Emax raised voice for saving the girl child
Kulbir Kalsi,, INVC,, Panchkula,, In a bid to raise public awareness on the deep bias against female children in region, Emax Group of Institutions organized a week long awareness campaign which concluded from 21st January to 25th January, 2013. To involve more public in this campaign a huge flex was mobilized on a van in nearby villages. The van was carrying posters and slogans. More than 5000 students, faculty members and villagers contributed by writing slogans on the huge flex. Raising a new slogan “my daughter-nation’s pride”, like Beti Desk ke Aan, Baan or Shan hi, Beti nahi tho kal nahi, Beti sabse bada dhan hai, Without girls, there is no future of world, Beti Bachao Bhavishya Bachao, Bhuran Hatya Pap hai, Sir par devi ka Sharap hai, Beti ko marwavoge tho bhoo khan se lavoge, Lets put India first girl is must, Save girl save humanity etc on Save Girl Child created by students of various schools and villages. Various plays and acts were conducted to spread awareness. The van traveled across nearby villages and various schools like Govt. Sr. Sec. School, Bahauli, Kalpi, Bhardikala, Arya Sr. Secondary School, Mulana, E-Max International School, Gola, etc. of the region. The van was flagged off by writing the first message on the huge flex by Tajinder Pal Kaur, Principal of E-Max International School. In this campaign Sai Arts was the Support partner and Sonia Narang & Nidhi Gupta were the Anker. Chairman of the College Om Prakash Aggarwal said that families of limited economic mean see daughters as a financial liability because of a religious tenet that requires the bride's parents to provide a substantial dowry to the groom's parents. Many couples choose abortion when they learn their unborn child is female. Gender bias also drives child marriage, child labor and child trafficking. India has a skewed sex ratio, with fewer than 925 women for every 1,000 men, because of the gender bias. While speaking on this, Vice Chairman said that the idea behind roping in young students is to include this upcoming generation of people in save the girl child campaign. He called upon women to rise against the social evil and protect the girl child by not killing her in the womb. He said, "The world is incomplete without women but instances of killing girls in the womb are rising manifold and women need to come forward to stop the killing of girls to ensure balance in society.''
