On 6th /may/2012 the super star Mr. Aamir Khan starts a bold movement named as “SATYAMEBA JAYATE” where the special focus is on female feticide and there was lots of discussion on that. On that TV program by the help of sting operation few sensitive cases of Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh where, how the doctors and nurses are illegally indulge in these, we saw and this also helps to increase the TRP of program. This kind of news is no way, new to the society. They also lunch FIR against those antisocial elements but, So far no action is taken on them. Even the rumor says the reporters are in trouble, means they are counter attacked by Indian Law. As per result the reporters are hovering around court till today. Again I found a new session is going to start shortly with some more cases and they also start investigation on those old cases. The honorable CM of Rajasthan Mr. Ashok Gaholat appreciate Mr. Khan and also helps to arrange a meeting with chief justice to put light on these serious issues .As outcome of this discussion the Govt. plan to establish few fast track courts for these cases ,where the victim can get fast justice.
In top of all, the time will say what will happen, how far these decisions will be fruitful for society.
But, what I want to discuss here is? Whatever reason the TV show “SATYAMEBA JAYATE” want to focus are those are responsible for these seen? In my opinion NO. If we want to cure a plant then we have to check the soil quality rather than cutting all branches and leaf. What I feel in this TV show there were no discussion on the root cause of this seen. The questions remain same How to solve? How to stop?
My question is? Why everybody in our society wants a baby boy? Even if we refer our ancient time i.e. kings age they did PUTRESTHI JANGYA for above. Who told only a boy can give GATI-MUKTI to his parents. Who told only a boy can give MUKHA-AGNI? The answers of these questions I won’t get from “SATYAMEBA JAYATE”. Whereas the fact is the TV show so sensible because of the real victims with real stories. For that Mr. Khan become talk of town.
What I believe the problem lies in our so far called tradition and custom. In our every VEDAS, GRANTH and UPANISAD like RAMAYAN, MAHABHARAT everywhere the importance is given to boys. From the very beginning this false concept we want one boy child in any how required.
In ATHARBA VEDA it was mention the wanting of boy instead of girl child. In RUG VEDA it was mentioned YAMI told her husband the new upcoming boy child will be greatest grandson. In MAHABHARAT also PANDU asked to KUNTI as he got curse that he can’t go for relation with his wife so for that reason he asked to go for relation with any other man who is of equal or more in standard. In Ramayana also the king Dasaratha did a PUTRESTHI JANGYA no need to elaborate it as we all know what happen next. From the Ramayana time also the Devi Sita recovered from soil. In that time the people throws the girl child as garbage in drains and wells. MANU also wrote for a boy child a husband can divorce has a wife and same time can have more than one wife.
My question is to born a boy child who is required? The answer is a girl only. From one male get more than one wife? That time even though the girl child in unwanted but at least they didn’t throw them like todays.No where we found any JANGYA for a girl child. From this all we can conclude the reason behind this female feticide is to get a MUKTI from boys.
In T.V serials we all everyday watching so many torture on women but, no one put light why it happen? Every year in India so many female feticide cases why? Why the people have such strong superstitions that boy can only help in various regard like the right owner of parental properties, can give light towards MUKTI and for next generation?
And, the most peculiar is the rate female feticide is more in township than village. Why, because people are more educated!! In INDIA every year so many cases on female feticide. People no way reluctant for abortion if it is girl child, so many girls we found in drainage. That is why in last population counting we found a long gap between male and female.
My demand is we have to come over this traditional superstation. We have to give same credential to boy and girl. And we have to stop imaginary peace “MOKSHA” for future and need to think for present.
