Strangea Girl’s Birth Is Celebrated

Updated: April 25, 2015 1:04 pm

The village that plants 111 trees when a girl is born is in India. Believe it. And that is too in Rajasthan, where otherwise families prefer the birth of a son. The neighbouring states, Haryana and Punjab, the ratio is screwed because of alleged killing of female foetuses. Piplantri village in Rajasthan not only embraces daughters but has created a tradition that benefits both the local people and the planet. This endearing village makes a conscious effort to save girl children and the green cover at the same time, by planting 111 trees every time a girl is born. A brilliant exercise in eco-feminism should inspire India and the rest of the world.

This wonderful eco-conscious tradition ensures that an increase in human population will never come at a cost to the environment. It is literally helping to ensure a greener future with each new generation.
