My friends said that I will be killed too. Is that true?

Updated on November 11, 2015

Dear Daddy,

How are you? This mail will come to you as a surprise. Because you hardly know me. Same with me, even I had not known you till now. But God called upon me and told me that I will be born to you. I know all this looks very strange to you. But up here in heaven everything is planned in advance. So we come to know about things well in advance like who will be our parents and where will we be born and how our over all life will be. Depends a lot on our karma too but that is a different matter all together.

Today morning while I was playing with my friends, God called upon me and gave me the news that very soon I will be born in your house. I was very happy when he gave me a brief description of your background ( related to your education etc). I came to know that you and mother hail from an affluent family and that both you and mother are working. I also came to know that I have two grandmas and grandpas ( one from your side and one from mother's side). When we are told about the parents we are given some basic background about the immediate family. That is how I came to know about all this information. Like you don't know when I will be born to you and whether I will be a boy baby or a girl baby. The same way I have no other information other than that I have mentioned above. These are the basic information given so that we can mentally prepare ourselves. Things like how our lives will shape up and what we will be doing in our life etc are not known to us because it all depends upon many factors which are not in our hands and only God knows and decided. And those are never revealed to us.

Now you will be asking me this question “ why are you sending this mail to me?”. There is a very important reason for doing so. After discussing with God about me coming to your house I was very happy and I directly went to my friends and shared the good news. But unfortunately the happiness was short lived. They shared with me some recent events which happened with their friends which were horrifying and sad. They said that majority of the parents try to ascertain the the sex of the child and if confirmed that it is a girl child they want to get it aborted. That made me shiver. Will you try to do the same in my case too daddy?

I also heard that in the cases where the parents are not able to determine the sex of a child and they get a girl child they just abandon it or give it to orphanages because they want a boy child and not a girl child. Some of my friends say that girls are sold off also. They said that none of the parents want a girl baby. Is that true daddy? Why don't they want a girl child? What wrong did we girls do? If Grandma was not born then you would not have come to the world and you would not have married mother. Right?I have also heard that boys are given more preference than girls as they are supposed to be taking the family breed further and if a girl is born she is more of an expense to the parents because parents need to give a lot of dowry at the time of the girl's marriage. So basically girls are a burden to their parents. I have also heard that the grand parents give more importance to the boy child and neglect the girl child.

So I wanted to know that will you also try to determine whether you are going to get a girl child or a boy child and when you come to know that it is a girl, will you try to kill me in mother's womb? Or will you abandon me too after I am born? Please tell me that is not true. I promise you that I will make you proud of being my parents. Give me a chance to come to the world and showcase my abilities. Give me a chance to live and fulfill the purpose for which I am supposed to be born. I promise you, you will not regret being my parents. Please tell grandma and grandpa to not neglect me. I want to prove my friends out here that my parents are not the same as the parents that they had. I love you a lot daddy. Please love me too.

Your's loving

Soon to be your daughter

      I am blessed to have a daughter Harish and as you said she is so loving and affectionate. I am very proud of her. If only people knew the importance of women in their lives world would be such a better place to live.

      Ijeoma and Sharon I am sure a time will come when people will understand the importance of having a girl child. Hope it is not too late by that time.

      Even for a test tube baby to be born a mother's womb is needed ;)

      Siva222, these thoughts are badly needed to awaken the conscience of guys. Daughters are too loving and affectionate. We should be proud of them and nurture them with all love and care. You have done a great job, my friend. Voted up.

      Wow! That was lovely, I felt the plight of the unborn baby girl. I would tell her not to worry, God will take care of her.
