The Value of Being Different
Many times, in life, people make fun of us because we behave, think or work differently from them. I have been made fun of at times because I tend to stammer sometimes. But I met a very different person who told me: “We stammer only for two reasons. One, if we are nervous or afraid; and two, if we have too many thoughts in our mind.”
And this ‘different’ person was Iqra. My mom told me I was going to meet a ‘drag queen’. I was confused about what the term means. And Mom said: “She was born with the body of a boy, but a mind of a girl.” But when I went to meet her, I was amazed to see she did not look like a man at all! Yes, I was sure she was wearing a hairpiece, but she had tied her saree very beautifully and her voice was very calm and soft, just like a lady. See the picture and you will know what I mean. She looked perfectly okay to me, I wonder why Mom said people are sometimes afraid to talk to her?
