India ranks number 130 out of the 151 countries in the world, among the countries with the most gender inequality. It is a country where the birth of the female child is not really seen as a blessing. The Gender inequality Index which was compiled by the United Nations Index rated India the number 130.

I wonder when men will learn the meaning of the XY and XX chromosomes. The sex of a child depends on the man, not the woman. A man has the XY chromosome, while the woman has the XX. XX is the female chromosome, while the XY is the male chromosome. People should learn to accept a child despite their gender.
