Unless you are inside a car with the window up, there is no escape from the cross dressers in Bangalore traffic signal. They demand money! No coins and change any more. They start only at Rs 10. They are respected in the society (at least they are not looked like a show piece..) and now this respect and space is taken to advantage.
If you are on a two wheeler or an auto rickshaw stopped in a signal, you are bound to give money. Else, they start touching and annoying you. Once myself and my friend were returning from a morning drive. It was a signal near Hebbal that we noticed two cross dressers collecting money. So we took a 5 rupee coin in hand to give it to them. One of them came and got it. Soon after the other one too came, asking for money. We said we already gave it to the other one. She replied, "I don't know her. You give money to me." WTH. "No", said my friend in a stern voice. She replied, "If you won't giving money, I will kiss you." (WTF) We gave more money! There is no escape route.
Doesn't the law prevent them from annoying us? Is there something that could be done?
