This is a unique case. The person is entitled to change his sex as an individual. This is a free country. It is indeed extraordinary that when he applied through the procedure to amend his sex orientation, it was summarily rejected. The babudom rejected it telling him that changing name,caste or religion was permitted by law but that there was,however,no such provision when it came to gender. If the law has a void, it surely can be changed because the change of sex is a real issue that is in the real world and as a citizen he has a right to be a 'person' and not a 'non person'! What a way to go!
