Lohri Beti Ke Naam

lohri beti ke naam

Lohri Beti Ke Naam is another programme started under MISSION 2010 which got tremendous success from every quarter of the society. Started with participation from 114 families who dared to change the mindset of the society which was strict in celebration of Lohri on the birth of male child only and depriving the girls from such honour, This year about ten thousand families came forward to support this initiative of gender equality. Most encouraging was that despite the chilly weather and foggy roads about 2100 families reached Karna Stadium, Karnal with their daughters of less than one year of age to show their love for their girl child. . All parents who took this bold step to celebrate the birth of girl child were honoured with special mementoes having photograph of their girl and a special message that their daughter can become the next Lata Mangeshkar, Indira Gandhi, Kalpana Chawla, Sania Mirza, Kiran Bedi if they provide her equal love and facilities in life.
