Doors....



Abandoned I was the day I stepped into this world . Though unaware of the reasons then , now I know . What will a family do with someone who can’t be identified with a gender .

For years I searched and was gifted with mockery that spoofed my existence as a human being but I survived , hoping that life will have it’s own plans and one day it will wash off my moments of anguish rewarding me for all those unnoticed trails of tears that escaped from my lusterless eyes .


Yesterday the highest court honored thousands like me , granting us the right to scribble down our name with our gender , unleashing new doors for a better tomorrow , after all transgenders are human too , aren’t they .

  1. This is only the first step in the attempted assimilation of third genders in India. It still doesn't guarantee respect for them. Abhi Dilli duur hai.

  2. Instead of empathising with them people look down upon them. It is the society as a whole, which has to change to accept them. A very sensitive issue.

  4. Brilliant. A wonderful take on the discrimination they face and acceptance is what people like us, human beings, need. Sensitively told:)
