Muskan, 19.
Muskan left home when her family refused to accept her dressing as a girl. She lives with a guru and other hijras, cooking and cleaning, begging for a living, giving blessings for pennies. She had the operation at 15 - in Andhra Pradesh parental permission is not required. She is now in debt to the guru. Muskan has had the same boyfriend since she was 14 who is still living back in her small village. His family doesn't approve of their relationship, so he is thinking about moving to Mumbai so they can be together. "Love is the only thing that matters to me. I only want love," she says.
