It is said that God created Mothers because He could not be present everywhere. But its unbelievable to realize that God’s representatives is continuously killing someone beautiful even before she can come out and see the beauty of the nature.
India is one the few countries where selective sex gender bias exists till today. It is believed that every year 12 million girls are born in the country but unfortunately only 1/3 of those survive. Some were killed in the womb, some at the time of birth, some due to ill health and some due to poor nutritional status.
India is growing dynamically in every field, today the rapid growth in economy, innovative technologies, and improved infrastructure has become nation’s pride. But bias against the girl child is still prevailing in the country. The most shocking fact is that the innovative and the hard high end technologies like biopsy, ultrasound, ultra scan are brutally killing the Indian girl child.
We Indians call our nation, Mother India and are great devotees of Goddess in various manifestations. But we all are openly playing double standard games with our country as well as our Goddess. One end we say that we worship Maa Saraswathi, Maa Durga, Maa Lakshmi and at the other end we are continuously destroying the precious gift of nature, a girl child.
