The move of poor farmer-daughters to Bangkok
I stumbled over this pitiful scene which is really not usual here! It is, when
one knows the inside of the live of certain women, indeed pitiful and a vicious
woman collapsed and laid for dead on the pavement of soi 7. The handicapped
beggar witnessed. The woman appeared after investigation by ambulance-staff to
be "mau lau" (very drunk). A combination of little food, being
over-tired, the heath and the use of alcohol? A bit later she zigzagged over
the pavement asking by-passers for money for a taxi to come home.
before these scenes are big exceptions but are saying something about the
desperate situations of a lot of women in the night-life of Bangkok. Most of the hugh problems for their
surviving are not showed like this but are going around and around in their
heads until sometimes no way out can be found anymore.
those women are from the poor north-east of Thailand (Isan), are from
farmers-families and are sometimes widow but lots of times without husband (disappeared/divorced)
or boyfriend but not after producing one or more children. Under financial
pressure of the family they are going to work in big cities like Bangkok.
keep eventual comments sane even when you might have another opinion or when
you are cheated or frustrated by certain experiences!)
As I am not able to comment or to reply I shall reply in another way than here.
