Many years ago when it was past there lived a group of Nomad(banjara). In this group more than five and six family lived together.This group visit all over India and stay one place one or two months.They did dance and circus for living the life and earn money.
Their girls was very beautiful and charming. It was the advantage of their earning.Once when the group of Nomad stay in Jaypur,A boy named Ajay attract on one girl's beauty. Girls name was Sangeeta and she was more beautiful than other girls. Ajay saw his job of dancing and other activity,he was fan of her.He wanted to talk with her but did not find her alone. He follow her two or three day and finding her alone he praposed her. Sangeeta did not know what to do.It was happen on first time when a boy praposed her.
She said that she wanted some time to think.Ajay had no problem on this so he left her that time but he dont stop to follow her.Sangeeta meet him one day and said that she think but she didn't know about him. Then Ajay told him that he was an orfan child and he adopted by a rich family. She said that she was not rich and what will he do when his parents dont accept her. He told her that now he had his own business in Nagpur so they would marry there and he did not tell his parents about her family. These types of discussion go on three hour and after this they be a lover of each other.
After some days Sangeeta parents also had doubt that something was happening between Ajay and Sangeeta. Her father met Ajay alone and Ajay told everything to him. After it All banjara family knew about their love.So Ajay and Sangeeta have no wall to love.
All arrangement set and Their marriage decided after fifteen days.
But one day before five day of marriage,When Ajay went to the banjara family,he saw that all male dressed in female clothes and All women dressed as male. He asked Sangeeta about the crossdressing. She told him that she did not know everything but my father told you everything.
When Ajay went to her father,who dressed in a traditional lehenga choli in black colour,asked the reason of this type of dressing. Then her father told him about the story of the past and how it began.
They said that all person knows that we,banjara group have its our culture.You see the crossdressing is not only in these days,Our Lord also crossdress.As Krishna dressed as Shyamali,Lord Vishnu as Mohini and also Lord Shiva as Ardhnarishwar.So Crossdressing is not horrible,only just fun or something else.Then they tell about his group insident when it begans.They told that this story told by his grandfather and him of his grandfather.The time was sixteen century and our group was rich.We didn't visit here and there.King called our group for dance and other cultural activities.
Once when we return from a kingdom,we stayed in night in a lonely place,where our group start chatting at around the fire.When the discussion went that the woman do nothing only cooking food and they are so weak in personality. Discussion stop there and Woman also take charge in discussion and said that they were not weak but men thinks that they were poor.In this discussion they challenge him to do all woman's work for seven days.Men of the group agree of this but women had another condition also about men dressed also in women's clothes.This gave shock to all men,they said that was not right why they dressed.Women said that Men did all house work but they did not knew the feel of it without dressing and all things that we wear in daily uses. Men said that the discussion closed and we did not do anything.For this decesion women's anger reached on his peak and they did not want that golden chance slip on their hand so they said that if this was not done they did not do any work for seven days and also the dance for the king.This create a big problem because without women program had useless so All men were ready about all things.So next day all women dressed tgeir husband and kids as girl and all men did housework. Women also dressed as men. This challenge was being very hard for all men and they was tired in only three days and they requested to stop the challenge and they lose. They said that now they know that woman's work not easy and they was not weak. All womens had some discussion and said that they left them only one condition that in every three year on same these days all men and women crossdressed. They agreed on this.
Her father said that from that time this is being in every third year So now you knew all the things my son so whats your openion about this.Ajay told him that he did not try it and he did not know the excitement of this but he think that now a days is very popular.He also said that he did not want crossdressing in future. But Sangeeta's father said that he did not think so becaise it is in his culture and they celebrate it like a festival and Ajay should respect the culture.
Between this Sangeeta came there and took part in arguements.She asked Ajay that he would know about the crossdressing.when Ajay say something,Sangeeta's father said in the middle that Ajay had not interested in this,he said that it is useless thought and he also said that he might not follow it in future. From this Sangeeta got angry and she said that she wanted that our marriage also held in these day so I want thd crossdressong marriage.That was very shocking to Ajay,He was speechless and said after sometime that it is not possible.Sangeeta said what problem he has,also she said that this type of marriage was only done about ten times and all couple had more love than others. Ajay wanted to destroy that thoughts but he was helpless so he put a point that he could not do it because he did not do in the city andall friends laugh at him.
Sangeeta was looking in cool mind and said that it is not a problem because this type of marriage happens in our forefather group lived in Himalyas velley and there was a big temple of their lord and this group was away from the crowd.Ajay did not think about it but he did not want to crossdress.Sangeeta and her father insist him by sweet force. Ajay said that he want some time to think but had no more time because after four days his marriage was fixed so he take one day to think.
Nexy day he came and said very scielently that he think most of this and he was ready for this because he loved Sangeeta very much and he cant live without her. So it was fixed then tne next day they visit to himalaya velleys and it take twenty hour.
