Essay on Baby Girl.

These days gender imbalance is becoming a grave problem especially in India. Girls are either aborted from mother’s womb or killed after birth. This gives rise to crimes like rape and killing. Write an essay emphasizing importance of women in the society.

~ ~ ~ ~ ~

In ancient time birth of a girl child was considered as auspicious. As per an Indian proverb, “A home without a daughter is like a body without soul”. The birth of a daughter in the house was compared with the advent of Goddess Laxmi, the Goddess of wealth and Goddess Saraswati, the Goddess of Knowledge and Wisdom. No ceremony was considered to be complete in absence of women. The belief was that “No home is complete without a woman.”

Indian is a “Male Dominated Society” hence women are the receiving end. They are always will treated and ill-treated at every step. As a matter of fact, a girl child is under constant, vigil initially by the parents, then her husband and finally her own children. She is never allowed to dwell and survive freely. Worst of all she is often killed before being born while in mother’s womb itself. This is foetus killing or infanticide. This is the gross downfall of humanity, morality and the values.

The situation has drastically worsened these days. Women suffer badly, infanticide have become widespread. Parents don’t send daughters for schooling thinking that the daughter is going to be a kitchen confined housewife. There was, hence, decline in female literacy and her position in the society. This practice is lasting till today and the killing of foetus after the sex determination is fearlessly continued.

The crime of female foetus aborting is widespread not only in rural areas but in urban areas too.  With the help of new techniques it has become possible to determine the sex of the unborn baby or the foetus, and if it is found to be a girl child than, this is followed by abortion. Clinics offering such service have come up all over the country. For the doctors with sex identification equipments the said illegal business is booming beyond imagination. Although there are severing laws against the misuse of parental diagnostic techniques, those are meant only for detecting abnormalities in the unborn infant and associated risks to the pregnant mother if any. The doctors, however, violate this law. Not a single case has been field so far under the law, which forbids such an unethical practice.

Dowry is another big evil in some northern states of India. Father of the girl has to give lot of cash and gold to the bridegroom. This may be given either during the wedding or after the marriage ceremony. In case the father of the bride fails to spare the said valuables on account of his poor economic health, the bride (the daughter) is severely tortured or she may even be torched to death.  Today, the said problem is quite widespread in the northern states of Bihar, Uttar Pradesh and Rajasthan.

Upon attaining puberty, a girl is considered to be a security risk, a likely source of trouble for the family’s honour and reputation. Then there are economic reasons for her killing. She is a liability for her parents from the cradle ceremony to the marriage. There has been not let up in the dowry system, which breaks the back of the parents. She is got rid of in order to save the family properly from partition. In some communities there is a dirty superstition that is a daughter is killed, the next child will be a son. In China also, the eldest male child inherits the property look upon the male child as their protector and supporter in old age. This gender-bias leads to the killing of girl child.

At least, I cannot imagine my existence in this world had there been no girl. I would not have come to this beautiful world and enjoyed my life had there been no girl. I am born because of a woman. I am married to a woman. The woman is my mother, my sister and my wife.

The human society is like a cart. The God has created man and woman as the two wheels of this society cart. Those two wheels are made for each other. For the human race to exist and survive, both of the wheels must be functional else the society collapses.

In nutshell all must be kind to women with high degree of love and respect to them. There is no life without a wife and there can’t be a wife in absence of girl. Considering all the facts above, save the girl child in the interest of humanity. Saving baby girls shall minimise crime and build a powerful nation.

What is your favourite way of getting around? Describe it and explain why it is your favourite means of transportation.

My favourite way of getting around is my motorbike. I can use my motorbike for going to school or college, attending office or business, shopping or socializing and numerous daily activities. The life has become very fast and time is extremely scarce. We have to cope with the work and the business for which a motorbike is a great help. Motorbike is compact and less expensive because it consumes less gasoline (Petrol). It emits less exhaust gas and heat as compared to three and four wheelers. This helps in conservation of resources and protects environment from pollution and global warming. Hence motorbike is my favourite means of transportation.
