Provide the best of education to all girl childrenThose who all for the development of women, should first concentrate on giving the best possible education to girl children. There is nothing wrong in training girl children for a skill oriented profession such as nursing. However, since there are too many nurses being turned out by thousands of colleges, the average salary has come down and the poor nurses do not even earn salaries that exceed three lakhs per annum.
There are other professions where they are exploited as well. However, the best insurance for a girl is to provide the best of skills in a good profession like media. For example, those who act in television serials now earn decent salaries and they also get changes to do other jobs like compering. A good education in economics would automatically mean that the person reaches the doctorate level and gets the degree as well with a sound knowledge of all research practices.
The sheer variety of courses available today should make every parent appreciate the need for imparting the best of education to the girl child. Marriage can wait. It is important to get the girl to become a professional in the first instance.
