Bangalore: Six decades of independence has changed India’s government multifold, India’s economy, sports, relationship with neighbouring countries and what not. But the mindset and beliefs are still intact in our people. While the world gives examples of our oak strong traditional cultures, there are a lot of social issues which act like parasites in the beautiful “The Golden Bird”.

The most dreadful of them is the girl-boy inequality. No doubt Indian women are kissing sky, but if we look at the root level, the frightening picture surfaces. The sixty year period after 1947 has witnessed a loss of over 3 crore girls even before they stepped into this world. In the 21st century, the girl child continues to be murdered before she is born, to be precise, 6 lakhs every year. In fact it has been a practice for hundreds of years.

The embedded short film is a brave attempt which brings out the emotions of one such affected young urban mother. Written and Directed by Abishek Chandran, an Assistant Editor at SiliconIndia, the film “302” got screened in the International Film Festival of Rajasthan (IFFR) 2012 and made it to the ‘Top 10 Appreciated Films’ in the esteemed film festival judged by Director Devanshu Singh and Actor Virendra Saxena.

6: What do you mean by "oak strong traditional cultures"? The fact that we're one of the least clean morally ($125 billion black money)? Or the fact that we're one of the least clean physically (with 650 million defecating in the open)?
