UNVEILING THE VEIL THROUGH TRANSGENDER NARRATIVES OF A. REVATHI AND LAXMINARAYAN TRIPATHI

PARIDHI CHAUDHARY, DR SHUCHI AGRAWAL.

Abstract
Transgenders in India have been hiding under veils to protect themselves from being judged, teased and harassed. The two narratives in the paper discuss the coming out two brave hijras who underwent massive agony and pain to come out of their nutshell of living dubious lives and follow however they want to be. Hijras in India live at the peripheries of the society because they have been discarded the status of a human being because of their form, dress, language and mannerisms by heteronormative and patriarchal social systems. The paper is an attempt to throw light on the harrowing conditions faced by the transgenders in India and give them some motivation to come out of the closet without and shame or guilt. Revathi who is a castrated hijra, and Laxmi who is not had to undergo boulders of trouble to survive in the patriarchal and even worse heterosexual society of India wherein people with different ideas, clothes, attitudes etc. are just sidelined from the main-stream society and are harassed from day to day. The paper also discusses the role of gender identity and how it shaped up for the two authors.

Key words: transgenders, veils, hijras, heterosexual, harassment.
