They said many people in villages are still carrying that notion that girls are inferior to boys and they must be confined to indoors. This is not correct and there is a need for creating awareness in order to change their mindset. “Today the times have changed, unlike earlier, there are lots of opportunities available for the girl children. Therefore, the parents must send their children particularly the girls to schools and set a good platform for their future career,” said the Kalajatha team. The Kalajatha team are visiting various villages and rural areas and conducting awareness programmes on Beti Bachao and Beti Padhao programme. District Collector Ronald Rose has initiated this programme and has entrusted the responsibility to the Kalajatha team for spreading the awareness in schools and rural villages.
