“GOD COULD NOT BE EVERYWHERE, SO, HE CREATEDMOTHERS”A MOTHER IS A HIGHLY ADORABLE FORM OF GIRL CHILD.
“Save the Girl Child”
It is said that god created mothers because he could not be present everywhere. It is unbelieveable to realize that a god’s representative is countinuously killing someone beautiful even before she can come out and see the beauty of nature. Let us consider some facts –
In India , she is the goddesses to be revered , in the form of Laxmi ( Goddess of wealth ) , Saraswati ( Goddess of knowledge ) and Sita ( ideal consort of Lord Sri Ram ) and even in the form of Durga ( Killer of evil ) but does that happpen in real life ? The picture in real life is quite different.
India has examples of woman who have risen from ashes like phoenix and done the country proud. There are numerous examples to mention, The country had an able prime minister in Indira Gandhi and now H.E. Smt. Pratibha Devisingh Patil , the first female president of India.
India ‘s first woman IPS officer Kiran Bedi, who had braught great laurels to her profession in the country, Kalpana Chawla , the first female astronaut from India.
The list is endless.
Then Why the girl child is denied the basic human right of taking birth through female infacticide and female foeticide?
Jawaharal Nehru , the first Prime minister of India has said – “ You can tell the condition of a nation by looking at the status of its woman”.
As regards status of girl child – “It is believed that every year 12 million girls are born in the country but unfortunately only 1/3 of those survive. Some are killed in the womb , some at the time of the birth, some die due to ill health and some due to poor nutritional status. Only a few number of girls are able to survive till their 15th birthday”.
The nation of mothers still follows a culture where people idolizes son and mourns daughters. UN figures out that about 750,000 girls are aborted every year in India. Abortion rates are increasing in almost 80% of the India states, mainly Punjab and Haryana. These two states have the highest number of abortions every year.
If the practice continues, then no longer a day will come when Mother India will have no mothers, potentially, no life.
We all are proud citizens of India. The need of hour is to realize our responsibilities and give a halt to this evil crime. What can we do to curb the brutal and undesirable practice of mass killing girls? A determined drive can initiate a spark to light the lamp and show the world that we all are part of the great Mother India..
