TNV: What are your views on ‘Save Girl Child’ campaign?
AK: Its a great initiative by rubaru group to educate ans bring awareness amongst then about girl child . its really bad to see still in many parts of our country girls still treated as secindary they are not given the status same a boy in family enjoy . girls are the impotant part of society and they should be given equal status and should get all the things wat a boy in family enjoy . in modern areas this problem has been overcome but in some backward areas still people feels giving birth to girl child is bad . various programmes have been made by the goverment like beti bachao beti padhao , save girl child , . in backward areas we should go and educate them about this . people there are not aware of this they still think giving birth to girl leads to dowry. but they should know girls are enjoying equal status in evry area . be it army , air , police , politics they are standing tall , we should demnstrate this with the exampls of some big names like geeta phogat , babita phogat , jwala gutta , pratibha patil , and lots of big names so they should start educate them .
