Hijra for translations, see [n 1] is a term used in South Asia — particularly in India and Pakistan — to refer to trans women male-to-female transgender individuals. In Pakistan and Bangladesh, the hijras are officially recognized as third gender by the government, being neither completely male nor female. In India also, transgender people have been given the status of third gender and are protected as per the law despite the social ostracism. Hijras have a recorded history in the Indian subcontinent from antiquity onwards as suggested by the Kama Sutra period. This history features a number of well-known roles within subcontinental cultures, part gender-liminal, part spiritual and part survival. In South Asia, many hijras live in well-defined and organised all-hijra communities, led by a guru. The word "hijra" is an Urdu word derived from the Semitic Arabic root hjr in its sense of "leaving one's tribe," and has been borrowed into Hindi.

Lavanya Bahuguna. Rudrani, being the honest person that she is, spoke of the ill treatment transgender people face even though everyone around them is talking equality. I remember how a few years back I was denied entrance to a mall. I kept revisiting the same mall for almost a year till they finally allowed me in. I was deeply hurt and irritated. I fail to understand that why do people have to treat us differently.
