An Indian sex worker standing behind an advertisement advocating condom use watches volunteers from Durbar Mahila Samannay Samiti tie rakhis, or sacred threads, around the wrists of other sex workers in the Khalpara red light district during Hindu festival Raksha Bandhan in Siliguri on August 5, 2009. The annual Raksha Bandhan festival is marked by the simple ceremony of the sister tying a colorful thread, a simple bracelet, or a decorative string around the wrist of her male siblings, symbolising the love that binds women to their brothers.
