It's a girl

Gazing at something beyond, I felt that I heard It's a girl, Oh said the new father in me, I shall take care. A society, where a father fears to have a girl-child as ‘she’ demands much care, I care, said I. Even a mother fears to have a girl-child as a ‘she’ demands more protection, and a family fears to welcome a girl-child as ‘she’ demands most silence, Yet, I said I care to myself in silence with deliberation.
