More on Hijras as politicians

Hyderabad Hijra's on Politics - "Eunuchs have no comments on polls"

This is a very interesting article because it shows a different perspective on the issue of the community members as politicians. It seems to me that many of reasons these hijras avoid politics are the same reason that others are trying to get into politics. I think it comes down to how each hijra (and each hijra community) sees their place in the world. This article talks about how they are here to make money. What others have commented is that they feel as if this life was not a choice, but rather who they are.
