Why not engage transgenders far better and give them fresh hope?It is pathetic to find transgenders beg in most EMU trains in Chennai. Sometimes they beg in the day express trains too. The legal position is that they have equal rights.
Yet, they do not even seem to get the bare minimum means to survive. They should be guided by some non-government organizations to get some good training in skills that will enable them to stand on their own feet.
Let us actively promote public discourses and also bring their plight to the notice of good voluntary organizations. Don't they deserve such training? We need to also ensure that there is some sort of adult education organized for them. The public generally are irritated by their behaviour of physically touching them and pleading for money.
Very urgently, something should be done. On my part, I will try my best to bring this to the notice of organizations like Banyan, that is already doing solid work. Yet, I guess there is so much more to be done.
Members may highlight constructive action done in their own cities. We need to explore some ways to help these human beings.
