Girls 'stand out', a report on increasing female infanticide and foeticide by a MassCoMedia student

Rahul Chaturvedi, Trainee Reporter, MassCoMedia

India has completed 63 year of independence but why newborn girls are not safe?
In India most of the children are abandoned by their parents and most of them are killed.It is shocking that killed ones are girls.

They are killed because they are girls?

Thousands of girls have been killed by their parents in India in the past 20 years.
A UNICEF report said 4000 fewer girls are born in the country every day than
global average would suggest ,largely because female fetuses are aborted after sex determination test but also through murder of new born.

Highlight of few cases: 

-On January 19,2011 a newborn girl was found floating in a sewage drain near Sarai Rohilla in North Delhi.

-Two couples who left their newborn daughters at the city Kalawati Sran and Bara Hindu Rao Hospital.

I have a question here that, Why men are seen as bread winners? and Why social prejudias deny women opportunities for education and jobs? Who has killed these girl childrens?there own parents?

The minute the child is born and she opens her mouth to cry because they put sand into her mouth and her nostrils so she chokes and dies.

According to the 2001census the national sex ratio was 933 girls to 1000 boys while in the worst affected northers state of punjab,it was 789 girls to 1000 boys.
