Beti Bachao, Beti Badhao, on National Girl Child Day

Being a girl is difficult more than one could ever understand. It’s a web that has trapped millions or dreams, smiles or even the birth. We are a progressive country yet the position of a girl child in our country is miserable. The hurdles she has to face right from the time she is in the womb of her mother is a fact that is known to the world.

Thus the government has taken certain stern steps to protect the rights of the girl child:

1. Termination of pregnancy without the consent of a pregnant woman is punishable by law

As by law Medical Termination Of Pregnancy Act (1971), it has been categorically specified that under no circumstances shall the termination of pregnancy may occur if the mother decides against it. The consent of father is no value here.

2. Prenatal diagnostic to determine the sex of the fetus is prohibited by law

The Pre-natal Diagnostic Techniques Act, any tests done to help would be parents of the child to detect the sex of the child is prohibited, and anyone, if found doing it, shall be punishable by law.

3. Every girl is entitled to free and compulsory education up to the age of 14

Under the acts of Right of Education and Compulsory Education Act, 2009, all children from the age group of 6 to 14 have the right to get elementary education in a neighborhood school. Also the child cannot be detained in the class till the elementary education is complete.

4. Prohibition of child marriage

The Prohibition Of Child Marriage Act, 2006, is a law to protect the rights of children and provide them safe by not entering the harshness of child marriage.

5. Girls trapped in brothels for prostitution are granted security by law

The Juvenile Justice Act provides special provisions for the protection, treatment, and rehabilitation of the girls who are under 18 years from the clutches of prostitution. They are provided protective houses and vocational training.

6. Buying and selling of minor girls for prostitution is punishable law

Section 372 and 372 of IPC has strict laws for the ones who are involved in the buying and selling of minor girls. The kidnapping of a girl child under 10 years of age is a non-bailable offense as per Section 363- A.

7. Financial security for all the girls born in India

Sukanya Samriddhi Yojna provides financial security to the girl children of the country. At the time of the birth of girl child, the account can be opened with a nominal amount in the savings account and this amount can be used for their education and marriage.

Beti Bachao Beti Padhao Yojana

The laws are there to protect but the lawbreakers are also there. Thus not by law but by value education and moral policing the rights of the girl child should be protected and we need to take an oath for this.

I have touched many lives in the last two years after I decided to become a freelance writer. Sharing a story is sharing a part of life and making your life bigger. Thus I became a writer and have become a better person as I also get parts of others lives and we all grow together as a community, through the enticing writings.

Happy Married Life

Marriage is a union of two souls and family who make sure to be there through the thick and thins of each other. There are so many responsibilities and commitments that are expected and fulfilling them with perfection and smile on the face is really difficult. However, as a newlywed, it was all due to my Mom and her valuable teachings that helped me sail through all and that too with utmost poise and grace.

Here are a few things that should in mind of al newlyweds..

1. Be proactive

Be proactive

via: Framepool

I was the lazy daisy before marriage but my mom, on the other hand, was always on her foot and was doing something or the other. No matter how much we used to persuade her to sit with us but she always would find some work that would need her attention.

This really helped me in managing my home in a much better way and responding to the needs of the family members or kids or husband in a much smoother way.

2. Be a good host

You should be able to entertain guests and call them over for some good food and deep conversation or just a casual potluck party. It helps you to grow as a better person and brings so much happiness and zeal at home. It’s a way of learning so many things and spending your time positively.

3. Compromising

I have always seen my mom compromising whenever there was the need. This is the best ingredient for a happy marries life. Put your partner before you do not sympathize rather empathize and also help your partner to do so and this will surely help your relationship to grow and evolve.

My mother taught me this and putting your partner before you show your love and this helps you in the long run.

4. Cooking

Well, one can always hire a cook or eat out or opt for the tiffin service but making good and healthy food for your family will definitely help you in relaxing and rejuvenating. The feeling of feeding your family with food that has been cooked with love is incomparable.

Rather my mother used to have the kids and also other members to help her cook an elaborate meal for the family so that we could simply bond over the food that we were cooking and also have fun. She passed on the secret family recipes and some cooking hacks that truly helps me to be a better cook and flaunt my talent.

5. No space for excuses

My mom was always there to help us or to listen to us in spite of being super busy and this truly helped us grow as a better person and much more confident as we had a sorted childhood and the same thing I do with my kids so that they are confident and also have my guidelines for various matter.

#FreedomToChoose

There were enough trolls directed towards AR Rahman and his daughter Khatija. The trolls accused the composer of forcing his daughter Khatija for wearing a niqab. Academy winner AR Rahman was caught up in the controversy along with his daughter Khatija Rahman. Recently she had delivered a very heart touching speech at the 10- year celebration of the Slumdog Millionaire Oscar win.

The event was held in Dharavi and his daughter was seen wearing a niqab and this led to the beginning of trolls. The trolls claimed that Rahman was being a hypocrite for ‘pressuring’ her kid to wear the niqab. A niqab is a veil worn by some Muslim women to cover their face and hair.

#FreedomToChoose

The composers with utmost dignity slammed the trolls with a fitting photo. The photo of his three kids, Khatija, Raheema, and AR Ameen are the best answer to slam the trolls. On his Instagram handle he shared the adorable pictures of his kids, the clicks were from a photo shoot of which they were apart.

A post shared by @arrahman on

Rahman and Khatija were all calm and composed when questioned about the niqab. He shared a few more pic of the ladies of his house with the caption #freedomtochoose.

Khatija also expressed her anger in the most beautiful way and commented “I’m a sane mature adult who knows to make my choices in life. Any human being has a choice to wear or do what he/she wants and that’s what I’ve been doing”.

Hence, kindly don’t make your own judgments without understanding the exact situation #freedomofchoice.

6 Ancient Mysteries About India That Till Date Goes Unexplained

6 Ancient Mysteries About India

History is full of mystery and no matter how much we progress in the field of science there are some mysteries that till date remain unsolved. India was and is perhaps the land of inventions that have started many revolutions in the world. And the fact that if these mysteries are solved or revealed they will for sure again changes the course of the world.

Here are few of those mysteries that will provoke your head with unlimited possibilities:

1. Dwarka, the city underwater

This is a mystery that often gets me into dreaming of life underwater. It is said that the entire city was under the sea. Some 250 firm proofs have been discovered of the city is underwater but the entire city has not been found. Archeologists have used carbon dating technique to find out how old the city is.

2. The Sixth Vault of Padmanabhaswamy Temple

From the orders of the Supreme Court ordered opening the five vaults of Padmanabhaswamy temple and it was astonishing as the vaults had treasures worth approximately $22,000,000,000.

The sixth vault contains much more treasures than the first 5 vaults combined, but it is believed that if the 6th vault is opened it will bring the apocalypse.

3. Living without food for the last 75 years

We need to eat food so that we can survive and get energy for the work but a monk named Prahlad Jani defies this rule of science and has not eaten anything from the last 75 years.

The monk claims that when he was 12 he was blessed by three girls who were like Goddesses and ever since then he never needed food.

4. Jatinga village – Suicide point for birds

This village called Jatinga is very strange and has a bizarre phenomenon. It is believed to be a suicide point for many birds. The scientists believe that because of the funnel effect.

Another claim is that people from the area hunt for the birds. Also, there exists one more logic given by the scientists that the area has more moisture in the air compared to other areas and this hinders the birds from flying so the death of the birds happens.

5. A secret society of Ashoka

A secret society of Ashoka

via: Quora

As per the tales, after seeing the damage caused by wars Ashoka decided to form a secret society of 9 men to establish peace. It is believed that the society still exists and encompasses a book that contains the process of alchemy that is the process of killing someone just by touching. This may seem to be unreal but then the stories to support it.

6. Son Bhandar Caves

These are two rock-cut caves located close together at the Southern foot of Vaibhar Hill. The tales suggest that the caves were to protect the treasure of the Maurya Dynasty. There is a script written on the wall of the caves. The script is a way to unlock the door but till date, no one could decode the script.
