In modern era it does not matter whether we have a son or a daughterThere was a time in our society when the birth of a son was celebrated with much happiness and enthusiasm than that of a daughter and in some cases there was even an underlying sadness in the family if a daughter was born. At that time there was a clear cut distinction between the two as male was considered as the bread winner and female was a liability as we had to get her married and get her established in some other household. During that era the bride's father was always a worried man. Anyway with advent of education and coming out of the woman from the four walls there took a paradigm shift in these things and today a girl is considered equivalent to a boy as regards to earning potential or support a family. So there is not much distinction in the houses whether a boy is born or a girl is born. Still in some orthodox and backwards families that undercurrent is existing. What do you think about this?
