BUTTERFLY

Why a man chooses to be a transwoman? Because they want to give the prior value to the feminine quality hidden within. But at the end of the day we use to put them in a separate bracket “Transgender”, in colloquial language “Hijra”. So they have to fight for each and every right we (men/ women) get very easily for our living in society.

The story depicts the views of society on transgender and the pain that bears by the community while surviving as a human being; though we use to say, we have the equal rights to live.
