Allow me to live with you all!. - Girl Child

It was disheartening, when my ears burnt while tuning Aaj Tak news Channel yesterday…..A girl child was left abandoned by her parents in a fire of jungle. Bad kismet!. I should say it’s height of man slaughter.

Thanks to news channels which could broadcast such event for public notice.

This gives impression, such events keep happening in our country daily. There are no boundaries of such educated or uneducated man slaughter, be it be urban or rural, both involved. It’s difficult to catch hold of all such unfortunate incidents due to vast geographical spread of the country.

The good news in this case was her divine intervention to fall into the hand of a SAVER. Yes, the girl is safe and under treatment. However, the fact, which remains same and continues -- she is another unfortunate PRINCESS / LAKSHMI deprived of her parents and charming childhood & ecstasy.

No news on whereabouts of her mother. She must be feeling blameworthy being women herself but perhaps extinguished a much awaited horrifying life in the corridor of her domicile, for giving a birth to a girl child.

I really feel unwholesome to find the reasons of such fateful events and imbibe to write in my Blog.

But its certain, those categories of man slaughter are suffering from a MALIGNANT disease – “Burden of Girl Child”. They think unworthy in upbringing girl child who will go away one day after marriage. They think of hefty sum towards dowry during marriage, their generation would not progress if boy child is not born etc etc.

There are many articles and Blog available in sites which can be searched in Google to know the reason, number of girl child missing and arguments against such reports.

I am grief-stricken to make a straightforward attempt to write another paragraph of “Allow me to live with you all!.

It’s very unfortunate to think -- our nations feel so pride on the developments it has made over the years, since independence – growth in economy, Tech advancement, modernization, improved infrastructure, diversification and liberalization in various fields – but authority really fell short in their attempts to stamp out these unfortunate occurrences and eradicate “Fear of having girl child” from the mindset of such people.

Instead of relying upon the sleeping government we the public, NGOs should give a continuous efforts to try and educate, assure, convince such sick people -- Girl child are no longer burden. Given them to exercise their right in their chosen areas they are equally capable of doing wonders. Even far ahead of boys. There are many living examples in many fields where females have extraordinary achievements and became pride of their parents and country.

Even if extraordinary females are not taken as inspiring examples, there are many living examples in many household where ordinary girls are going great guns and also defend their families.

Spread the above message across length and breathe of the country. Little attempt from our end may help exterminate such events completely.

Hi Arijit,
I am touched. I am very much impressed that the article is from you...(a male). Till recently it was always a female crying, worrying and fighting for the rights of a girl child. Thanx for the warm support from you. We need more people like you to come forward in favor of girl child.
