The male population in certain parts of India is such at an all time high that the government has stepped in and is giving familes money to have female children.

Families having a single girl child in the Indian state of Andhra Pradesh will be given 100,000 rupees ($2,300) in an attempt to boost the female population.


Please visit the link provided for the complete story.


Hmmm, could it be because in Inida male children are prefered over females and that when the sex of the child is discovered and it's a female it gets aborted is the cause of all this???
Also, if you have more than one girl people tell you "you have two girl children, you have done some sins in your past life,"

Here's the kicker though say you do have a girl. Once the girl is born... off one of the parents and you get an extra 50k in rupees.

The stories are many just check out the supporting links.
