Not only that, its name has emerged in different ways in Bangla literature. During the British government, it was largely a great form.

Though the job is illegal, the government does not tinkle with Sonagachhi. The government of Calcutta accepted the lives of these people and their livelihood. No government in West Bengal wanted to eradicate the Sonagachi. Maybe it is due to some cultural reasons, for some political reasons. Because despite the long years of Communist rule in West Bengal, there was nothing like the sex of a recognized sex like Sonagachi, so it can be said that its roots are deeply buried.
