“Everything is fair in love”, said the Rajasthan teacher who underwent a sex reassignment surgery and married his female student recently. The couple’s unique story was reported by news agency ANI. Meera, a physical education teacher in Rajasthan’s Bharatpur, changed his gender and picked the name Aarav before marrying his student.

According to reports, Meera, now Aarav, met his student Kalpana during the physical education classes at the school located in Bharatpur. Talking to media, Aarav said that he had fallen in love with Kalpana during their time they interacted on the playground. He further mentioned that he always felt like a man in a woman’s body, and decided to go through sex reassignment.

“I was born a girl but I always thought I was a boy. I always wished to undergo surgery to change my gender. I had my first surgery in December 2019,” he was quoted saying. Interestingly enough, such was the love Kalpana had harbored for Aarav, that it wouldn’t have mattered if he would not have gone through the surgery.

“I loved him from the beginning. Even if he had not undergone the [gender affirmation] surgery, I would have married him,” Kalpana, a state-level kabaddi player said. Kalpana is all set to travel to Dubai for an international Kabaddi tournament.

The news comes weeks after Rajasthan government announced assistance for people seeking sex reassignment surgery.

The Facts of the Matter

Often, to love a person is to fight an entire generation of unaccepting norms and traditions. The same is true for inter-caste marriages, and the same is true for Aarav and Kalpana, a Rajasthan-based couple, that recently tied the knot after Aarav changed his gender and got closer to identifying himself as a man.

Reportedly, Aarav, previously Meera, was a physical education teacher, married his student, a state-level kabaddi player.

Meera was a Physical Education Teacher

A resident of Deeg, Meera was posted as a physical education teacher in Government Secondary School, Nagla, where Kalpana used to study. Meera, who always identified himself as a man, fell in love with Kalpana over the course of their interactions on and off the field of physical training in school.

In 2019, Meera decided to go through sex-reassignment surgery in order to be in body of someone he identified as. Following the first phase of the surgery, he also picked up the name Aarav for himself.

“Loved him from start”: Kalpana Says

Meanwhile, Kalpana, who was a student in the school Aarav taught at, had also fallen in love with her teacher. Interestingly, the fact that Aarav got a sex reassignment surgery doesn’t matter much to her, as she claimed that she would’ve loved him without the surgery.

“I loved him from the start. Even if he had not done this surgery, I would have married him. I went with him for the surgery,” Kalpana was quoted saying. The duo tied the knot earlier on November 2 this year and Kalpana is all set to play at an international kabaddi event later in January.
