Our society tells you being a GIRL is tough in India. But what it forgets to tell that being a SECOND GIRL is tougher.
If you don’t agree with us, then how does one explain to this 2-month-old daughter why she was killed and why her own parents took away her right to live.
When Prakash Padave and Jayashree Padave had another baby girl, the couple from Maharashtra’s Kolhapur district did something no sane parent will ever think of.
They killed their 2-month-old daughter by feeding her poison.
The reason? They did not want another girl child.
When the couple took the two-month-old to a private hospital, the girl died before the treatment started. But after realizing it wasn’t normal, the hospital refused to hand over the girl’s body to the parents before the postmortem.
And later, in the medical report, it was revealed that the girl died due to unnatural causes.
On the basis of suspicion when the police questioned the parents – the couple confessed to mixing poison in the food to kill the girl as they didn’t want another girl in the family.
The couple was arrested and have been sent to the police custody.

It is heart-breaking to know that during an era when Indian Betis are making us proud at an international level, Betis back home are still fighting for their right to live.
During the morning tea break, when we mentioned this story to our office boy, father of two bright daughters, he murmured his reaction in a saddened voice:
Didi, Kassh Logon Ko Samajh Aata –
Betiyan Sab Ke Mukaddar Mein, Kahan Hoti Hain,
Jis Ghar Pe Eeshwar Meherban Ho, Beti Wahin Hoti Hai!
We wonder if our office boy could understand the value of daughters, then why so many educated morons can’t.
As a part of I FOR HER, we are fighting for our right to equality.
We are fighting for each and every daughter who was wished she wasn’t born.
We are fighting for each and every wife who was cursed and beaten up because she demanded her right.
We are fighting for each and every mother who was cursed because she stood for her daughters and her parents.
And we are not fighting alone. We have many men and women standing with us sharing stories to ensure women live the life they deserve – socially, personally, professionally and emotionally.
