A Second Girl Child - How Dare She be Born...?

This man from Ramgarh, Odisha was wild,
When his wife delivered a second girl child!
He caused his wife grievous injury,
Slitting her throat for bringing misery
Of a second girl child, that had him riled!
Authorities in Ganjam District say,
Girl children sold or thrown away,
Female foetuses aborted,
Or infant girls deserted,
Routinely happen every other day!

Well, this is not just an Odisha Story
For such details inhuman and gory
Keep emerging from other parts of our land.
And now it seems only a rare Magic Wand
Can render such savage practices history!
