Hijras Singing Our National Anthem Makes I-Day Even More Special

This is the most beautiful thing I have seen on an Independence Day ever in my life. Period.
While growing up, we were told that our national anthem is about unity, love and brotherhood. However, after seeing this video where some Indian eunuchs are singing the national anthem, this belief has got shaken.
The video shows hijras along with their names and what they had aspired to be in life. The anthem doesn’t sound like an anthem the moment you realize these poor souls couldn’t become what they wanted to be because of the segregation they face in our society.
This 69th Independence Day, we must realize that by considering hijras as a backward community, we are in no way moving forward. We are socially, economically and emotionally degrading.
Thanks to Yathartha pictures for making this video. Watch it and decide if it is really a ‘Happy’ Independence Day:
