"Sometimes, it’s better not to know the truth"

Born to a prostitute, sodomised at 10, and then again at 11, castrated soon after and turned into a eunuch. That's the story of Shankar aka Neelam, brilliantly told by Sonia Faleiro in the fourth article of a fine series: "Gali No. 2, Street Despair."

Earlier instalments: 1, 2 and 3.
