Italy plans for prostitution penalty

The overall criteria of prostitution in Italy is worse than any country in European region and the situation is worsening day by day. 'Luisa' is one of the most beautiful leading prostitutes in Italy. She revealed her harsh reality to a secret reporter of local magazine. According to her: she came to Rome for work from her hometown Florence. But soon after arriving Rome she faced the worse mentality of people alongside, specially the corporate houses. She is fairly appealing beautiful with her tremendous figure. But she wanted to use her talent, not figure. She went to several corporate houses for work. But everywhere she went the situation is the same, the 'lust' rich men wanted to eat her. She went door to door, but had no way. The next step is really terrific. Instead of being a model or star she had to get used & exploited by others.

There are thousand of Luisa's are in Italy.

After a long time the government realized & began to take step. But their step is to make the prostitutes starving, throw them in darker side. According to BBC:

Giulio Amato also revealed plans to serve legal papers in clients' homes in order to shame them.

He told a Senate committee he was examining efforts to keep prostitutes off the streets where they were near children or places of worship.

Italy allowed brothels to operate legally until 1959. It now has laws to stop pimps exploiting prostitutes.

Critics say the laws have served to drive prostitutes onto the streets.

They say the problem has worsened with the accession of 12 more countries to the European Union over the past three years.

Bus-mantra at Bijoy-soroni in Dhaka

If I ask the god 'who r the most sufferer people in Dhaka', he would answer 'Mirpur'. If I ask the same question to a ghost it will instantly reply 'if not Mirpur then why I'm there, for rolling what balls'.
This is the real scenario of people of Mirpur zone. Hundreds of bus rush on busy road daily, they use 2 lens to pass through 'Bijoy-soroni' to reach Farmgate. Earlier there was no ban-order on any of the roads. In such condition (earlier) we had to face regular jam at 'bijoy-soroni', we had to accept the troublesome waiting (may be standing, sitting, pushing each other in crowded bus), 2/3 times signal was usual to pass just a signal.
But the situation worsened 2 weeks ago when traffic stopped the lane to direct bijoy-soroni, the traffic compelled all buses to go through only local-root, even they ban 'Volvo' which used to go through the restricted path from the day it started on road. You can think what can happen in such connection!! The buses use to stop before 'Agargaon', traffic-jam occur every now & then, a bus had to wait 50/60 minutes to reach 'farmgate'. The situation is really miserable when people go to their office in the morning in office-hour. Not only that, for VIP-coinsurance one signal turns into 3/4 consecutive signals, it means one has to wait 10/12 minutes to pass just a signal that would take 2/3 minutes.
I really don't know what's the fault of the people of this area! I try to imagine if I could have a 'balloon' then I would fly to push away this bullshit traffic-decision.
