British Broadcasting Corporation Home. Born into a brothel in the Indian city of Calcutta, Avijit Halder's life has undergone a dramatic transformation. It all started with the filming of an Oscar-winning documentary, Born into Brothels, which dealt with the lives of the children of Indian sex workers. Avijit Halder was one of eight children of sex workers who featured in the documentary film, co-directed by Zana Briski and Ross Kauffman.
As part of the documentary, children were taught how to take photographs to document their lives and their surroundings in Sonagachi - Calcutta's red light district. We had no idea what a documentary was.
We only knew Bollywood films," Avijit said. The film showed Avijit at his home. Life here was a mess because his father was a drug addict while his mother was constantly ill.
She died when Avijit was barely in his teens. The film-makers set up a charity called Kids with Cameras, and this helped the eight children who featured in the documentary to get help with their education. Along with their schooling, the children were encouraged to develop a passion for photography. Their photos received a lot of attention and exhibitions were held in Calcutta and in New York. Auctions were even held at Sotheby's to raise funds. Avijit was the star of those exhibitions and was soon invited to participate in a photo talent contest in Amsterdam, Holland.
He was getting the taste of things to come. He has done tremendously well, considering where he comes from. He is just like any other kid. He is always helping others too and helps us raise money to help other kids," said Mr Kauffman. In , I watched the film for the first time, after it had won the Oscar. It was for the first time I realised that I had a voice and people want to know about my life story.
