Family name...

It is a known fact in Indian community that girl child is most unwanted and all of them desire to have atleast ONE boy in the family. This CHOSEN one is "supposed" to carry on the name of the family. Girls, well, they are married off and they enrich someone else's world.. So why have one right?..
Over the weekend I was talking to my friends abt the same thing and I started to tell my opinion about it and they all said, it was an interesting point of view. So I thought I should share it on my blog.. :o)..

When a girl gets married into household, when they make a family, they tend to follow what the girl has learnt over the years from their mom. When it is a joint family it might be little different. But in today's nuclear families, all traditions that this little family would follow will be exactly like what the wife knows. And NOT what husband knows. (well, you try asking them and they would shrug, well, you do what you want to do.. I don't know how it's done.. ).. Doesn't have to be just festivals or traditions... in almost everything, all little aspects of life, all values that you learnt from the parents,.... female of the house is the one who passes them on,.. to their daughters and the saga continues...

Wish everyone would see this and stop the pathetic state of wanting & wishing to have only boy child and go to the extremes to make this happen.. A child is a child, boy or a girl.... Think you are the blessed one if you are atleast be able to have One... and a healthy & happy child.. The bundle of joy who would bring all the love that you couldn't have imagined...
