PS:
Even to these day, when many parents yearn for a daughter, there are still infanticide being practiced for want of a son. Being born a daughter is a curse in some developing and under developed countries who consider a daughter to be a burden. We are lucky that we are not in such a world.

But even today daughters are drowned in milk, those who escape death are sold to traffickers. Some families kill their daughter in law for dowry, and some are stoned to death because she got herself be abused. Such is the story of our daughters.

If you are from a country where a daughter is loved, and not considered a burden, remember those unfortunate daughters and do your bit.

For all the daughters both loved and unloved, we dedicate this collection of daughter quotes.
