Our nation is popular as a land of religious diversity, peace, and love. A girl in this country is regarded as a goddess. However, Sons and daughters are still a victim of discrimination even today. When they are blessed with a son, these people are happy and celebrate, but when they are blessed with a daughter, the entire house is silent or filled with sorrow. However, to eliminate such a mindset, Dr. Ganesh Rakh from Pune started “Beti Bachao Janandolan.” The birth of a girl child is celebrated at this hospital in Pune.

In an interview with PTI, Dr. Rakh claimed that the little project he launched in 2012 at his hospital has since extended to several states and some African nations. He had several experiences during the hospital’s early years where there was extreme gender discrimination. Moreover, if a girl is born, family members sometimes hesitate to see her. He was inspired by that image to take action to save the girl child and raise awareness of gender equality. According to a government survey, more than six crore incidents of female foeticide occurred in the past ten years.
The doctor stated that this is a form of “genocide.” People’s preference for a son is the cause of female foeticide. Additionally, according to a report, there is a striking decrease in incidents of female infanticide. Additionally, they are engaging with several states around the nation and doing programs to promote gender sensitization. Waseem Pathan welcomed a girl and a boy as twins last month and expressed his gratitude for the hospital staff’s kind greeting.
They have also had a lot of assistance from the general public, medical professionals, and social services organizations. To date, they have the assistance of more than 4 lakh doctors, 13000 social groups, and 25 lakh volunteers.
