Bhopal eunuch adopts deserted infant

Driven by a long nurtured dream to enjoy motherhood, a eunuch in Bhopal has adopted a deserted infant here.

By Ram Chand Sahu

Bhopal, May 22 : Driven by a long nurtured dream to enjoy motherhood, a eunuch in Bhopal has adopted a deserted infant here.

The eunuch, Suraiya Nayak, has christened the baby-girl as Khushboo (fragrance) and taken a vow to bring her up with full care and utmost love. Nayak hopes the child will help in filling a gap in an otherwise lonely life.

"We are very happy after adopting this child. We cannot have our own children, so we thought of adopting one. We got this child from a hospital where it was abandoned by somebody," said Nayak.

Today, Nayak and other friends take turns tending to infant. The new responsibility has taken precedence over everyone's routine to move out of the house to earn their bread and butter.

In India, Eunuchs earn their livelihood through dancing and singing on occasions like marriages, or the birth of children.

Nayak says every attempt will be made to keep the baby-girl away from singing or dancing. She will be provided with a good education.

"I want to educate her. After she reaches the age of three, I will send her to a hostel where she will be away from this environment. I wish to make her a doctor and marry her off in a proper manner," Nayak added.

Nayak also wishes to adopt many more children and provide a loving home to them.

According to official figures, there are 11 million abandoned children in India out of which 90 per cent of them are girls. Most who are discarded for various socio-economic reasons.

It is believed there are about one million eunuchs in India.
