Girl Child, Boon or Bane ???

People in Rajasthan has found a new way to kill the girl child . Now they do not feed the girl child properly , the don't provide any medical help required. The child itself dies after some time when it does not get proper care.
I bet this is not happening only in Rajasthan but all areas affected with female foeticide.
After knowing all these things, I realise, where are we exaclty heading to ?
where are we progressing to?
This makes a very big question mark to our development.Why are we trying to measure our development with male-population. Can we survive with out females?
In older times, people used to refer girls as Godess lakshmi(godess of wealth) and it was a belief  that if we disrespect the girl child , the evil would hover our lives and will affect our financial conditions. Perhaps, this is the reason behind financial downturn of India. The big question is why we don't want girls to be born?
Due to dowry??
If dowry is the reason behind it , then i do a  commintment to never accept any dowry in any form.
Is it due to egoistic nautre if our society that they think that there sisters, daughters might spoil their name by marrying the person of her choice.
Finally , to strongly curb this , young generation must come forward , because govts will do nothing expect passing the acts that do nothing good.

In the end, i will recite Guru Nanak dev 's written rhyme that says 'Why you say bad about those  who gives birth to Kings?

ਸੋ ਕਿਉ ਮੰਦਾ ਆਖੀਐ, ਜਿਤੁ ਜੰਮੈ ਰਾਜਾਨੁ । 


  1. Very well written! You do make a sense there, I hope all can realize the importance of females, because without them, our society couldn't move forward. We are all given birth by our mothers!

  2. The girl child issue is never ending. I pity the people who need to take away the innocent lives of girls. To what extent can men go just to show their power? I wonder when it'll all stop.

  3. This is not just show of power.There are certain things in our society that needed to be tackled like dowry. Many parents of girls feel they will have to give huge dowry on their daughter's marriage.They find an easy way by killing girl-child. Secondly, some male egoistic feel that when the girl will get young and may fall in love and what they consider is disgrace to their they try to press this thing before even happeneing of it.
    This thing will stop one day, i m assure. only youth like us can stop this. wheneven we get old, we can give full freedom to our children. and should pledge no dowry. Also should encourage love marriages.
