News in the media today that after the latest census in India, there appears to be a disparity growing in the population in certain age groups of the number of males and females. This is due to cultural factors such as female infanticide and a preference, more apparent in some states, for male children. India is becoming a male dominated society in more ways than one. There are reports also that couples are sometimes using tests to see the gender of the child before birth and then have an abortion if it is female.

India is progressing in so many ways and yet remains medieval and backward in others.
