“Is there a law permitting sex change in our country? And if at all there is one,then why didn’t the hon’ble court bother to find out what we think as parents?” This is how Supti Ranjan Barua,father of Bidhan Barua,whose sex change plea was on Monday granted by the Bombay High Court,reacted.

Supti Ranjan,a railway employee here,calls it fate that his son had sought a sex change.

“It is nothing but fate. My son,whom I had brought up with so much love and care,has stabbed me on my back,” he said.

He wondered whether there was any law that permits sex change,and that too without bothering about the family. “I know my son is an adult. But that does not mean he can ask for anything and the court will grant that. Don’t we all live in families and are part of a society? Why didn’t the hon’ble court even for once bother to find out what we as parents feel? This is inhuman and disgusting,” he said.

“He was a good boy. His sudden behaviour has not only shocked me but also brought disrepute to our family. I have my old parents,brothers and their families living in the same campus. Where do we hide our faces?” he added.

Bidhan had run away from home on March 31 and reached Mumbai,where he had approached a hospital to undergo a sex change operation.
