- In traditional societies like India ,when children are named,mostly they only take the father's family name.
- India still has one of the highest rates in the world of mother's dying during childbirth.
- India is in the unenviable position of 73rd out of 77 middle-income countries rated by the new 'Save the Children' report for the 'best place to be a mother'.
- It is a sham to celebrate mothers in a society that still despisess the birth of a girl child.Surprisingly one of the worst sex-ratio and highest female infanticide rates is of the south delhi district of delhi (the so -called liberal.educated modern and rich.)
