Since my childhood, I was taught about female foeticide first in school and then in college. There were quite frequent programs arranged in college to make us aware about the severity of the problem. Even newspapers and news channels have always something to say about the topic.
Is it really a so big problem? Yes it is, as we all know. What can be the possible reasons? At the name of GOD, what we can see Parents only. Do they (Parents) not love girl child? Are they naturally biased for a boy child? It is very difficult to digest. Then why more than a few parents kill their girl child even before her birth.
The root reason lies in our marriage rules: By default woman is supposed to leave her home and parents after marriage. Of course when parents know that the child they will grow up, educate and make her stand, will not be with them in their old age, then why will they like to give her birth. So there is a forced bias for a boy child.
Now the question is what can be the solution? Our marriage rules may have equally probable chances for a boy and a girl to stay back with their parents after marriage. While searching for a spouse, we give some preferences like age, education, employment etc. Similarly this can be one point that whether the boy or the girl will shift OR both families may stay together. The point is there should not be any fixed rule imposed on one gender.
