We are lucky to live in a country that has more than 100 different languages, spoken in various states. It is not an easy task to have people from different religions, castes and cultures live peacefully. Believe it or not, to a very large extent, India and Indians are in a very good society when it comes to communal harmony and traditions. However, one thing that the countrymen lack is – pride.

The day a girl takes birth; her family starts thinking about her wedding and all expenses that shall come with it. It is an appalling thought because we live in a country where goddesses are considered to be the harbingers of good luck, love, and prosperity. Since the birth of a girl child, she is constantly given a reminder that she will go to her house one day. Why do we do that? Why is the house she is born and raised in, never completely hers? A girl is expected to study, know all household chores, take care of...Read More
