I’m taking this topic as in our country, a campaign is being started- “Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao” (Save Daughter, Educate Daughter) but still people go for Ultrasound and get the sex checked of unborn baby. Why, why , why?? Don’t they have sense? If it’s a girl by any chance, then the pregnant lady is being pressurized to abort the child. Are we, males, really do know how difficult is to have a baby? I respect and salute women from the bottom of my heart and thank GOD to give this special attribute to females.
This is a very serious issue of our country. In Haryana, the female to male ratio is the lowest in our country. And they are more keen on reservation rather than saving Daughters. *Sigh*
Daughters are Diamonds which should be treated very delicately. But, in our country, Daughters are unsafe from the day they are born. They are being raped and the rapists are juveniles. Reason- there is no law for juveniles in our country, even no law can be made after seeing the increased juveniles doing crimes. Take example of 16th December rape, that incident has shaken every citizen of the country except the politicians(in my opinion) and see the final result, the main accused is free and living his life and even provided with a sewing machine. To see it from one side, it is good as Govt. is giving another chance to a rapist to start a good life. But, such people don’t deserve another life or another chance. What he has done was unimaginable and the only punishment was death or life sentence. Since, there was no law, more juveniles are either being hired to held crimes or they did themselves because they know they will be free as there is no law for them.
A Diamond in the form of coal goes through a rough and tough journey to become a Diamond and so is the Daughter. She also takes the rough and tough journey to become a good wife, Daughter-in-law, friend, mother, teacher and so many roles she plays in her entire life. It’s like a movie which ends with her last breath only. She never complains for any role of her life. The best part of this movie is that she plays all these roles at one time, in a single day, each and every moment.
We worship Durga maa. I see people who eat non- vegetarian food, smoke and drink but during Navratras, they don’t consume these things for those 9 days. Then, why can’t we respect women. Don’t they deserve it? They do. Yes, they do. Our country is proud of its Daughters- Saina Nehwal, Sania Mirza, Tania Sachdev, Anjum Chopra, Deepika Padukone, Priyanka Chopra, Aishwarya Rai Bacchan, Indira Nooyi, Shobhana Bhartiya, Ritu Kumar, Ritu Beri, Anju Modi, Rina Dhaka etc, to name a few. Aren’t these making their parents proud. Ofcourse, they are. They don’t need a son.
My only urge to people of this country is to respect women around you. Stop rapes. Go to Thailand if you are so desperate. And request to the Govt. of this country to make some laws for juveniles please. This is a very serious matter. Our Govt. is busy in launching campaigns and programmes but not focusing on maintaining law and order in this country.
Save Daughter, Educate Daughter. A Daughter is no less than a son.
