பெண் / பெண் குழந்தைகளின் நிலை

இந்தியாவின் மிக வளமான மாநிலங்களில் ஒன்று பஞ்சாப். பெண் சிசுக் கொலைகள் மிக அதிகமாக நடக்கும் மாநிலமாக அது தெரிகிறது. மிகக் குறைவாக 1000 ஆண்களுக்கு 700 பெண்கள் மட்டுமே இருக்கும் மாநிலம். வேலைகள் இருப்பதால், அப்படியே ஆங்கிலத்தில் பதிகிறேன். ஆழமாக யாராவது இதைப் பற்றி எழுதலாம்.

Kulwinder Kaur Housewife:
"I have two daughters and my mother-in-law is threatening to get another wife for her son if I don’t have a boy.
I got an abortion done last year when the scan showed it was a female foetus. This time I have been lucky."

Simran College Lecturer:
I have one girl and cannot afford to have another daughter. It’s so difficult to marry them off as boys demand hefty dowries. I have undergone five abortions at a private nursing home as all of them were female foetuses. I may not be able to conceive again."

Kashmiri Devi Housewife:
"I’ve two daughters, after which I had four abortions because the foetuses were female. Now, I want to have a son of my own so that he can take care of us in our old age."

Satinder Kaur Wife of a landed farmer:
"I have one daughter, and I know that if I don’t have a son soon my status in the family will come down.
