Book Review: I am also a Human by Jasbir Singh

Zeenat is a transgender, but she is a ‘Human’ first. She is struggling to live a life like a normal human being, but she wasn’t aware of the society. Her parents sent her to an orphanage when she was just twelve years old. She spent her childhood at that orphanage. When she came to understand the different faces of the society, she realised that a few people on the other side are trying to kill her. She ran from the orphanage. She started working at Benz cafe, where she met Rajveer, a rich, handsome guy from Delhi. Her simplicity made him fall in love with her. She was running from him because she knew her destiny. She lost everyone whom she loved. A few people were against their friendship too. They were planning the worst things for her. Things got all the more worse for her in her life when they both met with an accident and she lost him, even before telling him about her feelings. She lost every reason to live. She tries to commit suicide many times, but failed. One fine day, when she opened her eyes, she found herself at the brothel.
But this is not the end of her story. She still has so many things to say.
Will she find another reason to live?
Will she run from the brothel?
Will she be able to achieve her aim?
Will she find answers to all her questions?
