“I like the Thirunangais. I was born in Mumbai. When I was small, my mother would invite the Thirunangais to put drishti for me. People invite the Thirunangais and honor them as well as invite them to bless a newborn. They are in no way inferior to anyone. I like their self confidence. They must be given their rightful place in society. Instead of making fun of them, we must encourage them.”
