The world needs strong women. Women who will lift and build others, who will love and be loved. Women who live bravely, both tender and fierce. Women of indomitable will.” -Amy Tenny

The object behind celebrating the National Girl Child Day is to provide support and opportunities to the girls of India. As we know that in India, gender inequality is one of the major issues that is needed to be focused on and it exists in several areas including legal rights, education, medical care, marriage, etc. Female foeticide is another major issue that further affect the demographic problems in India.

Your parents plays a major role in giving birth to you,I feel luckiest that being a single child of my parents,they never did any discrimination and always wanted to have a girl child and never let me feel like that, Im a girl and have to stay in my limits.They make me independent provide every single things which I want,They trust me and whosoever Im today coz of their freedom and trust.They always guided me to be “Independent” one in life.I thank to them fr giving me life and make me capable that today im sharing sm part of my life with uh all.

A girl and boy both should have equal freedom and treated equally with the same respect as both are important in society.Both are incomplete with each other and plays a major role in socie

No doubt, the step of the Government of India to celebrate the National Girl Child Day is an improvement mission for the young girls and also promotion of the significance of girls as a child.

National Girl Child Day was first initiated in 2008 by the Ministry of Women and Child Development. The main objective behind is to highlight the inequalities faced by girls, to promote awareness including the rights of a girl child, the importance of education, health, and nutrition. Nowadays also gender discrimination is a major problem that girls or women face throughout their life.

कलियों को खिल जाने दो,
मीठी ख़ुशबू फ़ैलाने दो
बंद करो उनकी हत्या,
अब जीवन ज्योत जलाने दो!!

कलियाँ जो तोड़ी तुमने,
तो फूल कहाँ से लाओगे ?
बेटी की हत्या करके तुम,
बहु कहाँ से लाओगे ?

माँ धरती पर आने दो,
उनको भी लहलाने दो
बंद करो उनकी हत्या,
अब जीवन ज्योत जलाने दो!!

माँ दुर्गा की पूजा करके,
भक्त बड़े कहलाते हो
कहाँ गयी वह भक्ति,
जो बेटी को मार गिराते हो.

लक्ष्मी को जीवन पाने दो,
घर आँगन दमकाने दो
बंद करो उनकी हत्या
अब जीवन ज्योत जलाने दो..
