For the first time in Kerala, a transgender couple Ishan and Surya would be soon tying the knot next month on May 10 as per Special Marriage Act.
While Ishan (33) has undergone a sex change operation from a female to male, Surya (31) underwent a surgery from male to female surgery. Both Ishan and Suryas families support their decision to marry. Surya, who was one of the first transwomen to obtain voter ID in Kerala during Assembly elections in 2016, feels optimistic and hopeful about more such acts in the society in the near future by her community.
Ishan, who quit school when he was in his third grade due to gender issues, said that his family finally understood that he should be allowed to live his life. Surya, who underwent a sex change operation after her two sisters got married, got the surgery done without informing her family due their lack of support then.
When Nation Next spoke to Vidya Kamble, who became the first transgender woman from Nagpur to be selected as the member judge at Lok Adalat, said, I would like to congratulate Ishan and Surya for this wonderful step. I’m glad they took this decision to marry. States like Kerala, Madhya Padesh, etc., are a bit liberal in this approach than Maharashtra.”
She added, “But, gradually, Nagpur is also opening up to this. I hope many more people come forward and settle in their lives. We transgenders like others need a person in our lives with whom we can share our feelings, happiness and sorrow. I hope we all think like Ishan and Surya.

Food delivery app Zomato was quick to respond by asking the ace cricketer to ‘feel free to order an ice cream from his wife and actor Anushka Sharma’s phone.’
The tweet read, “feel free to order ice cream from bhabhi’s phone if that will help.” However, many users anticipated Kohli’s tweet to be an advertisement for a brand.

Anil Deshmukh granted permission to travel outside Mumbai
Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) leader and former Home Minister of Maharashtra Anil Deshmukh on Monday was granted permission to travel outside Mumbai for four weeks by a special court on Monday. Deshmukh had sought permission to visit his constituency, which is also his hometown, Nagpur.
The application was filed by Deshmukh through his lawyer, Inderpal Singh, stating that he is a native of Nagpur with deep family roots in the city apart from being an elected representative of his constituency.
“The applicant craves a benevolent indulgence of this court to permit him to travel outside Greater Mumbai, including District Nagpur, for a limited duration of about four weeks so as to maintain continuity in his social and family ties and also visit his original and permanent home/constituency,” the plea stated.
The plea further added that “the applicant needs to have due legal consultation with his lawyers in New Delhi for further course of strategy in the present and connected cases.”
