When nothing else worked out, the cruel and pitiless mind of a ruthless person decided to strangle the pulse of an unborn life.
I made this picture a couple of days back and I thought this would be a good place to share it. According to the current census, male to female ratio is 1000 to 940 in India.
Most people assume that the gender ratio difference at birth in India is owning to sex-selected abortion. However, I have been arguing that that is not so.
While more and more Kashmiri women are receiving education and entering the labour force, gender gaps stubbornly persist, particularly with regards to birth rates.
If the trend of female infanticide stays like as is indicated in 2011 census, then Kashmiris have to tread into unknown territories to get their female counter parts

The latest post on gender bytes based on a recent incident in Mumbai where a mother who had twins, a boy and a girl, killed the girl by throwing her out of the hospital window.
