There are very few things on news which bother me now...blame it on sensationalism and drama, but this article hit something deep within me.

Afghan Women and the Return of Taliban.

Even if I discount the hype and drama, the incident did take place and that alone is enough to cause ripples of distress.

This is an extreme case which is shocking but it is equally disturbing, when educated pregnant women around me still bring up the topic of having a baby boy and new fathers get confused and say they had a baby boy when they actually had a girl and then later sheepishly justify by saying "Logon ne ladka ladka bolke, moo me dal diya"( People kept saying it will be a boy again and again and hence it stuck on).
