While sharing Saisha’s picture, Hina penned a long note talking about the complexities of gender and identities. She wrote, “Identity can originate on the basis of gender but to identify with it, one has to be soulfully connected to it. The warmth and inclusiveness, the creativity and liberalism, the calibre and candour that you possess dear Saisha… is based on the power of your soul”.

She added, “You choose to do what other forgo because of societal norms and I have witnessed it the way you have warmly included me on basis of my ability not the means to show it”.
