India’s Missing Daughters - Punjab

12 Apr 2007 to 26 Apr 2007

The Art of Living through its trust Vyakti Vikas Kendra India carried out a statewide campaign against the practice of Sex Selection (widely known as female feticide) in Punjab. The campaign was in the form of Beti Sneh Sanjivni Yatras. Punjab has the poorest child sex ration in the country and the Yatra (procession similar to a walkathon) was taken out in the districts that are the most affected due to the practice of sex selection. About 20,000 people and various organizations (religious, social, educational) participated in these Yatras.
