Navroji Hill Road No 4, Umerkhadi

Work Space Mumbai: Street-side Tambola (Bingo/Housie)

You've seen hijras clapping at traffic lights, outside shops, flagging down vehicles on unlit stretches of highways, or outside the huts that lined Tulsi Pipe Road before BMC backed by people with paintbrushes drove them away to places that's out of car's reach. But the much maligned hijras also do other things to make ends meet. Like this enterprising hijra (in blue and as well-dressed as the women around) from Umerkhadi, close to Sandhurst Station who was holding a Tambola session on the pavement. And definitely more participation than the show named Bingo! that Abhishek Bachchan hosted.

Work Space Mumbai Series.
