During the programme Annaprashan, or first food ritual, for several infants was also held. The DC said that since eunuchs are accorded the rare honor of being auspicious for babies, they performed the annaprashan, the Hindu rite of passage, in which babies are offered first food for a number of infants who were brought there for the purpose by their parents.

The Deputy Commissioner and the persons from third gender together completed this rite of passage ritual.

Amarjeet, the leader of the third gender community in Jamshedpur, said that for years there was a demand for such a camp and this demand was addressed by the DC on Monday and the entire third gender community is grateful to her for this.
