighbourhood “I miss living among Hindus” he tells Shah — and “it was the first time … that I had heard the thrum of love and longing” she writes Meraj was a garment businessman making his way up by way of Gujarati thrift and hard work when the riots destroyed his business We meet him twice — in the first chapter as he accompanies Shah to his old neighbourhood and in the last at Bombay Hotel a squalid sea of detritus and tiny hovels at the fringe of the city where many Muslims now string together lives That thrum of longing for the city permeates Shah’s writing even when she is at her harshest “There is a complete lack of pretense in Ahmedabad a great love for the simple joys of life Friendship is one of them the ability to just be laugh together not do expensive things together Their humour is like running water there is just laughter bubbling all the time” she says For her it was a difficult book to write because “to record change is not an easy thing” She is unwilling to look into the future to see if Ahmedabad will find the path of reconciliation “It is not only Gujarat’s guilt and that we have to acknowledge This is a phenomenon across the country At the end of the book I do see people bonding through consumption and leisure Who knows what else will happen” For all the latest Lifestyle News download
