Tiny Insight

A tiny little flower She bloomed in my garden Was kissed by frosty wind She whispered tiny meek talks Wandering wind failed to understand her will Glimpses of giant humans she caught  She chuckled, mused, They fail to laugh or smile with her They fail to rejoice simple joys of life Greedy bewailing is the mania of man?

Girl Child's Agony

"May you be the mother of a son"- is a common blessing for a married woman in India. Is this a step motherly attitude towards daughters? A girl child in India leads a neglected multi-cursed multi –abused life? She is toned to accept a second class status in the traditional male dominated socio-economic set up. AtharvaVeda aptly sums up this fact with the verse "Grant me a son and a girl elsewhere"-I remember reading this somewhere.

Today's educated class longing for a girl child after birth of a son is no new. Vice-Versa also applies. The interest is positive. Successful women aren't unnoticed. The concern of mine here only is a girl child's manifold problems with religious preaching, social environment, and economic compulsions in many parts of rural as well as urban areas which are still "unc…
