Comes from a colleague of mine in office, an engineer by education and an IT personnel by profession. Age,22-23 years.
“I’m grateful to my father for letting me live. He always wanted a son. So he had my mother tested when she was pregnant. When he found out it was a girl, though others asked him to get it terminated, he allowed my mother to have me. I’m thankful to my father for giving me life”.
Tell me people, am I wrong in feeling completely offended by this sentiment?
I wonder why we take the effort to educated women from the poorer strata of society on women empowerment when its the educated, affluent women themselves who are yet to see the light of day!!
