Here to see Change!
Welcome to Sowers.
Sowers is a mission aimed at sparking off social change, everywhere. Our generation and society still hold uncharted territories of the Human instinct that need to be talked about more than ever before. We aspire to initiate discussions on issues that would otherwise be never heard about. We talk about them, we write about them. We are bloggers, photographers, documentarians and young visionaries on a mission to change minds before we can change the World!
Sowers was started in our hostel room because we felt the need to start a discussion on things that were happening around us. It grew from there and we feel it more than ever that our society needs to have a civil discussion about everything concerning our society, be it the political scenario, the socio-cultural situation or education system.
Our mission statement
To reach out to the young minds out there and start a discussion. To become a platform that helps in sharing knowledge and wisdom about issues that most greatly affect our society.

Those children looked as young and as naive as I […]
Prostitution is not always what we get to see on roadside or street corners. Sometimes its found deeply entwined with god, temples and religions. It is ironic that ‘religion’, one place we turn to in search of god, sanctity and spirituality is among the many places that house the evil of prostitution and abuse within […]
Swimming against the tide has always been a difficult task for all the people that have ever carried the torch to make a difference. To know your mistake and to acknowledge it is an even greater accomplishment for any human. Far too long, we focus on proving ourselves right. Irrespective, even if the logic and […]
A Brief History… Prostitution has existed in all parts of the World at some point in time. Looking into its history is a mind-boggling task indeed. The earliest known account of Prostitution as a profession is found in the Sumerian records, dating back to 2400 BCE. The Ancient Near East was the home of many […]
In an interview with two prominent NGO’s – Freedom Firm, Allahabad and the Guria Foundation, Varanasi that work to rescue women from brothels, both admitted to having been successful in shutting down the area. Though skeptic of this, I decided to visit that area recently on the lead of a friend who had earlier visited […]
