hallo guys a few days before i was watching german TV channel ,whole the day they showd different aspects of asia .But the most appealing part of their shows was ,the status of women in today s so called advanced asia . though girls r very progressive these days but stillin most of the areas girls are still felt as they are burden .the people with less education ,try to know during the preganancy ,whether they r gonna have a girl child or boy child .in most of the cases ,if child is a girl ,they abort .Parents are still in favour of having a boy child ,though the girls have been selected IAS ,PCS n some Boys take drugs n neglect their parents ...i am unable to understand all this ....Can anyone give some idea why it is so ?
