Gender issues in India
Despite many advantages especially in terms economic growth, availability of everything that the consumers require, intermediate units, medical facilities in the private sector, India lags behind many gender issues.

DESPITE MANY advantages especially in terms economic growth, availability of everything that the consumers require, intermediate units, medical facilities in the private sector, India lags behind many gender issues. These are briefly mentioned below.
 
There are quite often child marriages, and people go against having a baby girl. This is quite often shown in TV serials, like Balika Vadhu, and Na Aana Iss Des Laado. These TV serials show what happens in reality. In many cases once people know that the new born would be a girl, they get it aborted, which is illegal. There are a few states in India where this happens quite often.  These states are basically Punjab, Haryana and Rajasthan. 

 
Girls perform three basic roles in their life. Firstly as daughters, then as wife, and finally as mother. In all these three roles, they perform the household work like cleaning and decorating the house, and most of their time is spent in the kitchen cooking food and what not for the family.

 
The funny part is that whatever they do is not accounted for in the estimation of national income because all the services they provide are unpaid. If the money value of these services is included in the national income estimation, India would surpass all the other countries of the world in terms of economic growth.
 
Let us hope that in time to come India will seriously look at these flaws, and it becomes a perfect economy in terms of social welfare.
