Erratum on screen

Eunuch, we are not going to see how they born like this or not discussing about their physical and mental changes from others. It’s about how they have been seen from the society and the feel that was spreading. It was a bad thing I want to tell that what the Medias and films are going with the eunuchs these days. From the days of times the eunuchs are shown as a signal of wrong think that they sing and dance by clapping hands to impress men. Those times I used to think why they are begging in unusual manner, when there were few scene for visible at my place sometimes back, that they claps and begs to everyone at streets and some hide to escape from how the behave. But today I could find the eunuchs have been controlled to beg in streets or I don’t know is still there, because I did found none so far.

It must need to save them from the prejudice that was spreading through films and serials between people. Why I suddenly thought to right it here is, as I was going through a magazine where I came to know an upcoming film has a song with many eunuchs to dance and in rejoice manner, that doesn’t aware how it would be pictured. In a recent film there was a song that I don’t want to indicate and it was a hit though, has used the eunuchs in a folk dance where it has been presented mistakenly and in face swirl behavior. Continuing this, the character in serials has blowing it in big for a wrong signal. Why they haven’t known what these behaving characters feel others from the same life. There is still in process to display eunuchs as symbolic to sexual workers, and bad person to society…. and it not thinks for why, but accepts whatever shown and seen.

When the screens can show them in these ways to attract the people on a different way, it’s not difficult to bring them on screen with good looking and scrutiny in well behaving. To make a different we should not hurt there feelings and emotions, if we couldn’t give a good recognition, at least not spoils.

first! :)

Yes the society as a whole needs to rethink on the issue of eunuchs. They don't need our sympathy but our support. They need to included into our society as "normals".

They should be recognized by govt and they need more support from our society..but unfortunately most of the time we see socity and cinema industries are mentally abusing them..

Acceptance Jeevan is a fiduciary concept ...

Do us need acceptance from the society ... no! so why shld they is something tht I have never understood, they r as much a part of the same society as I and u r ....

Its our pre-historic ego which defines wht normality is, but I dont know who r we to define wht normal is when nature has not defined it .....

Lets live and let other live .... but it is so difficult to follow in a prejudiced society

Jeevan,

I appreciate your thought. Most of the governments know about it. Unfortunately they may not pose a good percentage of votes for the politicians to think anything about them favourably since they do not live concentrated in one place. One day they will be regarded. It may take some time. Probably if one of them become very closer to a politician things may change.

Jeevan,

You did a great thing.

You made us to think about this. I had watched them in many films. But, now only iam realizing their feelings. They are human beings, just like us. We have been hurting them for fun and still its going.

We have to treat all of them equally. If we are in a very high position, we have to give respect to those who are working under us, even to the sweepers, person who brings coffee, tea, lunch, etc. Just say thanks for the work they are giving us, with a smile. Iam sure you wont lose anything for this....

dear jeevan,
we must read 'living smile vidhya' to know their real feelings.in what way are they harmful to society? how many sins do the normals commit? all the great normal 'men' do a lot of crime.i strongly argue that they be given all equal rights and they should not be treated as abnormal.

Karthik b.s. – You are right karthik! People need to think the same.

Balar – Yes, it must be avoid. With just making fun, they should make think all about them.

Alok – The voice from every normal being would raise them in society… people should start supporting them. The screens should be a forefront to make finer.

Balaji – Thanks. But what the small-big screens doing are worst, they are ridiculing them. Even they are human in nature, so a place is needed in society. When it’s sometime for politicians to show real care for the normal’s, it would be years timing to concern for them, without know when was that time.

Kalai – Nice to have u here :) Thank u. if we see, women’s were still not happen to treat equal to men in today’s time also, then where to equalize for them. U said well, we all human in basic first.

Venus66 – Thanks for sharing too!

Keshi – Yes keshi, all should think about there life. Thanks.

Ponniyinselvan – I strongly agree with ur thought. Would check her blog, if u have the address of the blog. pls…
