While India's girls are aborted, brides are wanted

Cultural preference for boys in parts of India results in some of the largest imbalances between males and females in the world. And that creates a demand for brides that human traffickers are willing to meet.

Film maker Carl Gierstorfer visited villages where brides fetch a price and teenage girls are snatched from their families. And he met the people who are fighting to stop this vicious cycle.

    India needs to undergo a cultural shift to respect women and the lives of female babies just as much as they revere male children . Without female babies being born and loved there won't be wives for men to love . That's the bottom line . Treating women with respect is the key to a better society as a whole. As it is currently India's society is bordering wretched because of their lack of respect for women . Love and respect make all the difference . Male double standard hypocrisy needs to be addressed . Women who get raped in India deserve for society to rally around them not condemn them . They deserve justice . The perpetrators deserve to pay for causing harm . The blame the victim mentality is a poor excuse for a collective thought and too convenient an excuse for men to be pigs . ( not that I'm saying all Indian men are pigs. They need to change their cultural awareness to respect for women .

    Hmm lets see.. If the hirls are aborted.. And boys are in excess. And they wont find a wife there.. Or a free ride out of that country.. Nor will any women willingly go there from other countries because of a major upswing in rapes and kidnapings to FORCE women into marriages. Seems that problem will be solved in 1 generation or 2 at most. No women.. No children.. No more problem.. Looks like the wirthless parents will actualy have to WORK for a living instead of forcing everything onto a wife thats only a slave to begine with by that backwards scoiety.. And since medical care is alnost non existant there. The overcrowding will ease quickly by attrition. So the slavery problem gone too. No parents to buy a wife. And boys too lazy to look. Not marriagable by western standards. Not wanted by western countries.. See? Problem is about to correct itself.. Caste system done it better than a all out war could achieve.

    worlds largest democracy is what India touts. Worlds large betrayers of civil rights towards women sounds more like it. How can they be so stupid to repeat Chinas mistakes? Easy answer. They r uneducated illerate chauvaist lazy pigs of an excuse for a man. Behave like that in a developed country and we will hang u by those precious jewels that dont make u a man.

    Its very apparent by the other comments. That the TRUTH about India and its rampant out of control birth rate. Is well known throuout the rest of our world. Wifes wanted?? Try endentured SLAVE in its truth. Forced to do the whims of the males parents.. Treated as a stray dog for entire time. And they actualy have laws that do everything to PREVENT a divorce from happening to any stuck in its scociety. Obsessed with a caste scociety that a total joke. Touting a high education that wont qualify to a real job in rest of world. Most countries will NOT credit any engineer from there to work on a water well. Doctors one step from smoke and mirrors education. But.. When live in a sewer.. Think the whole world dont smell as good.. Been there.. Left fast.. Never go back FOR ANY REASON! Actualy amazing that comunicable diseases havnt wiped out the whole population. Since sanatary conditions are rare anywhere. And they wonder why women from actual civilized countries are NOT willing to marry any of them?? Duh??

    India the country which gets more profits from its film industry which is the biggest in the world and look at their films anyanyone of them you will get only one moral lesson that romance is the best and other unethical and immoral things are taught to young children . That's why their child marriage rage and rape rate has no match in the world .

    I have a website that has been up and running for some time now, and for numerous reasons I want to replace it with a WordPress site.. . So, how do I start building the WordPress site – in a seperate folder from the "public_html" folder? Then when you are ready to move it into the public_html folder, do you have to correct whatever file-paths and link errors?.

    Unquestionably believe that which you said. Your favorite reason appeared to be on the internet the easiest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I definitely get annoyed while people think about worries that they plainly do not know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and also defined out the whole thing without having side effect , people could take a signal. Will likely be back to get more. Thanks
