Bizarre Hindu Transvestite Cult spreading in India

Duncan Riley

Traditional religious leaders in India have been left scratching their heads in amazement at new developments in the country.

A cult of sorts is forming in the country, with their beliefs centered around the Godess, Radha. Apparently, men are dressing up and living as women to be more like Radha, the godess lover of Krishna.

One of those men is retired railway worker from New Delhi. V K Saxena, 72, said:

"I can't put it into words properly but I feel more holy dressed as a woman. The Lord told me he wanted me as his bride."

When asked what he thought of the new practice of dressing in women's clothing to be closer to God, Senior priest Mohammad Ahangar replied: "There are many ways to be closer to the Lord without trying to be his girlfriend."
