|i'm completely agree with dr gopal singh that only women are not responsible for female feticide .
its our education system which is responsible for this , as you saw in the program also , the educated doctor , she belongs to educated family , had a great earning still she faced the same problem. if educated people are facing or doing this then i think we could or have to accept that the rural people (who are uneducated) they have right to do this . govt. needs to take some serious steps to toward this malfunctioning .
if this (female feticide) will be continue then that day is not to far when whole india will become the place of rajasthan where only men are present but not a singal female.
thumbs up for punjab govt. to make navashahar (place in punjab) 50:50 .
|"Our land is a strange country. We always prefer to speak one thing and do the other. We never feel ashamed of our double speak. We have developed immunity to hypocrisy".
"We wallow in deceit. All these female foeticide are not because of men; but it is because of women of this country".
Your article is very interesting. You cite excellent examples to make your point. I agree with the first part quoted from your article above. It can be said that by and large we Indians have developed immunity to hypocrisy. Rampant corruption in our Government and society is a manifestation of that value system.
However, I do not agree with the second part of the quote listed above from your article. As good as your examples are for women in this country, they do not represent the norm in our country. Spend some time in the villages and take a look at what is going on there. Majority of our population still lives in the villages. Women there are not empowered at all. They are mostly uneducated and treated as second class citizens. There is disproportionately high incident of suicide cases among the women mostly driven by their exploitation and lack of hope for any escape. Female feticide is actively pushed by men based upon distorted social value systems. Women are at times willing participants since they are mostly uneducated.
To push all (even the majority) of the blame for this national tragedy on women is a mistake
