A pregnant woman who is undergoing a female foeticide
has her baby daughter in her dream saying….
“I grew up so big…from a single cell!
Why everyone is up to kill me? Is it just because I’ m a “female”?
Please let me live maa.”
“Parents are support-less, because of their irresponsible sons;
But hardworking daughters keep happy dads and mums;
“Money for raising me,money for marriage and money for education;
The only reason to kill me is, you won’t get any reciprocation?”
“What sin has your innocent daughter, done to be so cruelly punished?
i will satisfy all your hopes, you have since cherished”
Trust me maa..
“I would b a better child, than all the sons in the world;
The world will see your head raise with pride, and your face glitter!”
Please let me live maa….
