अभी न पर्दा गिराओ, ठहरो,--------

अभी न पर्दा गिराओ, ठहरो, कि दास्ताँ आगे और भी है
अभी न पर्दा गिराओ, ठहरो!
अभी तो टूटी है कच्ची मिट्टी, अभी तो बस जिस्म ही गिरे हैं
अभी तो किरदार ही बुझे हैं।
अभी सुलगते हैं रूह के ग़म, अभी धड़कते हैं दर्द दिल के
अभी तो एहसास जी रहा है
यह लौ बचा लो जो थक के किरदार की हथेली से गिर पड़ी है
यह लौ बचा लो यहीं से उठेगी जुस्तजू फिर बगूला बनकर
यहीं से उठेगा कोई किरदार फिर इसी रोशनी को लेकर
कहीं तो अंजाम-ओ-जुस्तजू के सिरे मिलेंगे
अभी न पर्दा गिराओ, ठहरो!

Census 2011 to have separate category for transgenders

PTI – Mon, Dec 13 1:34 PM IST
..New Delhi, Dec 13 (PTI) Government has accepted the recommendations of the Technical Advisory Committee to include transgenders as a separate ''Others'' category in the Census 2011.

After demands that transgenders be included in a separate category, the Home Ministry had referred the matter to the Committee, which has given nod for providing a third category other than male and female.

The Office of the Registrar General of India (RGI) said in an RTI reply that as recommended by the Technical Advisory Committee "transgenders would be given separate code i.e. ''3'' in the names of others, the ''1'' and ''2'' being meant for male and female respectively during the ensuing Census 2011."

"But it is to be reported only when the respondent wishes to return other than code-1 and code-2 and thus left at the choice of respondents to opt for code-3," the RGI said in an reply to RTI application filed by Bareli-based activist Dr.S.E.Huda.

In the current practise, the community is included in the Census as ''males''. The TAC had proposed that during census, males will be given code one, females two and for transgendered it will be ''code three'' which has been accepted by the Government.

An NGO led by Dr.Huda had petitioned the Prime Minister''s Office, the President''s Secretariat, the Home Ministry and the Registrar General''s Office on inclusion of transgenders as a different category.

It has also filed a petition before the Supreme Court.

The Planning Commission, meanwhile, has also recommended separate category for the transgenders in the Unique Identification Authority of India Project, according to a separate RTI reply from the Commission.
