“Save daughter, Save girl Child“
It’s really a shame that in 21st century we have to write this slogan. Girls are the best creation of God. I know how much tears I shed when my first son was born. My mother in law congratulated me for giving birth to a boy. She told me clearly in my first month of pregnancy that she will not accept girl child.
Why a female doesn’t accept another female? It’s not that I am unhappy with my sons. Both are caring, loving and sincere. Daughters are special and I wanted to have at least one daughter.
I don’t understand why females oppose giving birth to a girl child. Every other woman consoles a new mother if a girl child is born. They give advise to them to keep patience and have trust on God.
Why do we give so much importance to a male child? Nature maintains balance but we, as humans, have destroyed this balance. Tell me one thing today, from where do you find a girl for your boy for marriage? When girls are brutally killed and thrown away, who will marry your son?
Girls are welcomed in a family with heavy heart. It’s important to educate people. We are four sisters. My mother and father gave best education to us. They did not treat us like a burden. My eldest sister is an IAS officer, another one is a Professor and third one chose to be a home maker. My sister is taking care of my mother after my father’s death.
It’s really important to understand the value of a girl child. Mothers, sisters, daughters , all are females. Killing a girl is the most heinous crime. You will not get any blessings for Kanya pujan if you hate your daughters and worship Goddess Durga. Maa Durga won’t accept anything if you kill her daughters on earth. I feel suffocated to see educated people doing fast, hawan and upay to give birth to a boy. Doctors and medical officers must come forward to educate people. Terminating pregnancy or use other methods to kill a girl in womb are killing our humanity. Please don’t be a part of this ugly business. Give life to a girl to save this planet.
Save Girls, save humanity, save our mother Earth.
