Millennium India is as much known for Information technology, precision research and emerging global companies as it is known for malaises like child labour, infant mortality and dowry death. A recent study by UNICEF states that on an average 7,000 less baby girls are born in India everyday because of female foeticide. Ironically, female foeticide is not a stand alone phenomenon. It has a strong correlation with the traditional concept of dowry in India. Delhi Human Development Report 2006 prepared by UNDP says, “For a large proportion of Hindus, fear of dowry and even security of sons performing funeral rites leave the birth of a female child unwelcome.” And this permeates the barrier of all religions. The same report further stated, “Until recently, amniocentesis (procedure to determine the sex of the foetus) was openly propagated through demeaning advertisements that proclaimed, ‘Pay Rs 500 now or Rs 5 lakh later as dowry’.” The National Crime Record Bureau states that there is one dowry related death every 77 minutes that further vindicates the point why many parents prefer an abortion than to see their daughter burnt to death later. For all the noble intentions of the Indian government, unless drastic steps are taken to tackle the menace of dowry, female foeticide would continue, worshipping the female deities notwithstanding. Would we ever see and end to all these activities?
