Education of Transgenders in Himachal Pradesh: Issues and Challenges

Download Paper


Abstract - Fair and beyond the world of social justice and global upliftment lays the hidden mysterious world of transgenders, commonly known as hijras or kinnars. Though they constitute a marginalised part of society, the reality of their existence and omnipresence is unavoidable. Being a part of third gender community, they are simply considered as a source of entertainment or a kind of prowler by so called social beings. Transgender community is always suspected and mostly neglected. Their birth is taken as a curse, their presence scornful. They have a challenged life, full of hardships and sufferings. In the present paper, the researchers intend to trace the transgenders living in Himachal Pradesh, establish rapport with them so as to know about the major issues they are facing. For serving the purpose, 30 male-to-female transgenders or hijras were interviewed personally and common issues were found like rejection by family, discrimination by society, lack of adequate educational, employment and health facilities and no living support.
