Any Comments?

Apropos to Mr.Narayanan's post on female infanticide,I took this picture during my visit to India. Despite wide awareness programs,sporadic incidents are still being reported ..

When even educated people still get refrained when hearing that the faetus is a female one, we cant help this ...

atleast we should be happy that, our government doesnt brings politics in this, but tries to create awareness..

@Everyone..

Dowry..The reason said suits to both poor and elite class..

The younger generation can make a difference to this age old custom..

I hope so !!

I am happy about the efforts...I hope implementation is successful like several other well intended schemes.!

I read even last week and on June-15th in the HINDU about this issue.

Sad...! We say 'Bharat Maata ki Jaai'....and yet.!
We say ' Thamizh thaai Vazhthu' and yet.!!

We have so many women Gods..and yet.!

One thing which I liked - The cradle scheme of TN's Jayalalitha.
