Devika Devendra S Mangalamukhi’s story is full of struggle. Born in Rajasthan, when Devika was two and a half years old, her father left the world. It took Devika 14 years to convince her mother that she was Devika in Devendra’s body. When Devika’s mother came to know about her, she became very angry.
After this, when Devika asked to leave the house, her mother locked her in the room. Devika escaped from that prison and boarded the train and came to Delhi. Then Devika found two transgenders and took them with her to her tent.
