INTRODUCTION
“Killing of an entirely dependent child under “one year of age” who is killed by mother, parents or others in whose care the child is entrusted”.
Female infanticide remains one of the main concerns in the 3rd world countries. It remains critical in 2 of the most populous countries namely china and India. The practice of infanticide has taken many forms .Child sacrifice to supernatural figures or forces, such as the one practiced in ancient cartage, may be only the most notorious example in the ancient world. According to Hindu mythology females are mainly glorified with the name Devi (an invincible divinity having lot of powers).But the same females are being tortured now a days. The adverse sex ratio has been linked with the low status of women in Indian communities not only in olden days but also in this 21st century.
Once in our lives, most of us must have heard that a child is a ‘gift’ from God.
