A petition has been filed in the Delhi High Court alleging that uneducated and unemployed youths are being exploited in the name of jobs at high-end hotels.

“Systematic fraud is being committed by some unscrupulous persons on the uneducated and unemployed persons under the garb of providing jobs in five-star hotels with daily payments,” the petition said.


The plea, filed by lawyer C.R. Jaya Sukin, seeks directions from the court to ensure casual labourers wages in five-star hotels, restaurants and banquet halls.

She has also opposed publication of posters and handbills, promising immediate jobs in three- and five-star hotels in the national capital.

On seeing such posters, unemployed people contact publishers. The advertisers promise them job and fleece them in the name of registration and other fees, like dress and advance service charges.

Following the payment, the applicants are sent to parties, marriages and other functions at three- and five-star hotels and other places for cleaning dishes, disposing waste, loading and unloading for 10-12 hours and are told it was part of training without stipend. These fraudsters collect wages of these people from hotels and keep them, according to the petition.

Hijras are a community of people who include eunuchs, intersex, and transgender people

When a baby is born in an Indian household-they invite hijra to shower the newborn with their blessings for their blessings confer fertility, prosperity, and long life on the child. But when that child grows up we teach them to avert their eyes when a group of hijras passes by, we pass on the behaviour of treating hijras as lesser humans to our children. Whenever a child raises a question related to gender identity or sexuality they are shushed down. We're taught to believe that anything "deviant" and outside of traditional cis-heteronormativity is something to be ashamed of. This mentality raises anxious, scared queer adults who're ashamed of their own identity, and adults who bully people for "queer behaviour".

Hijras are a community of people who include eunuchs, intersex, and transgender people. They worship the Hindu goddess of chastity and fertility, Bahuchara Mata. Most hijras, but not all, choose to undergo a castration ceremony known as "nirvana" in which they remove their male genitalia as an offering to their goddess. The whole community is vibrant with hundreds of people with hundreds of ways of expression, the true identity of a hijra is complex and unique to each individual. In India, hijras prefer to refer to themselves as Kinner/Kinnar as it means the mythological beings who excel at singing and dancing.
