It’s always been said that women lie behind the success of every man.
In our country females are respected more than any male. Our country is the second-most populous country in the world. After China, India lies in making babies and the sex ratio of males to females has little variation. Although there is little variation in sex ratio, also there is a gap in ground and sky between these two sexes.
Girls are always treated as powerless and they are advised to stay at home while makes would go out to make money. This spirituality is losing these days but only in cities and almost ¾ of Indians are dependent on the same spirituality.
Apart from these restrictions, there are limitless crimes that are associated with females, and even they could not gain an education. Due to these reasons, many people in India don’t want a baby child or if done, they do not love them as much as boys. Either they ignore them via abortion or child marriage and everybody neglects a baby girl accepting a darker lie that girls can’t handle properties and responsibilities after the parents.
To extinct these, our government had launched so many schemes and programs so that girls can also lead a life equal to males. Out of these, we are going to state 19 different and top schemes that are launched by the Indian government to promote the lives of girls and females.
