Transgender people in India face a variety of issues. So far, these community have been excluded from effectively participating in social and cultural life; economy; and politics and decision-making processes. Reports of harassment, denial of services and unfair treatment to TG’s in the areas of employment and public accommodation have been common. After the judgment given by the supreme court of India now it’s the duty of the society to except them as Human being and treat them with equality.

My Invitation to YOU!
I wish you a very happy and joyful life. I also take this
opportunity to congratulate you for “Being Human”.
When I say Human we, by default classify ourselves either as
a Male or a Female. Right from our childhood through our science books we are
taught the same classification. We are proud to be Male and we are proud to be
Female. In our so called world the third gender does not exist. But you accept
it or not, they do exist. My question to myself and now to you is…
“Are these third gender creatures, Human?” And the
Yes. Yes. Yes they are Human Being. But unfortunately we don’t
treat them as Human Being.
Right now according to the census there are 4,80,000 third
genders reported but according to the activist who work with transgender, claim
that this figure is almost minimum three times bigger i.e approx 14,00,000. And
the more shocking news is that the part of this population is between the age
group 0 to 6. As we know that today these transgender hold no value in our
society, the society dose not accept them as normal individual. We don’t offer them
job or business opportunity. There are not treated with dignity and respect.
But by doing so we are compromising on a very big human resource.
If this continues in future these people will never become
independent and will be thrown in deeper darkness. Which may at some point of
time will cause unrest in this community. If such a thing happens it will
affect the well being of the entire society. As we know that transgender are
used as prostitute and they are more likely to get affected by STD’s and HIV
AIDS. In future a major part of population will get affected from this life
threatening disease. The major junk of Indian population will remain uneducated
and unemployed and will continue to live under poverty line. Such conditions
are not favorable for overall development of the Country.
But if we as a society unite to make a difference we can
convert these till now remained useless and unproductive human resource into a
skilled, trained and productive human resource. We can make a huge difference
in there life’s and also in the development of India. In future we shall one
day see transgender as rickshaw/ taxi drives, Security persons, bus and truck
drivers, food stall vendors and also if they are given equal opportunity of
education we will have doctors, engineers, politicians, actors, police officers
and all other field which are available as carriers.
I am committed to take the first step creating the future
for them and I cannot do it alone. I choose to have people like you in my
project who can lead and mentor me and make it a success.
Through this blog I am taking a Oath of making a difference
in the world around me. I invite you to
join hands with me and be a part of the new beginning of a new revolution. If you
