For decades, Indian families have preferred boy babies over girls and there exists a deep-rooted discrimination against girl children. In ancient India, daughters were considered to be a burden due to the huge expenses incurred towards their marriage in the form of dowry. This led to a huge drop in the child sex ratio as recent as 2011 census, which had a CSR of 918 girls for every 1000 boys.
Strong rooted socio-economic beliefs, long accepted discrimination against the girl child, peer pressure from the society and irrational philosophies supporting a son are some reasons for this tragic decline in the child sex ratio over the years. The society has long been suffering from various irrational beliefs like dowry, lineage, property and inheritance rights only for sons and many other superstitions that have led to huge discrimination against the girl child.
Though times are changing, major initiatives are required in this area to prevent discrimination and violence against girl children and women. This led to the launch of the ‘Beti Bachao Beti Padhao’ programme in January 2015. Prime Minister Narendra Modi inaugurated this commendable scheme that encourages the celebration of girl child in every household.
The program addresses the problem of falling Child Sex Ratio (CSR) and is a national project jointly run by the Ministry of Women and Child Development, the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare and the Ministry of Human Resources Development. It initially concentrated on multi-sectoral activity in 100 districts around the country where CSR was poor. On 26th August 2016, Sakshi Malik, a bronze medalist at the 2016 Olympics, became the brand ambassador for this campaign.
The hashtag #SelfieWithDaughter became largely trending on social media in June 2015, when Sunil Jaglan, the Sarpanch of the Bibipur village of Jind in Haryana, took a selfie with his daughter Nandini and shared it on Facebook. The hashtag has earned worldwide popularity.
