Defying All Odds, an Unusual Story of Love


I lived in Kolkata and he was working there. He used to pass from front of our house. So we used to greet sometimes. He proposed me first, we got to know each other. We exchanged numbers and started talking. She was not convinced that we could live together. I asked her if we can marry or live together. She said it is not possible, what will people say. Then we met in malls and coffee shops, However, people didn’t look at us the way they would look at a normal boy-girl couple… they looked at us differently…how are a boy and a trans person together… Means people used to comment. When I used to visit malls and market before marriage, people looked at me differently. But when I visit the same places now with my husband, their outlook is different. ….Oh they married…I mean they speak well now. Initially, my family was not aware of our relationship. But since I was working in kolkata, I had a big friend circle, so the family came to know. They didn’t react well, we didn’t talk for a year and a half after getting into a relationship. Then I gradually started talking and explaining to them. Now my family has accepted and is happy. We often visit each other. We didn’t bother about the society, because love does not see gender and caste Once we are together … …we will not be able to live a life if we worry about the society. We stopped bothering about the society’s reactions, and lived the way we wanted to live. Vidya Rajput in Raipur, who organized this wedding ceremony … …told that 55-60 people have applied and we should also apply. So out of 55 applications, 15 were selected, we were one of them. We were very happy to learn that for the first time across the world, Our community will marry and the society will accept us. Otherwise people wonder – can these people marry too? Can they live together? This is their thinking… We can’t do anything about these perspectives. But now that we are married and registration and everything is done, It all took place in front of the entire world… So the society also realised that yes these people can also live a normal life. The perspective of the society changed. About the change in our lives…we were already in a live-in relationship, We didn’t have formal wedding, just married in a temple, but we were living like a family.
