At Kolkata Red Light District, Lots Of Bhalobasha for Team Brazil
Video Editor: Vishal Kumar
Sonagachi is still spoken about in whispers in Kolkata, but this football season it has attracted crowds for reasons barring the usual. Kolkata’s largest red light district has decked up in green to support team Brazil this World Cup.
An initiative of a local club, the walls of every house in Fakir Chand Street sports the colours of the Brazilian flag. Neymar and Coutinho, however, remain favourites!
Meanwhile, the sex workers in the area say that business slumps during important matches. But the plus side? They get to watch the matches too!
Aage badho, Team Brazil! Here’s Kolkata sending loads of prayers and bhalobasha for you!
