ESSAY ON BETI BACHAO BETI PADHAO
Beti Bachao Beti Padhao scheme is a government scheme launched by the Prime Minister of India Narendra Modi in the month of January in 2015 at Panipat. This scheme was launched especially in Haryana as this state has lowest female sex ratio all over the country (877 of females to that of 1000 males).It has been effectively implemented in hundred districts across the country to improve the status of girls. 12 districts were chosen from the Haryana state itself because of having low child sex ratio.This programme was launched to make some positive changes in the Indian society in status of girl child. There are many restrictions for the girl child in the Indian society which hinders the proper growth and development of the girl child. This scheme is aimed at eradicating practices of female foeticide, girl child insecurity, sex discrimination and other deplorable acts against girl child.
The attention holder idea behind this scheme is to help in improving the awareness among common people and the efficiency of welfare services given to women. However the sex ratio 2011 shows an upward trend from the census 2001 data. Census 2001 revealed that there were 933 females to that of 1000 Males whereas it risen up to 943 females to that of 1000 males in 2011 Census, still some states are in desperate need to make a noticeable improvement in their calculated female sex ratio data. If nothing is applied positively on urgent basis to reduce such type of issues against girls, surely there would be a day when the results will be dreadful and uncontrollable creating a turmoil. Girls occupy almost half population of the world so they are half responsible for the existence of life on the earth.
The menial & widespread thinking of Indian society that girls are the property of someone else other than their parents needs to be changed strenuously.
There are some positive aspects that this scheme would be proved as a great start to remove social issues against girl child. We hope that there would be a day when no girl child would be killed, uneducated, insecure, raped because of socio-economic reasons. Beti Bachao Beti Padhao scheme is the way to achieve positive changes in the human negative mindset toward girls. This scheme may make a call to people to end the discrimination between sons and daughters and work as a key to end female foeticide. Empowering women brings all round progress especially in the family and society and thus help in the progression of the nation as well.
