The male/female ratio in India is very alarming. Punjab, one of the developed states of India has the lowest sex ratio of females to males. This documentary is based on the factors behind this serious issue. After considering various comparative data’s, we found that everyone has their own excuses to abort a girl fetus. Escalating demands for dowry, share in inheritance, and security are some of the major reasons.
