Traditions and rituals outline the existence of the Indian girl child. Amidst uproars of gender equality and law enforcement, female infants are still found dumped in trash, by the dozens, while unborn fetuses continue to be sniffed in the womb. Wrought with discrimination and prejudiced by rituals, our society has dealt the girl child a rough hand, starting even before birth, till the dark of life. Drishti along with the Radio Nazariya team organised a campaign to save girl child . The Radio jingle is produced by the one of the community producer Chirag Chauhan at Ahmedabad .
The statement is open to debate, but Indian society at community and individual level is not very passionate about girls' education. We still share the mentality that girls are meant for household chores, and educating them would fetch us no benefit. Girls are still considered as a burden to families and it is foolish to spend money on educating them. Because of low literacy rate among women, India still witness large-number of child marriages every year.
This audio program is produced under the banner of Radio Nazariya (Drishti) by community producer chirag and Sagir . Both are the young leaders from marginalized community and passionate to build just and equal society .
