Almost every other transgender person has to face abusive behavior in the society they live in. Consequently, they face problems ranging from social exclusion to discrimination, lack of education facilities, unemployment, lack of medical facilities and so on. To make their lives better and to make a mark with this identity, they have to take the tough path. Thus, India is also progressing towards a positive thought to help its transgender community.

In order to facilitate the members of the transgender community, India is going to open its first university dedicated totally to transgender people. The university includes education right from class one to PG and even do research and get a Ph.D. degree.

 

The country’s first university for transgender is going to open in Uttar Pradesh’s Fazilnagar block of Kushinagar district. It is being built by the Akhil Bhartiya Kinnar Siksha Seva Trust (All-India transgender education service trust).

“It is the first of its kind in the country where members of the transgender community will be able to get the education and the process of has already been initiated. From January 15 next year, two children who are brought up by the community members will get admission and from February and March other classes will start,” said the president of the trust Dr. Krishna Mohan Mishra.

“In the university, the transgender community will be able to study right from class one to PG and even do research and get a Ph.D. degree,” he added.

MLA Ganga Singh Kushwaha said members of the community will get the education and will be able to give a new direction to the country.

The transgender community expressed their sheer happiness over the opening of the university.

“I am happy that we will be educated and get respect in the society. Education has power and I am sure it will not only change our lives but also the lives of others,” said Guddi Kinnar, one of the members of the community.

 

Previously collective efforts have been made in order to elevate the transgender community at Viswanathapuram, Madurai, Tamil Nadu. In 2016, India’s first transgender library has been opened as a part of the transgender resource center with an aim to increase awareness about the ambisexual people in the country.

Although, according to the first-ever study on the rights of transgenders conducted by Kerala Development Society on behalf of NHRC says 96 percent of transgenders are denied jobs and are forced to take low paying or undignified work for livelihood like badhais, sex work and begging. Around 50 to 60 percent of transgenders have never attended schools and faced discrimination.

As per the 2011 census, there are 4 lakh 90 thousand transgender people in India and about 21 thousand are in Tamil Nadu.

Hopefully, this new initiative by the Akhil Bhartiya Kinnar Siksha Seva Trust (All-India transgender education service trust) would really stand as a milestone for improving the lives of transgender people of our country as a whole.

The greatest technological innovations that will go mainstream in the new 2020 decade

5 Greatest Technological Innovations in 2020

Artificial Intelligence

Artificial intelligence or AI is talked about a lot these days. It’s in your camera, It’s in your phone, It’s in the video games, it’s being used to predict the possibility if your train ticket confirming and even our ministers are talking about it. But many people are still confused if it’s an actual technological innovation or just a marketing gimmick to stand apart or something that’s going to take away your job.

Whatever it may be, AI is here to stay. And it’s going to creep into many more facets of your life in this new decade. Experts predict that some new applications of AI will include assisting doctors in prescribing the exact dosage of medicines for every patient and, assisting lawyers

by keeping a database of every case ever fought, in mass surveillance programs of the government, it’s going to predict the stock market and the most unexpected of all, AI is going creative. AI is expected to produce art in the form of painting, scriptwriting for movies and much more.

By the way, do you know about the Chinese newsreader who does not exist? That’s an AI.

IoT

Simply Internet of Things is a term used to describe the connection of various devices with the Internet with the aim of reducing human effort. IoT platform allows all the connected devices to collect their data where the platform processes the data to study human behavior and adapt the device specifically for that user. One way that we already make use of IoT is in wearable devices. We check heart rate, calories burnt and steps to track our fitness goals. But few of the applications that have not gained traction yet but are expected to do soon include smart cities that can manage traffic and energy use, using wearable devices to call for emergency services, and in agriculture where farmers can use IoT to synchronize their equipment, to connect all the devices at our homes like air conditioners, lights, TV, etc. You can remotely control your devices through your smartphone. You can cool down your room before you reach home from work, you can microwave food so it’s ready by the time you reach, you can put on music and much more. Its uses will only be limited by our imagination.

Mixed Reality

Imagine there’s a cricket match between your favorite teams and you know it’s going to be huge, but you could not get a hold of the tickets, or maybe it’s in another far off city or country where it’s not possible for you to go. you’d be pretty disappointed right? But imagine if we tell you you can feel all the excitement and thrill of the match without even leaving your drawing-room. Mixed Reality will do that for you. With the help of a VR headset, you can be virtually present right in the stadium, in whichever seat you want to be, feel the energy of the crowd and that too with your favorite people.

But if you are not into sports, you can also visit your favorite tourist destinations, visit cities, temples, museums. You can take a view of the sun rising from your favorite mountain peak whenever you like, or wander around the streets of Rome in real-time without spending so much on travel.

you can be present with your family on important occasions while being on a business trip far away from home. Wouldn’t that be amazing? But that’s not all, while you are walking on the streets of your favorite city, your headset will also guide you with voice and

visual signals, just like a tour guide.

Driverless cars

So you’ve seen Uber experimenting and Tesla boss talking about it, but how far are we really, from sitting inside a driverless car? We’d say pretty close. Cars are already assisting drivers in parking and cruising on highways. They are also sensing danger from oncoming obstructions on the road and taking necessary steps to prevent it. But needing no driver is a whole another thing, there are laws and then there are accountability issues in case of mishaps. But manufacturers are very hopeful. These cars can communicate with other vehicles, support devices, traffic lights, and physical obstructions. They can divert vehicles in case of heavy traffic and take the shortest route. You can have a meeting

while your car takes you to your office or watch a movie and relax on the way home. You’d finally be able to text and drive and the police won’t stop you.

Genetic engineering

We have been eating genetically modified food for years already, for their resistance against some diseases and good yield, but soon we’ll be able to do the same to our off-springs. That’s right. We can make our children immune to that one disorder that runs in the family and give them longer and healthier lives. Through gene editing, you can alter a few genes to make your kid become resistant to diabetes or heart disease, but on the lighter side, you can also make them taller, have thicker hair, clear skin and much more. Many have doubts over it on ethical grounds and there a few countries that are willing to go ahead with it in the face of recent research. Scientists argue that we’d be able to cure many diseases that have no treatment today and to address ethical concerns, it can always be regulated by the government.

So these were a few of the technological trends that we are expecting to be talked about much more in this new decade. All technology aims to reduce redundant efforts that do not benefit us at all. Everybody would be happy if we can avoid driving through that evening traffic rush that ruins our mood every day. Physical barriers to enjoyment would become obsolete. You can be virtually present anywhere you want anytime you want. You can save your family’s health and future and live a better life by reclaiming your most important asset, time.
