Shri Gauri Sawant’s childhood was spent in troubles
She says, ‘I was 9 years old, then the shadow of the mother got up from her head. She was terrified. Victim of bullying. Nobody used to talk. There was a ban on wearing makeup and saris. Even though I may not have been beaten up, but the neglect of people hurt me from within. My father had performed my last rites while I was alive. When she could not tolerate the neglect of the family, she left the house.
Shrigauri Sawant works for AIDS Control Society
Shri Gauri Sawant wandered here and there after escaping from the house and finally came in contact with her guru Kanchan Amma. When Kanchan Amma saw him wandering in the signal, she brought him home with her. Transgenders had to work like ‘sex workers’ or begging, but they could not become sex workers because they were not beautiful. She did not like begging, so she joined an NGO. She currently works with the AIDS Control Society of Maharashtra.
