  • The rap song which speaks of unemployment faced by the transgender community and millennials alike is created by film-maker Shankhjeet De

To blow off some steam built in the pressure cooker called life, three transgender women - Madhu, Sarita and Nandini - have teamed up with an 'official' urban poor rapper - RcR in India’s First rap song by transgender women called 'HatSalaa'.

The rap song which speaks of unemployment faced by the transgender community and millennials alike is created by film-maker Shankhjeet De, features three transgender women from Odisha's Balangir and portrays the empty promises made by politicians, as their futures look still beak without jobs.

The video starts with an empty election rally representing the hollow guarantees given by the politicians before the polls with the three women screaming in background ' Hatt saala, chee salaa, thoo salaa, bhag saala' rejecting the continuous politics which have never helped them. It then introduces the arrogant and jobless millennial RcR, who rants about how he does not need people's views regarding his joblessness as he will succeed in life somehow (does not exactly mention how). He further builds brilliant dreams of a rich future with a degree but no job.

The video then introduces the three women, who rebuke RcR listing the various privileges and comforts he was born with. They then show all the other hard-working people like the flower vendor, juice vendor among a few, who stare vacantly asking 'Kahaan milega rozgaar? (where do we get work?) Then the trio along with RcR chant that all the speeches of employment done by politicians were useless.

Madhu, Sarita and Nandini end the video glaring at the camera, saying that they don't know how, but they will get their right to a job, while RcR declares that he will live every day to his fullest, singing and somehow finding a way out of his current predicament.
