At this globalzation era we are trying to break through all kind of discrimination to get one kind of goal , to live together one another with peacefully ever after. But we all know that this is quite difficult , even though we are trying putting all our effort to acertain this Utopian idea into the reality.
There are few rare countries where Transgender are getting their own space and can live happily on the other hand in some countries which is supposed to be against the law.
I do not know what is right and wrong but everyone is born as a human being and have full right to live their own life freely ............than we do we have to discriminate the so called transgender....
I have taken this whole paragraph from the newspaper , as i find it quite interesting to upload here.

Imphal, February 19, 2010 Emboldened from winning the country's first ever �V-Care Indian Super Queen', a beauty pageant of the transgender community, Laishram David alias Bobby is all set to carry out a motivation campaign to ameliorate the position of transgenders in native Manipur. On Sunday, Bobby (23) was crowned the Indian Super Queen by Bollywood icon Zeenat Aman at a glittering function witnessed and supported by a galaxy of celebrities at Mumbai, giving Bobby the free passage to join the prestigious transgender Miss Universe 2010. A hair stylist by profession and resident of Changangei Mayai Leikai here, Bobby saw off strong challenges from 11 other finalists from all the regions of the country through the ramp walk, talent showcase and Q & A rounds to lift the crown and prize money of Rs 10 lakh. Bobby's heartfelt answer to the final question on the Northeast region helped her clinch the crown. "I will go back and tell my friends and community members that there is space and opportunity for everyone, including those from the northeast in India," Bobby replied drawing the approval of both the audiences as well as the judges. The judges panel consisting of Zeenat Aman, actress Celina Jaitley, Asia-Pacific Transgender Network president Mama Kartini and Big Synergy director Anita Kaul Basu took 15 minutes to decide the ultimate winner and runners-up among the top five. They decided on the winner on the basis of talent, confidence, comfort with one's sexuality and individuality. The deadlock resulted in joint second runners-up position, which was shared by Ritu from Delhi and Aparna from Kolkata. They shared the second runners-up prize money of Rs five lakh. The first runner-up crown went to Rani from Jaipur along with Rs eight lakh. "I'm so happy to grab the title. It was a dream come true as I had dreamt to walk on the ramp, show my inner qualities to a huge audience'', said a soft-spoken Bobby said, adding � My whole family members, friends and well-wishers, who encouraged me all the way are the forces behind my success". Stating that along with the two first and second runner-up position holders have been shortlisted for this year's �Miss Transgender Universe', Bobby stressed on hard work to get the crown and break the gender barriers. Commenting on the society's perception towards transgender community in Manipur, Bobby who, finished pre-university course, said "comparing to some other States, our's is somewhat better. In the past, our community was looked down by the society and now such discriminatory attitude has been erased to a great extent". "Most of the young transgender living in the capital have come out and joined the professional mainstream by way of opening beauty saloons, while others join Shumang Leela (Manipur traditional court yard theatre) as artistes to act as female characters," Bobby said, while expressing desire to make all such people highly educated and become perfectionists in all fields. "With the cash award I got from the National competition, I'm contemplating to open a beauty saloon in Imphal and give employment to at least some unemployed transgender people," the winner said. Bobby also vowed that along with friends and transgender activists in Manipur campaigns would be carried out to ensure all members of the community boldly come out and pursue their dreams and career without fear.
