Let her live---

A blooming bud, She would spread fragrance. Daughters, like true gems, Will make you proud. Doctor tells you, Girl in the womb Birth her with all Love. For: Shanzi contest Sponsor: Joann Grisetti. (This poem is written against an extremely inhuman practice called female foeticide, rampant among people who desire to have a male child at any cost. Such an impact this is having in the society that the population of females is decreasing at an alarming rate leading to dangerous gender imbalance. Lot of awareness efforts are carried out by the print and electronic media in India to curb this evil. The government has banned pre natal gender determination for the same purpose.) Dedicated to precious daughters who never were born!

    Good for you speaking out against this horrific practice. China is also diminishing their number of females. it will be odd when they want to marry and reproduce and find no women to do it with! I really like your poem

    I agree with Madhu (yes she is madhu) below that daughters are amazing.This practice is growing I think. the male female ratio of many states indicate that.Very good verse.Best wishes.

    This is a tragic practice ,we should be happy with a healthy baby not the sex of the child. Also without the daughters there will be no future sons.Very well said Yesha . Hugs Anne
