Laxmi Narayan Tripathi. Laxmi, a hijra, eunuch,  faces the truths on the Star plus reality show Sach ka saamna with great confindence and aplomb.

The show brings to the fore the multifaceted persona of Laxmi, from running an NGO named Astitva to standing up for the rights of her community.

Laxmi accepted herself as she is and worked her way to carve a niche for herself.

On the show, Laxmi braves personal questions like, “Does anyone in your family address you as a man when you are at home and as a woman when you are in public?” And, “If it was your parent’s dying wish would you leave the hijra community and live as a man?”
