Contextualizing My Theology with Domestic Working Girls

During my theology studies at Vidyajoti, Delhi, India from July 2007 to October 2010, I had to go for ministry with people as part of contextualized theologizing. There were many options given to us from among whom we had to give three choices in the order of priority and wait for the final word from the ministry coordinator. I was totally surprised when my name appeared in the list against the ministry for domestic working girls. It would not be out of place for me to mention that this ministry was nowhere in my list of priorities. In fact I did not want to work with the ‘Domestic Working Girls’, because I had heard a lot of stories about them and I was prejudiced about them.
