Another article

First, I must apologize for the lack of updates. I have have a busy few months with family obligations, a crashed computer, and a new job. I do have a few articles sitting in my email in-box and I hope to get them read and posted soon. Here is the first, and most recent, of the articles I have for people to read.

This article is about the changes going on in India regarding Hijras. The word scheme is used in the article so keep in mind a possible bias if using this for research. It does mention the recognition of Hijras as a sexual minority in need of assistance and the planning pension they will be getting. The article also mentions prostiution, AIDS, mythology of the community, and some other interesting things.
