There are many unfortunate girls like her among this community-forced to marry old,arabs who come down to Kerala coast to do bussiness or just for fun.The poor girls who are not even literate have no other way to live but'marry' these men -their own mothers being women who were divorced or widowed and living in utter poverty.
