Transgenders In India Still Struggling For Right To Adopt Or Marry
Transgenders In India Still Struggling For Right To Adopt Or Marry -

... There were green
Tattoos on their cheeks, jasmines in their hair, some
Were dark and some were almost fair. Their voices
Were harsh, their songs melancholy; they sang of
Lovers dying and or children left unborn....
Some beat their drums; others beat their sorry breasts
And wailed, and writhed in vacant ecstasy.

—The Dance of the Eunuchs by Kamala Das
