The reason behind adverse sex ratio is directly or indirectly related to a very old social evil, dowry system, and this is not like if someone is prosperous then dowry should not be the reason behind female foeticides, because as the more rich the more needs and demands, so people from the rich and prosperous regions too are afraid of marrying their daughter without proper gifts, and the gifts those are dowry in fact seems less always , no matter how much it is given, this may be one of the reasons, others can be the mentality of the people in the male dominant society that boys earn for the family and make the family proud, also forgiving men is so much easier than forgiving women, like if a girl wishes to go for inter caste marriage or if she wants to study more and there she finds someone for her then it could not be tolerated , they are still treated as a kind of burden and responsible for the shame and very rarely the fame of the family, whereas this not the case for the male. These thinking and mentality have become the inseparable part of the society, irrespective of the prosperity of people or region they belong. But we cannot ignore that some parts are far fundamental in their thought then rest part of the nation. (Please review......)

If you evaluate over a week's time, I take up one issue daily for thorough analysis. As the same issue repeats itself, so may be one day, you feel that topic has been skipped, the other day you find a thorough analysis on it. There is no point in just reading out 10 or 15 topics. Many people are already doing it on Youtube. Thanks!

With due respect, I would like to tell you that try to cover entire newspaper in your slides. Just think about those aspirants who turn it into hard copy on a daily basis.If after watching your summary, they are again referring to NP being apprehensive for any left topic then there is no point for your painstaking. Your 7th and 8th June summary lectures are improvised. You can consider suggestions to improvise or CAN NOT AT ALL. Thanks
