All awareness campaigns have seemed to pay off!

Statistics suggest that 60% of the children adopted in India in the last three years have been girls (6755 girls compared to 4463 boys). Yayy!

What do you think the reason could be? We could look at it positively – boys and girls are now being treated equally, and having a son is no longer a compulsion for most couples. On the other hand, the reason could also be that boys are not abandoned by parents, which is why more girl children are found at adoption centres.

Between April to June 2015, child adoption centres across India received 1,241 requests to adopt a girl against 718 for a boy.

It’s pleasantly surprising to note that the trend is also visible in patriarchal states such as Haryana. We are progressing, of course, it isn’t hidden from anyone. Girls have been performing better than boys at school for years.

It’s only with the continuation with this trend, and maybe at a quicker pace, will we be able to call ourselves a country of equals.
