GANESH RAKH:DOCTOR WHO DELIVERS LIFE

Meet Dr. Ganesh Rakh from Pune who has set an example in stopping female foetecide in India. The doctor calls it his tiny contribution in saving the girl child.In 1961 the annual sex ratio in India was 976 girls for 1000 boys.According to latest census which took place in 2011 showed a downfall in girl child births with 914 girls for 1000 boys.In 2007 doctor Rakh started a small hospital in Pune. The doctor said that every time when a woman comes for a delivery then entire family has just one question to ask , is it a boy or girl.Biggest challenge for a doctor is to tell that the child is a girl. The doctor says that for him it is even bigger challenge to tell the family that patient has delivered a girl child.Even harder than saying that the patient is no more. They would celebrate if a male child is born.They will distribute sweets but if a girl child is born then they will leave the hospital. Some of the families asked for some discount for a female child, this is really shameful. Many people told him that they had taken treatment from some baba. I was shocked to hear that as i never heard of such miracle.Results of 2011 census were an eye opener for him as he was shocked to see extreme decline in girl child births than before. the issue came into light when Dr. Manmohan Singh , then Prime Minister of India called it a national shame and asked to crusade for saving Indian girls. Just after four years of his campaign launch titled The "Mulgi Vachva Abhiyan" which literally translates to campaign to save the girl child he successfully delivered 464 girls and he hasn't charged a single penny for that. He said that in our hospital where families celebrate the birth of a male child we celebrate the birth of a female child. Dr. Rakh told that to become a doctor was not his first profession as he wanted to be a wrestler but his mother never allowed him to go with that so he became a doctor.
