I'm sure no one is going to like this comment but........India doesn't need another baby born at all...........I know, I know thats not realistic and I have to agree.
But, is there anything at all being done to curb their population explosion? Do the Indian people understand what too many people can do to the land, see and air. Are the masses aware of how many people there are worldwide?
The demand of one sex over another is absurd. In China because of their attitude towards baby girls they now have a ratio of 34 men to every woman.............That is mind blowing.
Now the Chinese government is trying to undo that ratio with more girls being born which will add all the more to their 1.3 billion population......Is the same thing going to happen in India??????

The questions are endless as to why and the answers seemingly are totally lost................

I overheard
The comment-
One must
Plant life
In order to have it-
Plant trees...............................

When people ask an expectant parent, "What are you hoping for, a boy or a girl?" the only answer worth giving is, "Yes."

Let's fight for our girls!!!

Unfortunately, it's not just changing views that females are equal to males. In India it is customary for a dowary to be provided for each daughter. People are poor and sometimes cannot provide for themselves. It's not acceptable to us, but it is the reality they live. Feticide and infanticide happen everyday. Some children in India & in China are placed for adoption, but not all make it that far.

It is an outrage, but a lot of countries hold women of little value. But really they are doing a diservice to mother nature. IMbalance is what I mean, in India and in |China too. \Sad fact of life for women in India
