Eunuchs Can Be So Taxing

Sounds like being a tax collector in India can be a real drag, if you take my meaning. Officials in Patna lined up sari-clad, makeup wearing eunuchs to dance, sing and dun tax evaders.

"Eunuchs are feared and reviled in many parts of India, where some believe they have supernatural powers," according to the BBC, but the picture on IBN Live looks like a Castro dance-a-thon. Strangest of all might be the A.P. backgrounder on Indian eunuchs.
