Here Is News
This is for everyone who is sensitive
Here is news, look very attentively, be alert
As things are getting worse and aggravating in each passing day
Needs your intervention and quick resolution
The news published in a section of press in the caption
‘Another girl child found abandoned in Cuttack'
Reads as follows; ‘Girls lose out in gender race,
Five infant girls were found abandoned
In the twin cities in the past two weeks
Reflecting the peoples preference for a male child
Taking the total tally to five during last three days
All are baby girls, no male child, not even one, why?
Only girl child, this is gender bias or what? '
In twenty first century people
Claim them highly civilised and advanced, as such
There is no difference exist between the girls and boys,
Males and females, all are equal
And if given adequate opportunity girls
Will flourish and excel to become someone.
When science successfully manufactures synthetic cells
Invent capsules and on the verge of preparing human clones
To enable human beings live eternally
And tries untiringly to further the Inventions
To make it happens that, nobody will die
Nobody becomes old, life is eternal
And youth is eternally rejoiced by everyone
How one could become so cruel and inhuman to neo natal baby girls?
