Narendra Modi, Prime Minister of India has given stress on the need of educating and protecting the girl child. What is it that has propelled him to take this initiative ( Beti Bachao - Beti Padhao ) when the country is heading towards being the superpower if not in the near future, in the long run.
Yeah this is the miserable condition of the daughters in some parts of the country where the girls are not treated equal to boys, not allowed to go to the schools beyond primary classes, deprived of all the facilities which their brothers enjoy with extreme liberty and in some cases the girls are not allowed to take birth and they get killed in the womb of their mothers.
As a result the girls are suffering a lot before or after their births. Sexual assaults, exploitation, physical assault, Dowry deaths etc have become the order of the day in the country. Can we claim to live in the civilized society when equal partner of ours in this life are suffering like animals and even worse? The answer is 'no'.
Improve the Condition of the Women in the country - This is the need of the hour
That's why the PM of the country has to take this initiative by launching this Drive called Beti Bachao - Beti Padhao. First of all this is the responsibility of every human to save girl children. It must be ensured that they don't get killed in the womb of their mothers.
After they are born, their quality education must be ensured. If they can stand on their feet, the country will automatically stand. Those who become the part of this great movement must be encouraged with rewards and those who don't mend their ways must be given exemplary punishment.
So there is the need of creating awareness among the people about the need of the daughters and their education. Schools and higher educational institutions can do a lot in this regard. So get ready to be the part of this noble and necessary move if we wish to save our home planet.
Some incidents in the recent past has caused much embarrassment to the humanity. In our National Capital girls aged 2 and 5 yrs are gang raped ( even my hands are quivering while writing these lines ) and political parties are involved in blame games. No body talks about the permanent solution of such problems.
बेटी बचाओ, बेटी पढ़ाओ , बेटी खिलाओ
But some good news reports come as a source of light in the darkness. Clearing of IAS Exam ( read the story of Ira Singhal from here ), flying Air Jets, topping Board Exams and other Competitive Exams such as PMET, Engineering etc, becoming Auto Drivers in some parts of even Haryana, notorious for female foeticide and exploitation of women, becoming heads of institutions and organizations has proved that women empowerment is not just a phrase, it is more than that now.
Now their success in Rio Olympic has added one more feather to their cap. PV Sandhu, Sakshi Malik, Dipa Karmakar, Deepa Malik have proved that they can do miracle in sports if given chance. When the whole country was looking for just a single medal in this Olympic Game, they revived the hope by winning medals. Sakshi Malik's mother has extended the title saying - बेटी बचाओ, बेटी पढ़ाओ , बेटी खिलाओ .
