“Beti Bachao Beti Padao”
“Beta beti ek samaan”
“If daughters are not born where will u get daughter in laws”
“If you kill a daughter you kill a mother , a sister, a daughter and many more relations too”
These are few slogans heard these days with awakening launch of nationwide campaign of “Save Girl Child” by our Hon’ble Prime Minister Shri Narender Modi ji. This has opened the eyes of society with the true facts of dropping ratio of boys versus girls i.e 10 : 7 which is an alarming signal for Indian social setup . Many celebrities and learned people have joined hands for it to make this campaign a success. Madhuri Dixit is the brand ambassdor for this project. Below is the story of my own childhood memories , which is itself an example of that girls are not curse and no less than boys.
Now being a IVF specialist , if I recall back at my own personal story and my childhood memories I feel on the top of the world to have been blessed with good parents . I have been brought up in a middle-class family setup, from a very small town of U.P , Khekra, but very lucky to have such a open minded and educated parents for whom we four sisters were not a burden.They made education our weapon and we all succeeded in our career. We were provided with all oppurtunities that are given to boys. I was always inclined to study in science stream but in our girls school there was no science , so I was admitted in boys school which was a revolutionary step itself in small town , khekra , and soon other girls of our town joined me in that school . I completed my higher secondary with a place in UP Board’s merit list than got into BHU for my MBBS and after that did all my higher studies further. My other sisters too are doing best in their career my parents have proven in Khekra that ,if we are dertermined no one can stop us to achieve the goal. Today my parents are very proud of their 4 daughters and say that they are the happiest persons in the world.My intention to convey that we should give equal oppurtunities to girl child and girls make parents much happier than any boy will do.
