THE PRINCESS OF A WHOREHOUSE: THE STORY OF A 
SWAMP LOTUS
by
Mayank Sharma



Blurb

Aparajita is a tenacious go-getter. Her name means unconquerable in Sanskrit, and she lives up to its meaning. 

Just like any other ambitious girl, she desires to fulfil her dreams and become an independent individual. Far and wide, the shadow of her melancholy past chases her passage. The fact that her widowed mother is a former sex worker irks the community. Nonetheless, she is not ashamed to reveal her mother's past. 

Will she lose hope, or will she defy an enigma that is centuries-old? Will she ever conquer the hearts of a prestige-obsessed community? 

See the world through Aparajita's prism in a tale stirred by some real life events.

About the author


Mayank Sharma is a computer engineering graduate with post-graduation in business management. He works with a leading technology multinational in Delhi. He has authored a number of articles and white papers on software technology and processes. For the first time in April 2014, his article was featured in Better Software magazine published in Florida, USA. Writing has become Mayank's greatest passion when he observed how it can trigger the winds of change. He is gradually transforming from a “left-brained” writer to a “right-brained” writer. Besides writing, he is passionate about sketching, painting, and making sculptures since childhood.

India is the fifth-largest economy in the world with the Gross Domestic Product growth at 7.1 percent. Contrary, India ranks 118 out of 157 countries in the happiness index. The fact seized Mayank’s attention towards social problems affecting social support, freedom of choices, and generosity, to name a few. Having travelled across continents and associated with people with diverse beliefs and values, he became more curious about the social riddles curtailing liberties across societies. He penned his debut novel, The Princess of a Whorehouse, when he came across some real life incidents that quivered his soul.

  1. Yes, I think everyone should have a right to education no matter what their background or circumstances.

  2. Education is the mightiest weapon to combat inequalities. However, it is not treated as a fundamental right as prestige and monetary greediness overshadow education system. Unfortunately, it’s a catch 22 situation.

  3. Yes, everyone has a right to education. Unfortunately our government only gives lip service to this.so kudos to those people who in their individual capacity reach out and try to make our society a better place.

  4. I had seen this in an NGO in Kolkata where all the residents where given the surname Das, God's children. It was something beautiful to witness. Those kids are equally intelligent and should never be deprived of anything in their lives. I have just now finished Mayank's book and really liked the concept. Prostitution and ill effects we all speak of - but to focus of positivity in this situation is an art.

  5. Education is the birthright of every child. The Government and Society should ensure that no child is deprived of this basic right.

  7. It's ironic to see how irrational discrimination darkens the minds of those who have onus to educate our society. Unfortunately, I am very sad to hear this news. Not sure, when we will grow up!
