An expert talk on ‘Beti Bachao – Beti Padhao’ theme was organized by the NSS Dept. of Multani Mal Modi College here. Advocate Kusum Sood while delivering her lecture laid stress on educating the girls and developing their skills rather than giving them costly items as dowry on the occasion of their marriages. She further expressed that educated and economically self-reliant women prove to be strong enough to safeguard their rights. The guest speaker further said that people used to kill the girl child in her infancy in the past where as now they kill her in the womb of her mother. She asked the students to make their neightbourhood aware and help eradicating this social evil. She expressed hope that socially committed educated young boys and girls will contribute substantially in this national mission.
