We often ignore the fact that directly or indirectly, we as a society, are responsible for the oppressed condition of the transgenders. Being disowned by their own families and harsh treatments from other people in society leads to their so-called bad behavior. Lack of access to education and non availability of jobs often force them to take a begging and prostitution. But still amidst all these adversities, there are some transgender persons who are brave enough to make their way to the main stream, achieve their goals and prove that trans people are capable and deserving as any other Indian, thus breaking the stereotype.
