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 .
