Daughters are better than sons, says the mom-in-law who celebrated the girl child birth.
Lucknow: In a state where female abortion is common in the rural areas, this mother-in-law deserves to be admired. Prema Devi, an ex- inspector from the health department of Uttar Pradesh, has gained a celebrity status in Hamirpur district after she gifted a Honda City car to her daughter-in-law when the latter gave birth to a girl child.
Prema Devi, who gifted a Honda City car to her daughter-in-law, states that daughters are better than sons. She also presents a small party with Khushboo, her daughter-in-law, to welcome the baby girl in the family.
“The practice of female infanticide in India will only come to end after daughters-in-laws are loved as daughters. They are someone else’s daughters as well. If daughters-in-law are treated the way daughters are treated, they bring joy to the home,” she expressed to reporters.
Khushbo, on the other hand, is delighted to have a mother-in-law like Prema Devi. She stated that in order to bring a change in society, women must first learn to love and respect each other that way her mother in law does. Even daughter-in-laws must love their mother-in-laws like their own mother, she added.
In the meantime, an 11-year-old girl was supposedly raped and murdered by the husband of her tuition teacher and afterward her body thrown in a pond, police stated.
The crime was committed yesterday in Purnagiri locality in the provinces of Kotwali police station here. The body of the victim was recovered on Sunday.
The girl, a class 6 student, had gone for tuition after her school but did not return to home provoke her family members to go to Kohena police station.
