  1. Hats off to these kids for their achievement. But, give it a thought! what did they gain from it? Do all these rallies and all really help? they don’t! the fact is that people don’t have time for all this! the people those who have time for all this are not interested! Just by saying ‘save the girl child’ nothing’s gonna happen!! no matter how many many seminars or how many programs are conducted.. india’s gonna remain the way it is.. ORTHODOX! wake up kids! stop wasting ur time! if you all are so much aware of all this stop wasting time in doing such things! instead, implement the in ur life in the future! u can atleast make something out of it then!
