Balia village



SOCIETY FORCES EUNUCH TO LEAD A MISERABLE LIFE .

Abondened by the family and shunned by the society, India's eunuch hit another low at one of its kind fair, where they are put up for sale for bidders to buy them on contracts to perform at marriage parties and other celebrations.

Most like the ones in Balia village the eunuchs get exploited and victimised by the middlemen, pimps and contractors, who lease them out of self-styled event managers. Depending upon their performance and capability bidders pay different amount to different eunuchs. However, with the entry of several females into dancing, Kinners have lost their business in the market as compare to the previous years. Indeed there is no official estimate of the eunuch's population but the unofficial figure counts nearly five lakhs.
