But in avoiding making chapatis, Nita has signed up to a life in which she will deal with 20 to 30 clients per day, until she reaches her forties. She wears jeans and a skimpy top, and giggles a lot. She claimed it did not matter what the man looked like. But the workmen who lounge by their bulldozers have their eyes on something else - a cluster of makeshift shelters where girls, several under 18 and at least two younger than 15, can be seen strolling or sitting, in view of the dusty carriageway. An attempt is being made to break the cycle by which the girls of each generation enter the trade. Nita, a virgin in the hut next door, has four sisters, all prostitutes. But in the villages around Bharatpur there is a shortage of girls to marry, and the custom is for the boy's family to pay the girl's family a large lump sum before the wedding can take place.
