India has 21 Million unwanted girls and 63 Million missing women!

Our nation is home to the population over 1.3 billion. The population is growing and will keep growing. Though the government has been promoting ‘two-child’ policy, it’s implementation, especially in rural areas is a herculean task. Given the meta-preference of a son in the Indian community, couples kept having children until they had a son. The amounted to 21 million unwanted girls in our nation.

Though the lives of the women ‘born’ are improving, many in the society still don’t want them. There is a wide gap in the sex ratios between men and women in the villages and rural areas of India.

Additionally, sex-selective abortions led to 63 million missing women in India. Many couples who preferred a boy over a girl, went ahead with sex-selective abortions, which is illegal in India. Doctors and medical staff assist the couples who don’t want a girl child. This practice is rampant in interior and rural parts of the nation.

The revelations came as a part of the Economic Survey released by the Chief Economic Advisor Arvind Subramanian. Besides these disturbing facts, there has been a sense of positivity too. The survey also pointed out towards the decline in the experience of sexual and physical violence by women.
