Story – Disowned by her family, Padmini Prakash became First Transgender Television Anchor

Disowned by her family when she was 13, she left home and attempted suicide, but was saved by some people. She says “After leaving home, I travelled all over. I enrolled into an undergraduate programme in commerce through distance education, but I had financial problems so I dropped out after two years.” As she continued on her journey. At 7 pm on an Independence Day, when the lights went on and the cameras started rolling in the Lotus News Channel studios, and she read out the day’s headlines from a teleprompter, Padmini became the first transgender television news anchor in the country.
