National consultation on save girl child 20 - 21st march 2010

venue - village Malwa Ambala (Harayana)

Dear all , As we are all aware that the decline of the girl child in India is a problem of deep-rooted societal discrimination against women and girls; one that has found foothold in the proliferation of cheap and readily accessible sex determination technologies, such as sonograms and ultrasounds. Through foeticide, infanticide and the intentional neglect of girls and young women, the women of India are fast disappearing. Also, decades-old government population programmes intended to encourage family planning and the “two-child norm”, have correlatively encouraged sex selective elimination (SSE), eroding the value of the girl child, and stripping women of their reproductive decision- making power. In some of the worst affected areas, such as the states of Punjab and Haryana, the scarcity of women is so acute that women and girls from impoverished outlying states are trafficked in the purpose of marriage.
After Punjab , Harayana this problem has become a big social evil even in states of Himachal pradesh , Delhi , Rajasthan ,Maharashtra , Gujarat , Tamil nadu , Uttar pradesh , Madhya pradesh . Center for advoacy and research which is woking on PNDT act for many years , believes that law is complete in itself , its just that the implementation of it is a big failure , both government ad public are are reason for it . Illetracy , desire of male child , social norms and values have also added for the failure . As we all know that Asha Parivar harayana is working on this problem for quite along time in the states of harayana by spreading awareness and uniting people . since the magnitude of problem is not only restricted to Harayana and Punjab but has also spread to Himanchal pradesh , Delhi , Rajasthan , Gujarat , Maharashtra , Uttar pradesh , Tamil nadu , Jammu kashmir , hence we have decided that our fellowmen who are working in various state should also come together and discuss to solve the problem . It is our humble request to come together and stand against this inhuman practise of taking away lives , of thousands of girl child even before they come into this world . It is a matter of great shame for all of us when India is advancing and moving ahead in every sphere of life , but the bias against girl child is still prevailing in the country which is killing them every day.

Virtous Soldier of Beti Bachao Abhiyaan

Gurmukh singh is one of the main sipahi of Harayana Beti bachao Abhiyaan . I first met him approxiamtely 7 to 8 years back when i went to Ambala for training purpose on cause of Rehabilitation of rural youths .There was aprogramme being held for training of youth in Ambala . I was impressed by his loyalty and dedication towards work and his active participation for the cause . Immediately after training Gurmukh singh joined NAPM and Asha Parivar . Then arise the question of his livelihood which is very important question because he was not a paid volunteer .In nearly 20 villages we have seen that there is no arrangement for Basic computer education especially among girls , which is very popular among youths . Then we decided to open a institiute in village Durana in which 6 students were started to train on 3 computers .It was 4 years back when Asha Parivar and NAPM formaly started Beti Bachao Abhiyaan in Harayana . That time it was decided that there should be more emphasis on training of girls , which is not a small thing in rural village of Harayana .After immense efforts , today institute has 50 % girls .Now in the total 60 students 30 are girls .Today after so many years in this rural area , we can see girls moving ahead in every sphere .It is a model for all the girls .Gurmukh singh is very active in Beti Bachao Abhiyaan ands he is engaged in various Padyatra ,and campaign for for the cause of girls and he is a source of inspiration for other youth to join the abhiyaan . He is truly a virtous soldier of Abhiyaan .

Good news for Delhi

It will be quite early to come to a conclusion that there has been decrease in incidents of female infanticide in Delhi and a problem of 50 years will be solved in a year . A trend of 50 years does not 50 in year .It is a matter of pride not for the delhi but for entire nation that in year 2008 there were 1004 female child birth against 1000 males which is indeed far more than 952/1000 ratio prescribed by WHO for female to male child . In the year 2007 there were birth of 848 female child to 1000 male child , on contrary to it there are 19,000 more female births in 2008 . Female births increased from 148,000 to 167,000 in the year 2007 to 2008 .This sudden change in the trend is a matter of discussion in all social activists arena .On one side where delhi government is holding LADLI SCHEME the reason for its sucess , under the scheme every girl child is entitled to Rs 6000/5000 at time of birth depending on whether the baby was delivered in a govt hospital or elsewhere . Then onwards govt deposit Rs 5000 each at the time of admission to classes 1st , 6th ,9th ,10th and 12th .The money is kept as as long term deposit in the name of the child who can encash it when she turns 18. On the other hand social activist are giving other reason for the above change in trend . The main reason in the change is attitude of society towards female .In all the spheres of society women are not only on par with men but but are have also surpass the men in various fields .The popular convention of support of son to old parents have also been proven wrong , in many places infact daughter of today are agreat support to their parents .I knew many parents where daughter are taking care of their old parents who have been neglected by their own son .It appears now that in every sphere , politics , business fashion women are doing their job with more responsibilty and honesty .I think that faith of people on their sons have been given up . This is the reason that people of Delhi have decided that discrimination between son and daughter is an old convention for whatever reason it might be . It is a matter of pride to Delhi and whole nation that there are birth of 19,000 more females than males in year 2008 .

Beti Bachao Karwan

Beti Bachao Karwan

From7th march to 23 rd march 2009
Kurukshetra Ambala

It is really outrageous and a matter of national shame that when India is talking about knowledge society and being a regional superpower that the prosperous areas of the country are witnessing the worst form of medieval barbarism where a female fetus is killed in the womb. When the country is seriously discussing social justice which means the welfare and empowerment of women , dalits adivasis and marginal communities it is high time all of us seriously sit-up and take stock of the fast declining sex ratio in the country . It is ironical that prosperous Haryana have the lowest sex ratio in the country after Punjab. There are various laws pertaining to prohibitance of female foeticide , but none of them are effective to curb the problem effectively .

In state of Harayana it pose a serious threat to the social system where legal system alone fails to control the magnitude of problem . We need to discuss and change the thinking of society in context to , urge for male child ,Dowry system, economic restraints and various taboos toward female child . In view of above problems a " JATTHA" of youth will commence on 7TH MARCH ( evening before WOMENS DAY ) from KURUKSHETRA , which will go around 16 districts of Harayana , to end on 23TH MARCH (AMBALA) Distt . During the visit youth's will hold public meetings , school visits , "nukkad natak" , signature campaign ( 11,000 signatures in support of beti bachao ) , formation of' "Beti bachao Panchayat ".We all sincerely look forward for your active participation for noble and great cause .

Dear All ,
For quite a long time working in rural background of Harayana we have experienced that male members of family are primarily responsible for the drop out rates of girls in various schools .As far as Harayana is concerned brother play a major role rather than father in the continuation of education of girls . If brother is in support than girls can readily go to school .
