Beti bachao beti padhao movement

re you aware the demography and the sex ratio of India and its states. It is shocking that some of our states like Haryana, Punjab, Delhi, UP, Bihar, Rajasthan and many more having around 800-850 females/1000 male. Let's see why?

Why in India the sex ratio is so bad and the number of females is decreasing day by day? In many states, there are only 800-850 females/1000 male because everyone in India wants mother, sister, wife but no one wants daughter because daughters are the liabilities. No one wants to take this liability happily because our social and political system does not encourage the birth and the upbringing of girl child.

We have to find the reasons for the killing of female babies in the womb ,dowry deaths, rape and murder.These three acts are eliminating the girls and women from this world. How we can address these social issues needs long discussions, deliberations and prompt actions. I suggest some points below which may be helpful to save the fetus, girls and women in our country.

  • The biggest reason is poverty. The Government should launch few scheme such as kanyadhan scheme. The aim of this scheme is to help the parents/bride at the time of marriage of the girl by some amount say fifty thousand/one lac, so that some essential clothing and jewelry can be purchased at the time of marriage. Vidhyadhan scheme to support girl child education at various levels .

  • Implement dowry prohibition act 1961 properly.once there will be no dowry burden, parents will not hesitate to give birth to girl child.

  • Make the school education/professional free for girls. It will reduce the financial burden, parents will not hesitate to give birth to girl child.

  • Sex diagnostic technique should be ban and the defaulters'degree should be punished. Even the parents should be given heavy fine and jails.

  • Inter-caste marriage should be encouraged.

  • No Delivery charges for girl child birth.

  • Intensive research should be done to find out the causes of rape, rape and murder of girls and women. The causes should be addressed. Some causes for rape are dirty media, films, adult films, TV serials, adult sites, internet. Strict laws and censorship should play a big role to reform the people.

  • Parents and the schools are required to teach moral values to children. Children should be developed morally and spiritually. Aim of education system should be to all round development of children. Moral education should be the part of school curriculum.

  • There should be fast track courts to sentence the rapist and rapist cum murderers. There should be no appealing provision in such cases. The decision of the lower court should be binding. We have to create the fear into the mind of rapist.

  • We have to save the women and girls from human trafficking and prostitution gangs.


All the above measures, coupled with some more measures, will change the mind of the parents and the society. The society will become more friendly with girls and women. It is everyone's responsibility to save the girls and women to save this planet. If the existence of girls and women is in danger then our existence is also in danger too. So please come together to save the girls and women. Let them flourish in this world.
