This is a story that transcends nationality🇮🇳🇵🇰 and gender. Gaurav, a kathak dancer💃 from Lucknow has undergone sex change and he’s now a she 💁🏻 and goes by the name, Meera. Meera braved opposition to go on with the operation😷 so that she could be with her love❤, Rizwan who’s from Pakistan🇵🇰. Meera said she grew up normal and had several relationships with women and was about to marry when she met Rizwan online. She was working on the topic of Sufism for her PhD, and Rizwan happened to be from a Sufi school of thought💡 and intrigued her. Meera, who has never met Rizwan and is likely to meet him when he visits her in March said, "The companionship grew stronger and a time came when he became my mehboob ❤(beloved). In Sufism, that is the pinnacle of love and devotion that crosses boundaries of caste, creed and even gender.''
