Children brides in India.

Wadia is a small village in the  Gujarat state of India. As a long standing tradition, all girls born in the village are sold as prostitutes — since very young age, until they get married. The government of the most populous democracy in the world, emerging economical power, and member of the nuclear club, seems little — if not at all — interested in the trade of these young children. A no-profit organization, in the attempt to end this tribal practice, organized the combined marriage of most girls of the village with an equal number of young boys. These are the pictures of the wedding.

Trade of girls is not a prerogative of Asian and Middle-Eastern countries. In the heart of Europe, every year is held a Brides Market.
