Six baby girls were recently born in a span of a short time in MP's Betul district. On hearing the news, a doctor went ahead with a gesture which is now being lauded by one and all.
When Dr Rahul Srivastav, stationed at the district hospital, heard of the births, he decided to go honour them.
He gathered his friends and family at the hospital, and presented each baby with a silver coin.
Dr Srivastav also urged the parents to give their daughters good education and encourage them to achieve new heights in life.
The objective behind this move was not to gain popularity, but to spread awareness among families that the girl child should be celebrated just as much as a boy, the doctor said, adding that he wanted to abolish the question - is it a boy or a girl.
The families were visibly pleased by the doctor's gesture and lauded his efforts to spread awareness.
