No group in the Indian society has had their health and livelihoods so badly decimated by COVID-19 pandemic as India’s transgender community. The global pandemic has exacerbated the troubles for the trans community and they need help and support from the society more than ever now.
?In a first, Lalitya Foundation and Sarathi Trust from Nagpur provided nutrition and utility kits to hundreds of people from the transgender community on the 11th of November 2020 in Nagpur.
Lalitya Foundation as well as Sarathi Trust believe that Service to Humanity is Service to God and thus, are making a miniscule? contribution towards the trans community.
A member from the transgender community from Nagpur, Vidya Kamble told Nation Next, We are in a very bad situation. I’ve seen may downs in my life but the past few months of COVID-19 have been torrid more than ever. The pandemic has hit hard on our community. I thank Sarathi Trust and Lalitya Foundation who at least are thinking about us.
I’m the sole breadwinner of my family and only I know how we are surviving in this crisis added transwoman, Anchal Verma.
She also said, Members of the community are facing a higher risk of contracting COVID-19 due to their living conditions. Hence, I urged for help from the society through NGOs and voluntary organisations like Sarathi and Lalitya.
President at Lalitya Foundation Prasad Pimprikar, Nikunj Joshi and Anand Chandrani from Sarathi Trust, Dr Manohar Roy, Amit Nagrare, Abhay Roy, Ritesh Chourasia, Abhishek Chourasia and many more team members jointly made this effort a great success.a

Nagpur citizens to revel The Raaas Garba next year!
Since The Raaas enchanted and enthralled Nagpur with its quality garba in its first year in 2018, the demand for encore has been reverberating the city. To cater to the huge public demand, the organisers of the king of garbas have decided to continue The Raaas next year on. Like its first year, The Raaas Garba will be presented to Nagpur in association with Nation Next in 2023. Mahesh Kukreja, the key organiser said, “Because of some reasons, we, earlier, thought of giving the event a break.”
He added, “Then COVID-19 struck the world. Now we plan to continue it from next year onwards. While I express my gratitude to Nagpurians to make the event a huge hit, I request the city’s garba revellers to not get fooled as a few garbas are falsely claiming to be The Raaas. We’ll be back next year for sure!”
