Dhaka, Sept 30 (UNB) - A classical musical programme with the participation of the Indian artists was held on Sunday in the city for third gender people.
Rethink, a platform that works for the eunuchs, organized the programme.
Indian Sarod artiste Arnab Bhattacharya performed in the programme accompanied by Nilimesh Chakraborty on tabla.
The people of the hijra community spoke about the presentation of artists. They said that this arrangement has really inspired them. They also expressed their satisfaction as they could enjoy the programme along with the general people without any disturbance.
The artists also expressed their gratitude towards Rethink for introducing such kind of programme.
Arnab Bhattacharya said, “We have served in many countries of the world. But there was no such arrangement anywhere. This class of society has always seen us from a distance and we have never been able to come to them like that.”
Director of Rethink Lulu-Al-Marjan said that the able people should create more opportunities for the third gender people so that they never feel neglected.
The organisation is regularly holding many cultural sessions in the city with the participation and performance of transgender people.
