If, a woman was not the very personification of dignity imbued with shyness then and then only she would have shrieked the untold pangs and sufferings that she undergoes while giving birth to a child.............." this is your blind faith which only knows how to beget children but does not know that if they are not well feeded, not well educated, and not broughtt-up  under proper care, what will be their future? They will only turn into robbers, dacoits and will rot in jails... You are a sinner who knows only how to bring innocent lives in the world but does not know how to feed them. You are an accused in they eyes of the humanity, society, state and the Nation. If, the law could fix-up any punishment for an accused like you, it would not be less than that of a murderer......"

This is what has been told by a brother to his brother, by a human being to his fellow-being, by an enlightened youth to the entire nation, who is not keeping pace with the march of time, who does not listen to their reverred national leaders and despite of their insufficient earnings go on begetting the children one after another "EK KE BAAD EK", leasr caring the future of their children, the future of humanity, the future of the society, the future of the state, the future of the nation and the future of the entire world.
