The Silenced Cries….

Radhika is a bright child. She is exceptionally good in studies. She not only topped all her classes, she has made it to AIIMS for pursuing her MBBS and dreams about becoming a good cardiologist to help poorer sections of the society. Sounds good?? There is only one catch : All this happened in what I like to call a “parallel universe”. She was killed in her mother’s womb because her family wanted a “bal gopal”.
What can you do now? Next time when you see an elder in your family or relative talking about only having a boy or discussing how a girl is a burden on the family, don’t change the topic or ignore him/her. Your silence did not help Radhika.
