I am now 37 years old and I’m proud because I’ve done a lot with my life. Not only am I a celebrated dancer, I have starred in several TV shows, and I was the first transgender person to represent the Asia-Pacific region at the United Nations, in 2008. I have adopted two children and am living a happy and fulfilling life.

Gender is nothing but an unromantic box

I thought why not discuss about the men in detail, as it’s always good to discuss about them, right? My sexuality is only mine and I felt I should explore it and in that process I have explored it fully.

Sexuality was never a taboo in India, we have a very rich history of women who used their sexuality for their best interest — be it the apsaras in Vedas or Draupadi in Mahabhartha, Sita in Ramayana, all were women of substance.

There are no good or bad women. The concept of good girls going to heaven and bad ones being thrashed into the hell is beyond my mind’s eye. It is the situation that makes a human bad or good; you just can’t judge and call him/her good or evil.

I don’t believe in morality. I believe in survival. These perceptions are ages-old. The mythical story of Lord Lakshama drawing a line outside the home for Goddess Sita saddens me to death. The line that she wasn’t supposed to cross while he and his brother were away. That ‘Lakshmana Rekha’ is now the ‘Dahleej’ that must be observed by every woman. It determines the character of a woman.

It was my fate to not have any children. Because of that, we planned to plant trees and raise them and get blessings. We have treated the trees as our children.

One day we thought why not plant trees and tend to them like we would our children

Relatives of mine wanted to grab the small parcel of land I owned, and they tried all means to get it. Eventually, they did by paying me a small sum

I am very happy seeing all my children. We have looked after the trees with love and I am happy and proud.

I have been wanting to start a hospital, but no one seems interested. But I will keep trying

Hulikal had only a mud road, and people used to walk or ride a bullock cart to go to the nearest market
