The fact that many hizra by begging to be expensive, it is not in itself a scandal - in which India is a fairly acceptable activity - but it is how they do it. They are not asking for money, but the requirements, intrusive and intimidating. If you do not want to save them obscene, threatening language, and if necessary their lifting sari to show their scars. This shocking 'power' is usually the desired effect.
