Another masterstroke by Modi ji.
but well read and highly educated girls normally forget family bond for the simple reason that they ASPIRE ---MORE AND MORE
The campaign of the Modi go nment 'Beti Bachao Beti Padao' has become successful.
莫迪政府发起的“Beti Bachao Beti Padao”运动取得了成功。
Higher a woman gets educated, she becomes unfit for a family life. A Lower educated woman runs family perfectly.
Good ...you marry an uneducated one...your life will be wonderful :)
Educating women properly will uplift any society to higher levels as education brings consciousness, conscience and these together will bring about revo tionary changes in our social sy em, remove casteism, discriminations, taboos and superstitions; a great news
Excellent work done by Govt and education ministry. This will certainly help to gain more women respect in our society.
Get ready for more divorce filed
Women are mothers of every man, and I am happy by their betterment. You are a andha virodhi (blind opposer).
Higher education is meant for Men.
Women should learn to roll chapatis and cook good food for children and play night games with husband.
Drtic not many will like you comment but again you spoke truth
18% more women are indipendaant,means not going to marry in early age and going to challange mens world,is good sign INDiA is Going to be more strong and modern,,it's revo tionary,,,
In every area, this govt promed females, which includes defense, judiciary, finance, po itics, and education. Stopped medieval law like triple Tk, to generate respect for females. For Mudra yojana more females get loans. This is really needed in India, without the development of females(50% of the population) a country cannot develop.
It is a good sign -- Girl students outshine -- in academics and skills endowments too ---- as they have lesser distractions - more patience/perseverance/endurance power .....
women power is strong
Ego rises according to the education levels
Knowledge is power. Having said that, unfortunately, Feku has turned India into the rape capital of the world. There is simply no safe place for our women and girls because they could get raped anytime and anywhere, be it in the street, at work, in a market, in a temple, at school, on public transport (metro, train, bus, ferry, rail), or even at home.
good to see increased participation by women's in education
More divorces to take place in future
Hope chances of male getting employment is affected greatly
