What is it like to be a girl in India?

It is said, "India is the most dangerous country for a girl child to survive."

Yes, a controversial United Nations finding based on the pathetic Indian social statistics, claimed this research (much of which dates back to the time of the colonial rule.)

Throughout the country, if you go up and down the caste ladder, the joy of parenthood differs by the gender of the child. The birth of a girl is equivalent to a tragedy or disappointment.

Not anymore!

While the system of dowry, child marriage is still prevalent in the rural regions, it has stopped being a burden in the urban areas. 

I get filled with rage when I think about all these experiences, and I read the newspaper, but there is a start to everything; a start to change.  When I go back to my childhood and remember my first day of school, all I remember are the beautiful memories. 

The topic is a bittersweet journey to talk about, but there are still positive aspects that I would love to bring light to.
