Found an interesting article about a Hijra (eunuch) running for mayor.

LUCKNOW, India, Nov. 17 — An eunuch has joined the election race to become mayor of a northern Indian town, marking another step towards social acceptance for a community that has been reviled for centuries. No political party was willing to support 45-year-old Asha Devi for the civic polls in Uttar Pradesh state’s Gorakhpur, so she plunged into the hustings against mainstream groups as an independent.

DEVI HAS been joined in her campaign by a fellow eunuch who won a by-election earlier this year to become a member of the legislative assembly in neighboring Madhya Pradesh.

Thanks for the complete story to MSNBC:

Not a big deal in India , where we've had Hijdas as Prime ministers ( Chandra shekhar, Narasimha rao ) , Hijdas as Chief ministers( Laloo prasad yadav , jyoti Basu , E K Nayanar ) and hijdas as Political leaders ( Bal thakeray etcetc )
