National Girl Child Day: Celebrating The Prodigy Indian Girls

National Girl Child Day is celebrated today and was commemorated by the Women and Child Development Ministry in 2008. The celebration of this day also reflects the successful emergence of girls and young women as a distinct group in development policy, programming, campaigning and research. This day supports more opportunity for girls and increases awareness of gender inequality faced by girls in India. The National Girl Child Day is celebrated by organizing various events all across the Country to promote the position of girls in today’s society. The Government of India organizes campaigns to increase the consciousness of people towards girl children in the Indian society.

Though various campaigns are held, today’s Indian society has not nudged the inferior thoughts about women, let alone a girl child. The Indian society has enhanced to an extent where many speak of saving a girl child but instead turn their backs when the screams for help are heard. It is nothing less than the one day patriotism during Republic and Independence Day. Though the Indian society still lacks respect for girls and views them as an object of pleasure, there are young girls who fought their way up to fame with nothing but their sheer hard work.
