Khushi Shaikh Early Life
Any parent can be sad when a shemale child is born, but on the contrary, Khushi’s parents were happy at their birth. Because whatever happened that was the first child of them.
However, her family members hide the matter of the birth of the shemale from everyone and told the people that the boy was born. Because they were afraid that if some shemale would inform society, then their children would get away from them.
Her mother did not ready for this at all. Gradually Khushi grew up and became eligible to study, so her parents admitted Khushi to an English medium school in Mumbai. Khushi was admitted as a boy.
Khushi found it very strange that everyone used to treat them like boys. She wanted him to live like a girl and treat them like girls. When Khushi told her feelings to her mother, she explained to her that it doesn’t matter that you are very special, and that’s why it seems like this.
But when Khushi became a little wiser, she understood that she is a shemale. By reaching the 5th class, the whole school came to know about this.
When the whole school came to know about Khushi being transgender, then there was such discrimination in the school against her as if she had come from some other world and not from this world. Some would tell him a shemale and some sweet.
She also started feeling very inferior. Khushi somehow thought it better to leave studies after completing 10th.
She could not pursue further studies even if she wanted to because the news of Khushi being a shemale spread among the people, so people stopped giving work to her family members.
She also happily distanced himself from Khushi’s friend. Because of Khushi, not only her but her entire family was facing a lot of problems. But Khushi’s mother loved her very much, so she did not want to take away Khushi at all costs.
There were 4 people in her family then, her parents and a younger sister. Her younger sister is 10 years younger than him and her father is no more.
At that time, poverty was becoming very dominant, so she decided to take over the responsibility of running the house, which is why she started begging. At that time Khushi’s age was some 16 or 17 years.
One day Khushi was begging, and at the same time, the eyes of a shemale fell on her. She called Khushi to him. She asked Khushi why are you begging? So she told them all about her situation.
The one whom Khushi had met was no ordinary shemale. Her name is Salma Khan she is a judge of Lok Adalat and Khushi considers him her teacher. Not only this, but Salma also runs a social organization trust. Not only transgenders but everyone is helped by this trust.
When Khushi told about her situation to Salma, she called Khushi and her entire family to Mumbra. Where many transgenders live and have great respect for each other. Khushi and her family started getting many facilities and their life became much easier than before.
She got a lot of inspiration from him, she decided that just like our teacher has achieved success, similarly she will also do something big in her life and become an inspiration for society.
