Kumbh Mela, which is to be held in Prayagraj, will for the first time witness a Kinnar (transgender) 'akhada'. Terming it as "akhada beyond sexuality", Kinnar Akhada's head priest Laxmi Narayan Tripathi said, "For us, this participation is about mainstream society accepting us." On Sunday, members of the Akhada took part in an entry procession called 'Peshwai', for the Kumbh.
