The transgender community has long been the most untouched from the mainstream in the country. The community has been neglected in our society and also by the governments. The transgender often face transphobic harassment, inequality in work, school and society in general. Due to this discrimination the transgender does not get any work or not able to run any business. They are all around us, but all of us are obvious of the challenges resisted by them in daily life. The population of transgender people is less, and that is one cause for the governments to not pay attention towards them. The lockdown makes their life more difficult. This is a time for general public to do away with our prejudice and misconception about transgender community and help their empowerment. Herewith, the Governments should also take note, initiate welfare schemes for the betterment of transgender and protect their human rights.
