Daughters are not welcome: an estimated one million girls are killed in India every year...

At New Delhi’s Parliament Street, dozens of paintings hang on fence along the footpath.

One of them shows a girl sweeping the floor, washing dishes and serving her brother as he studies.

The slogan on another reads “Girls are the nation’s soul don’t kill them”.

A group of men and women dressed in black are stand nearby, singing:

“If you are alive believe in the victory of life, if there are heavens somewhere bring them down to the earth, you are alive.”

They are students and social activists marching for India’s vanishing baby girls. Full story...
