The death of transgender Ananya, who was found hanging in a flat in Kochi, is being discussed. Ananya was the first transgender jockey in Kerala. He had filed his nomination in Vengara constituency in the last assembly elections but later withdrew.
Alexander’s father said Ananya was beaten by hospital staff. Many times the doctor’s service was not available. Ananya’s father said that she did not get better treatment from the hospital. Meanwhile, it was decided to perform Ananya’s post-mortem under the guidance of expert doctors. The action was taken at the request of the family and the transgender community.
One year ago, to be precise, on June 14, 2020, Ananya Alex shared a post on Facebook. Sharing her joys and hopes before the crucial stage of her life, she wrote about transforming her own body and mind with the way she wants to.
‘It’s an important day in the journey to train the body as a transgender young woman. I want to live my life without the rhythm of anyone else … whether it is with the body or the mind or with every decision and attitude in life ‘. – About Ananya. But that big dream and the journey to it were beyond the painful words that came to her. That’s why she finally decided to go to another world without pain for more than a year.
‘To those who ask me if I am male or female, I have to say over and over again,‘ I am neither male nor female, I am a transgender person ’. I do not want to be confined to men and women, but I want to live by calling out to the world that ultimate truth with the struggle of life, with the firm belief that there are transgender people, both male and female, as well as a lot of people of different genders in this world and that everyone has every right to live as they please. Let’s go then ‘. – Ananya wrote with her selfie taken before entering the operating room.
But after that gender reassignment surgery, Ananya came out with a pain in her body that dragged her to her death. It was the moments when the pain squeezed every cell of her body that plunged her later life into misery. That dream, which he had cherished all his life, began to haunt her like a distorted truth. Not only did it not get what it wanted, but the body was in the throes of an unexpected migratory pain.
She finally opened it up to the unbearable mental and physical torture.
“It simply came to our notice then. My vagina is like a cut. It’s like sitting outside in the green moon. What would happen if we had a tunnel in our hands. It is a condition like that. A condition that is not similar to the vagina. I have no hesitation in saying this openly. I want justice. I need to change eight to twelve sanitary pads a day. Sometimes you don’t even have the money to buy a pad
Speaking so boldly despite being so tired is because I want to live. The pain on the private part is unbearable. Sometimes I sit with my hands clasped because of the pain when I sit for a long time. Malayalees were shocked to hear what Ananya said in an interview given to an online channel. But before it could be discussed, Ananya committed suicide. The truth is that Ananya, who had given confidence to the entire trans community as the flag bearer of survival, could not resist the pain she was experiencing in the end.
Ananya had told her friends about the pain she was having during discussions at the clubhouse. At one point, they profiled the surgical site.
During the discussion at the clubhouse, Ananya spoke about the shortcomings of her surgery. Ananya said in the discussion that she could not even urinate or laugh and was in excruciating pain.
One year later, just days before he died, he shared a post on Facebook on July 13, 2021, stating the need to be careful about gender reassignment surgery and not to rush.
‘I have no doubt that surgery will be the greatest desire of your life. But we need to approach surgery in the most prudent way. The hospital and the doctors we choose are so important
It is essential that we examine very carefully how skilled the doctor we are approaching in this matter is and how much experience he has. When one person can prove it to the doctors, the next one will come. We have only one life
Before surgery, ask in detail what they are going to do with our body. Gone are the days when natural surgeries were performed in the past without even knowing whether to die or live. The world has come a long way in transgender health.
The lives and bodies of transgender people are important only to transgender people. We are just creatures with no people or rules to ask and tell the rest.
So take care of yourself ‘. – Ananya wrote in the note.
