How could parents even think of doing this to their children!
Is the craze for a male child so great that it fuddles ones sense.We are already way behind in the male female ratio,its 1000: 932 and still decreasing. Parents in certain villages in Punjab and Haryana are seeking brides from other communities and other villages because there are just not enough girls for everyone.
Sad, that here in the cities we cry ourselves hoarse over crimes against women and these acts are quietly happening in another part of our country. Its a national shame! The funny thing is, its not poverty, as parents are willing to shell out £2000 for sex change operation of their one year old children.
The government needs to make laws stringent to not only bring the parents to book but also the doctors who perform this unethical surgery (genitoplasty). More than that, there needs to a paradigm shift in our attitude towards women. God helps us, ‘what we sow we reap’. Just imagine the social and psychological impact on these youngsters as they grow up.
Reminds me of the song -Where have all the young girls gone, long time passing, When will they ever learn? ,when will they ever learn??
