How tragic! (And the child will live the rest of her life with this murder attempt as part of her history.)

James, culturally, female children are a burden in India, because their families must pay a dowry to the family of the man they marry. Often, adult women are killed in suspicious "kitchen fires" the man can marry again and collect ANOTHER dowry.

Hopefully she will find her way to people who will teach her the value of life.... HER life.

Female children are a deficit to many cultures. Only sons are worth anything.

For whatever reason should there be none? this person that intended to do what they did will pay deeply more than this child of God.
There is ruins upon Planet Earth and will be until we are all making the transition in crossing over to where we are to take our life into us.
We need to understand that all these acts of meaningfulness is the karmic act we come back to overcome in our next life..if we allow ourselves to not fully understand the meaning of ones demeanor we ourselves will be looking into ourselves also.

Funny how female deities are vehemently venerated in India but when they have a daughter they treat the female form as trash. I hope the bastards rot and are never able to have children. They don't deserve children.
