A girl child in India is religiously given the place of a goddess. Why then has it become essential to launch a social or political drive against female Foeticide? Why is the gap in the men-women ratio widening year after year? Obviously, conservative tradition, modern machines for diagnosis, government inactions, women’s dependence, educational backwardness, etc. Have aggravated this problem.
Govt. Should enact stringent laws and implement them effectively. There must be a complete ban on the detection of the sex of the foetus. The state should impart free education to girls up to college. Social awakening and political drive should be launched against it. In these ways, we can maintain the balance otherwise the problem will become uncontrollable.
