Kalpana Chawla & Sunita Williams reached space, Saina Nehwal & Sania Mirza reached top ranking in their field, Deepika Padukone, Katrina Kaif, Aishwarya Rai’s film were block busters. And we are very proud of all these women achievers and others who have made us proud. But what’s strange in our society is that we can praise these women, but still don’t want a girl child, and even if we have a girl child, we won’t treat her equal to our boy. We would look up to what Aishwarya does or Kalpana Chawla did, but will never train our daughter to touch those heights, after all, what she is born for is cooking food, serving her husband and his family and not to forget, giving birth to a boy, argh! We have many girls in real life who have achieved so much and it is nothing less than what a boy has achieved and the other girls would certainly touch the sky, if the there parents and the society don’t come in between as a barrier. Why people are getting so ruthless? Why can’t we let our own daughter grow? Why is she treated less than a son? Why is she even compared to a son? How many times would our society need a proof, that women are strong and should be treated equally? There is nothing that a man can do and a woman cannot! Here in India, where people worship goddesses, they think that having a girl child is a burden. The only reason is that they will have spend money for her needs till she gets married and then she won’t even earn and pay back and then ofcourse, the dowry! And this problem is not only limited to the rural areas, even the educated people are doing the same. Grow up people! It’s high time that you treat the girl of 21st century any less and separate her from equal rights. ————–
