During the years i lived in Bangalore- India, one group of people were so hard not to notice for me in the streets. Transgendered women.A group who are known from ordinary people to be the beggars and prostitutes. Not knowing that life and the country`s regulations, cultural taboos and their families abandonment have not given them other choices for survival. Above 90% of them leave their biological families at early ages , run away to big cities such as Bangalore ,pune, Mumbai .They live in Big families of their own. A godmother who is called the

Guru , wisest,oldest and more experienced of all, will run the family and accept new members as her daughters and grandchildren. She is the only one who sleeps on bed in the house.The places they live in are so small ,damp and dark, mostly located in poor dangerous areas.They can be from any cast or religion as long as they are accepted as a family member. On my research on their lives, i ran in to some who were married and living with a man , having their own house.
