Brown as sugar, sweet as the feeling of addiction, in your vein as in your brain. An illness that shreds the past as abscess on the skin, leaving scars as deep as the stigma of HIV and lack of self-respect. Deletes any return on the right patch. A world aside.
“Brown As Sugar” (Brown Sugar is a common drug in India) freezes few frames from the journey towards achieving self-respect and control over the addiction to drugs. At the Yamuna Bazar Drop-In as weel as at the Detox Centre and the Farmhouse Rehabilitation, all organized by Sharan NGO in Delhi, the social workers are strongly committed, furthermore are former drug users themselves. As they have been addicted, they understand the struggles of clients and works as an example for them.
