Meet Gynecologist Dr. Shipra Dhar from Varanasi who celebrates the Birth of Every Girl Child
Though we have come a long way from the times when the status of girl child in a family was highly compromised, gender inequality still continues to be a reality of real India, even today.
Go in the remotest parts of the country and you will still find young to-be parents not wanting a girl child. In modern India, you will easily find people trying to determine the gender if the unborn child, and even aborting her if she happens to be a girl.
While these hard facts are alarming and disappointing, hope has not died yet as we march ahead towards a future which is fairer for the girls. There are so many people, who not only believe in the power of equality and the importance of the girl child in the society but are also working to spread the message in the society, bringing in a positive change.
One such inspiring personality is Dr.Shipra Dhar.
Dr. Shipra Dhar is a practicing Gynecology from Varanasi, who has taken up outstanding initiatives for the girl children that she delivers. She not only delivers the girl child free of cost at her nursing home but also distributes sweets at the birth of each girl child. From several years of her experience, she feels that most families are not happy on the birth of a girl. She wants to change the mindset of the society, and help the parents realize that girls are as good as boys, and their birth needs to be celebrated.
For her remarkable efforts and unique initiatives, Dr. Shipra has even been appreciated by the Prime Minister recently.
We need more people like her to bring a larger transformation in the mindset of society. For Dr. Shipra, all we can say is more power to you!!
