Women's day save the girl child (Beti Bacho Beti Padhao)!

409 views

Published on

My small contribution to remind all of us the importance of saving mankind by putting STOP to female infanticide. My presentation has some statistics to support my argument and they might be old but alarming enough and the ways to bring about the change in the mindset of people at large.
My major concern is the changing lifestyle of urban India where women themselves opt for sex determination as they prefer to have a single child and this menace gets unnoticed.
The presentation concludes with some suggestions for bringing the desired change. I hope and pray that we all get serious about this issue before it is too late
Thank You
