“Hijra, The Third Gender” series
“Hijra, the Third Gender” series consists of the following books. They are all stories about “hijra” but each story is independent from each other.
A Japanese businessman travels to India and is deeply moved by the Roma-style music and dance that he saw in the state of Rajasthan. He actually falls in love with a tall beautiful dancer called Sangita. He is totally enchanted by Sangita, who takes him to a whole different world of “hijra”. The Japanese businessman is voluntarily (almost forcibly) changed into a “hijra” and experiences life as a hijra, then later as a prostitute. This story is his autobiography (which sounds real, but is a fiction) involving Japan, India, Thailand, the United States, and again, Japan. The story is really engaging, but his (her) talking style is something like “Forest Gump”.
The protagonist is born “intersexed”. His genitals look more like male than female, so is raised by his prostitute mother as a boy. However, he felt comfortable in a saree and walks his way through becoming a proud woman.
The protagonist is a boy who has an elder sister learning Kathak (one of the traditional dance forms in India) and he wishes to become as good a dancer as his sister. His mother supports his not-so-manly wishes, but finally, his father comes to know about it. His father disowns his son on the spot, and the son must leave his family and live on his own. The boy is (a kind of) saved by the “hijra” community and he (she) tries to become a Kathak dancer.
The protagonist is a son of IAS officer (selected elite Indian administrative officer) and a 12 year old cricket player. He is unexpectedly kidnapped and is forcibly castrated and feminized. He (now she) keeps receiving unfair/unexpected treatments and assaults. She doesn’t know who is the mastermind. At the end of the story, she realizes that she deserved such punishment.
The beautiful loving mother of a boy (the protagonist) dies, and his father (a navy captain) marries a Punjabi woman with two kids. The boy loves the new elder sister, but the new brother who happens to be of the same age as him is a nuisance. The stepmother makes every attempt to humiliate him and try to let his father to “disown” him, so that her own son can be the heir. He is framed by the stepmother to be feminized and become a “hijra”.
The son of a famous movie star is abducted by a mafia group for ransom. The father makes a series of mistakes in the “negotiation” of the mafia group, and as the result, the son is forcibly feminized.
This is the only comedy in the “Hijra, the Third Gender” series. An Indian entrepreneur makes a wrong bet during a drinking occasion with his friend. He must dress as a woman (hijra) 24×7 for a year. His bet was that his company will grow business even if the president is a hijra. If he should lose the bet, he must get a sex change surgery.

Greetings from Yu Sakurazawa
Hello, everyone. I am Yu Sakurazawa. Yu is a Japanese female name and is pronounced as “you”. I have been writing gender swap novels since 1998, so this is my 17th year as a fiction writer. I was born in Fukushima, Japan, have lived in United States for 8 years and now live in Chiba, Japan. My novels were all in Japanese until I published an English version of “Enchanted into the Third Gender” and after that I have been publishing English stories constantly. All my fictions have gender swap episodes in some way or another. Areas of my personal interest are fashion, tv-dramas and traveling. I traveled to India more than 10 times dressed in a Saree or Salwar Kameez (Punjabi dress)–soaked in Indian culture up to my neck. My personal experiences are reflected in my “Hijra, the Third Gender” series of books.
