You see them at the traffic lights. Most commonly.
You see them when somebody is getting married.
You see them when somebody has had a baby.
You see them when you are throwing a house warming party.
They know the occasion and they come to be a part of the celebration.
Money, is what they demand.
And if you refuse to give the green bucks then you will be jinxed for they are believed to bring bad luck.
Yes, I am talking about the tranny, or the transgender individuals.
Some of you might be astonished as to what a weird topic it is to read (and even to write). But seriously, I am quite surprised by these people.
Recently, we got a house built. Infact, the construction is still in progress and we are not even half way through. But we moved in because the builder was taking a long time to get the house ready. And we have these unwelcomed guests coming almost every single day demanding a huge sum of money. Any guesses as to how much money they have demanded. Thousand bucks? Ten thousand bucks? Twenty Thousand? Fifty thousand? No, thats too less. They want a minimum of One Lakh Rupees. Every morning, they celebrate our arrival in the new house by singing and dancing. They sit at the entrance of the door and argue with us.
But, they do not move. And when they get tired of arguing they promise to return the next day.
And the whole circle starts again.
Sometimes, infact most of the times, it is a pain to see them block our way and dance.
But what can possibly be done.
Will it help if we call the police?
I dont think so. They have a complete syndicate.
Do we pay them? A hundred thousand bucks? Cash?
And if we dont pay them and let them be, won't they bring bad luck as is assumed.
And why would they bring bad luck?
Only because they have a penis and have breasts and dress up like women but look like men.
Pardon the little knowledge that I have on this subject because neither have I ever googled about them nor have I talked about them.
Why are they supposed to have a "buri nazar". How does it happen? Though I have heard a lot of stories of people getting evil fate if they do not fulfill their demands. But isn't it insane to demand one lakh rupees from a person who has just spent a fortune in building a house.
The worst part is that they know that people fear them. They know that people may be apprehensive about giving away a huge sum of money but they would still get it only because people do not want to invite trouble.. nahi to buri nazar lag jayegi..
