Tourist in Varanasi meets a Pimp

I had a tenant from DC named Nick Chang. He was a Taiwanese but had green card of USA. He was a software Engineer. He was a Buddhist and wanted to visit few Buddhist sites in India. He wanted to visit Sarnath so I suggested him to hire a auto rickshaw for round trip. But he was uncomfortable doing it because he thought that he would not be able to meditate if somebody was waiting for him. I knew that it could be a hassle for a foreigner to deal with our auto rickshaw driver so again I suggested him to take a auto for round trip but he was not interested. I called Raju, the driver whom I hire always, to take Nick to Sarnath. Raju left him at Sarnath and came back.

Returning time Nick hired another auto which was quiet expensive than Raju’s auto. Nick said that he had reserved the whole auto but rickshaw driver let other people come. It was not so bad but definitely not good either. Driver stopped auto at railway station for a while saying that he wanted to buy something and when he came he had a young girl with him who also sat next to Nick. Driver started auto and this girl started touching Nick. Then driver asked Nick if he would like to sleep with that girl. Nick immediately said No but driver was kept telling him to go with that girl.

First he asked for Rs. 5000, then 4000,3000 and finally his last price was only Rs. 1000 for an hour. Nick never wanted to go with her so he never seemed a interested party to driver. Finally he asked for Rs. 500 to spend sometime in auto and Nick again said no but this driver just wanted Nick to buy that girl any how.

By the way when driver felt that Nick would not buy the girl, he stopped auto about 3 KMs before the place where Nick had to go. He said that his auto had some problem that he could not driver it any more. He said that Assi, where he had to go, was only 3 minutes of walk from the place he had stopped auto. Nick just wanted to get rid of it and he thought that Assi was really 3 minutes of walk so he left the auto. But he had to walk for over 30 minutes to get to my home.

Nick was stressed with his first day in Benares and I was shocked to see this new form of prostitution in my hometown. I had heard about prostitutes at Railways station but never realized that they are this much active and auto drivers are their touts.

  1. this is bull shit, does it mean that the auto guy left his fare from sarnath to assi which will be around 200/- approx for the girl. This is ridiculuous. The man named nick must be a dick to have cooked up this shit and woe be to the man who posted it

  2. well really if i were there i fuck both of them and kick their asses to jail motherfuckers pros

  3. I know that whatever happened was not good but they are still part of entertainment industry. Don’t abuse them please!

  4. That is a solitary incidence & doesn’t represent anything about Prostitution in India.
    I myself have travelled abroad many times to Germany & UK & THE SCENARIO that I witnessed there was worst than what Nick had to face in Banaras.

  5. Sumant,

    I was not interested in prostitution but I was more interested in tourism. The thing that surprised me was to see how the auto-rickshaw driver behaved.

  6. nothing special to be shocked, its something very common in society as flesh trade is a oldest prof. in this world. Moreover these auto/taxi are middle man for these gals and foreigners are easy target for them. No doubt its a black spot on society but on other hand its a hard fact and remember where there is a demand ul definately find a supply too.

  7. These days every one running behind the money, does a matter the money is coming from any sources, even illegally. Some people these religious places useing own wife , sister or daughter too. Every one want to be TATA OR BIRLA IN ONE NIGHT DEAR.Any thing is possible in these hi-tech world. Thank you

  8. Due to unemployme alsi nt women are involved in that condition. .prostitution are also in varanasi

  9. yeah i agree with this story i can happen bec i have seen prostitutes intermingling with auto rikshaw drivers and they are the one who help them amd supply this must be a true story i agree with nick

  10. Definitely believe that which you stated. Your favorite justification appeared to be on the internet the easiest thing to be aware
    of. I say to you, I definitely get annoyed while people think about worries that they plainly don’t know about.
    You managed to hit the nail upon the top and defined out the whole thing without having side
    effect , people can take a signal. Will likely be back to get more.
