This Blog is for YOU...

If you are/were Gender Dysphoric - so as to know some from me and share some with me, and reaffirm that none of us is alone... To acknowledge that we have a treasure of insurmountable Courage, Strength and Hope in us. I have a feeling that we were given slightly higher quantities of those special gifts :-) [If you have a question to ask me, you could write it as a Comment to one of the posts, and either I would reply to it as a Comment itself, or probably, respond in one of the future posts on this blog]

If you have never been Gender Dysphoric - so as to understand what it means to have a Gender Identity Disorder. Of course, it primarily depends on whether you want to or not. If you don't, please do make a quiet exit and try not to be a nuisance.

If you're confused - so as to realize that everybody goes through a stage of confusion - the period could be short, or sometimes, very long. What is important is to acknowledge that being unsure until you're sure is as normal and as alright as night before day.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

If you're a human being - so as to find out for yourself whether you want to try to make the world a better place to live in, for every fellow human being, irrespective of their health, wealth, colour, race, gender, religion and any and every other line of division you can think of.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

And finally, this blog is for ME - so as to be able to make some difference somewhere by sharing my experiences, and along the way, slowly grow out of those anxieties and insecurities that have inhabited my life for over 2 decades. It is time to escort them to the door now!

Come, Join me on this journey!

  8. Saw the video. Superb effort!
    As I had said earlier, you are one of the bravest people I have met, and are a great source of inspiration. :)

    See if you can get CNN-IBN's permission, and put the video on the left column on this blog itself along with the NDTV videos.

    Do keep us posted on what next. All the best!

  9. Gautam – Thanks once again! But like I’ve said earlier, I’m not open to friendship. All the best!


    Jackie – Hey Jackie! Nice to hear from you. Thanks for all your wonderful compliments. I hope you’ll be able to watch the show once your browser gets fixed. And sure, you can add my blog to your blogroll and we can keep in touch. Take care. All the best! Hug. :)


    Vikram – Thanks a ton! I’m glad the show could make some difference somewhere. All the best!


    Silent Lucidity – Like I’ve told you earlier, you have to become independent first and then take control of your life. The only person in the world who can help you is YOU! And I did not add you on facebook because (again, as I’ve told you earlier), I do not add people whom I don’t personally know. Please concentrate on your studies and try to make a career, so that you don’t have to depend on others for your freedom. All the best! Take care.


    Nirav – Thanks so much! I’m always glad to hear from you and get your opinions :). The CNN show will actually not be available online forever, so it may not be such a good idea to put that link in the Videos section, but I’m trying to get it there through youtube. Thanks once again Nirav! Take care.

  11. Silent Lucidity - I will not add you on facebook. It's not about 'dushmani', it's just about principle. I don't add people unless I personally know them. And I won't repeat this another time!

  15. Babal - Mera jawaab dono cases mein wahi hota. Main apne bete/beti ka psychological evaluation karwaati, aur agar ye prove hota ki wo Gender Dysphoric hain, toh main poori tarha unko support karti.

    Thanks for your prayers! All the best, and take care. :)

  16. Gazal you looking beautiful & confident on CNN-IBN why not. Related to facebook request,I am completely agree with gazal. Plz let gazal choose it who to add and whome not. IF she dont add in facebook doen't mean she rejected you as friends. Lets say our example,if we know person personally then we dont add it, so like her she is doing same.
    Most important is she is more concerned towards feeling of trans, started her blog,sharing her experience,answering question best possible way, revolutionizing media by her own example,so called our society started discuss it openly about gender issue.
    Best of luck Gazal for your Nobel work.We are with you.

  19. good
    and the finest thing is that you are not having reservation in your mind that you are transgeneder or transsexual as others who go for SRS bt still confused about their sexuality and feel like being EUNUCH and join their community (see kalki of sahodari foundation).
    it is really good to see that you really recognise yourself and are happy with what you are from your birth.
    can you write me

  20. you must acknowledge and admit that you are a WOMAN now , you were right from your birth.Dont treat yourself different from other woman.you must tell the world that you have corrected the wrong in you.it was a normal medical treatment that boosted yr morale, cured yr psychological problem.thaz great.

  21. Anonymous3 - I'm sorry I won't be able to spare time to read that blog.


    Anonymous4 - I don't think Kalki has any confusion about her gender or sexuality. She has chosen to work for the betterment of the hijra community and that is highly commendable.

    And yes, your understanding is correct about my always having been a woman and that is exactly how I think the mature people around me understand me.

    I'm sorry I won't be able to write to you personally. If you have anything else to share, please feel free to write here. Wish you all the best!

  22. hie gazal di. this is a cute brother of yours named rishi. i am aged 16 living in m.p i am a male and i am very much cute and very very much gorgeus like you. and i believed that god gives us extra ordinary talent in us because i am a fab professional singer and dancer plus practising for modelling. i strongly feel that i am a gender dysophrobic. and i am deciding for SRS, i told my sister about all this she's supporting me. plus i got plus points that i am extreamly beautiful like you, and especially my figure is so much girly that even straight guys do also get attracted to me. my every feature is very sharp especially my eyes and my lips. i am very fair in colour so now i have decided to achieve what i want. but all credit goes to you because your life gave me a hope and a 'JAZBA' and i now i am so strong from inside just because of you. thanks a lotsssss.. :)

  27. In the contemporary times, there is nobody in the whole escorting coliseum who does not know Megha Patel as the most charming escorts in Ahmedabad. I have earned this enduring trust and unwavering quality from my clients in the light of the greatness of my administrations that has made me a standout amongst the most loved free escort in Ahmedabad. My name Megha Patel is itself a brand that speaks to my Ahmedabad escort administrations in a persuading way. I emphatically have faith in a business conduct that altogether relies on validity and the quickness of the administrations. This is the reason I have kept up a top position among all the female grown-up performers in the city of Ahmedabad.
