India’s sex ratio – a sad state of affairs
In India today the men to women ratio is rapidly declining. The road that lies ahead is a vast barren desert, and our country is poised to plunge into social disaster.
Usually when something is in short supply, it’s value rises and people scramble to either hoard it, steal it, swipe it, buy it at a premium, or at best, share it with loved ones.
As in some places in India, women are seen as ‘goods’, not people, they suffer the same fate. When in short supply, they are kidnapped, bought at a premium or shared with friends and relatives. Some men have no means to buy and if they have the criminal mentality, they will resort to crime. You can read about it here .
