Being Indian

I am very aware of where I am from and I am sure it informs almost everything I do. One of those things which always makes me upset is the way we treat women in India and more specifically, the abominable attitude towards the girl child.

I completely understand your anguish. If u remember , I shared the same concern once in Bhabna. I feel frustrated, helpless when i read such articles , which are very frequent in the newspapers in India.
North-West India is worsthit. The society is feudal .
What can be done? I often discuss this with my friend's mother who is the director of NGO. Social revolution is tough in any country in general and in India in Particular. We need a Vidyasagar, we need a Rammohan Roy. Pity isn't it , 21st century we are in and when we open the TV we see captions telling us, love your girl child, help her grow!!!!Mera Bharat Mahan!
