Gender Bias

A self proclaimed activist
And a strong proponent herself
Of gender equality
Only the other day
Was caught
In camera
Aborting a female foetus.

What are the compulsions
Of the woman involved
Well educated herself
Hailing from a family
Well to do
Leave aside many
Who willy-nilly do
And for the lady doctor
Is this only money
Or some other motivation too?

Like elephantine teeth
Some for the eats
And others for the displays
A majority of us
Don't walk our talk.

This gender bias
Explains to an extent
The adverse male female ratio
Dwindling populace of the latter.

If the human race
Continues to misuse
Medical science and techniques
For mere convenience and greed
We can be certain
The end of human race 
On this green planet
Is not very far.

Comment Jaipal ji....had you been born as a girl in a jat family you would have known the reason why even educated females do that.
I am not a supporter of female foeticide but in this patriarchal set up we are just earning slaves and any effort to be true to oneself means to be slained mentally or physically.
