Yes, having a girl child can bring much joy than you may have first thought. Perhaps, women, often viewed as less incompetent than men, are breaking through barriers today by being a CBSE topper to flying fighter jets, from winning the Miss World title to capturing the industries . The National Girl Child Day in India, which is celebrated every year on January 24, highlights the inequalities faced by girls. The event aims to increase awareness on a range of topics, including rights of a girl child, importance of education, health, and nutrition.
