Save Girl Child

Discrimination against girls in India has been going on since ages now.  Even today, there are several sections of the Indian society where the girl child is treated as a burden. While several privileges are given to the boys; girls are often restricted to the confines of house and given very little or no opportunities to learn and grow in life. It is a matter of great shame to us & our society. As per the figures of 2011 census, there are just 918 girls in India for 1000 boys’ because of the narrow minded thinking of people. The existence of human life on the earth is impossible without the equal participation of both women and men. They are equally responsible for the survival of the human race on the earth.
