The Blemished Perfectionist 4 Reviews

By: Iqra Ilyas

“It’s the society that decides these things. It decides whether you are allowed to choose or not. These things are fixed by the society and we just like puppets have to act as a society pull our strings.” I didn't remain the kid anymore. I became the growing teen and with the age the feature and specific attributes of that particular disease (the special disease which only can be cured by some fairies that live in the heaven as told by mom) starting appearing more rapidly on me.”

A story of a patient at the psychiatrist hospital, who is busy penning down the journey from his “existence” in this world to the events that led to his admission in that place! Pausing from his writing, only on hearing his name being called out, and then continues to ink the paper with his emotions and feelings.

Indifferent to the sick-abed people in his surroundings, labeled as he/she, the author has found answers to the time old questions that were left unheard and ignored!

Will he be able to let the world know of his struggles, his desires, and his thoughts? Or will he be non-existent like the majority?

"All your life ,you were a mixture. A mixture of hell and heaven,of saddness and happiness,of important and useless,of desire and orders,of humiliation and hidden honor and above all a mixture of male and female gender."
Transgender reflects a group of people who enjoys the least amount of respect or rights in a society. Due to the controversial nature and typical mindset of people, the subject of Transgender rights is not even discussed in sophisticated circles,somehow.This book depicts the barbaric society and how hardwork pays in the end.We need to realize that this is not merely a war that these individuals have to fight they are human beings, just like US.

"To all the mixtures of blemished perfectionist , across the other side of river, whom world called as Transgenders"
A beautiful tale about the "imperfections" of society which throws light upon the cruel unjustness of our society as well as the sweet fruits of courage and hardwork.

The fact that it does not involve biased justifications, Rather stating the very facts that our society imposes makes this writing a piece of art. I have read loads of material but never on transgenders better stating it as "mixed genders". Although we have taken rights from widows, orphans, independent women, disabled and all others yet we at least speak about them, but speaking about "mixtures" that is really a big deal. We always say this issue can wait but no. Every sigh being hushed, every tear they shed, every smile taken away, we as whole shall pay. We all shall pay.
The limit is the thinking not the act itself. Lets this be eye awakening. And treat all kinds of genders equally. Because we can err but Allah, He can never err. He is Perfect and its the very moment we learn to respect the imperfections as well.

I as a writer, but now as a reader, reviewing this with a great heart. the character is a mixture dissolving the worse realities of life as its component. sometime it's not necessary to prove your identity to the society. but the acceptance of your identity by yourself is more important. it is necessary to live your life within yourself.
as a writer, I have left this story as a sort of broken one. there are lots of reason behind this. one of which is also a message to all the readers out there;
"the beauty of things doesn't lie in how things are completed and perfect but in how they are left incomplete and imperfect ."
