A Girl child is born, now what ahead? Are parents happy or sad? They show their happiness to the world that according to them a boy or girl is same and they outwardly do party but inwordly there is some insecurity. 

That's true in India the insecurity starts right from the girl child is born. Her clothes are not changed in front of anyone right from she is one day old, a new bud. Slowly she starts growing, wants her bud to  become petals but fails. As she grows and wants to go to her relatives to stay, she is just told "NO". On the contrary the boy child is easily allowed to go. Parents are right but unable to convey the reason, but the little mind right from her birth being a girl fights within herself just finding the reasons for "NO".

She now starts growing and as soon as she is a teen the parents are more worried. But she as innocent, doesnt understand the restrictions, her bud is still a bud not able to take out the petals out and become a flower. She wants to fly but her feathers are cut and her whole energy goes into finding the answer instead of doing innovative and creative things, i.e the caliber she has.

She grows up and a  sudden stress comes to her in the form of Periods. This is a situation where she starts sufferring body ache and told to hide from all like it is her mistake and she becomes a close niche and again unable to understands its reason.Then she is told to stop wearing short skirts and be fully covered.

She not knowing anything - fear starts growing for something unknown. Slowly the company of boys is changed to company of girls. Parents know the reason but are unable to describe the reason to say "No". They also are unable to educate their child due to small age of their girl child and the conflict continues.....
