It's 2020, but Indians are still finding ways to have a male child. Don't belive us? Well, this story is about to enlighten you why we say so. Also, the obsession for having a son is one of the major reasons for our increasing population.
So, this bizarre statement made by a Guru in Maharashtra has proved that we are still living in our own little bubble of stupid notions. A famous Marathi Preacher, Indurikar Maharaj, has suggested in one of his kirtans that having sex with a woman on even dates will fulfill their wish of having a son.
According to a report by PTI, he made these remarks during a kirtan at a village in Ahmedabad. He said, "If intercourse with a woman is done on even date, a male child is born and if intercourse is done on an odd date, a girl child is born. If intercourse is done on inauspicious timing, the child that is born would bring a bad name to the family.â
He also said that if one misses 'the exact timing of intercourseâ, one will have a 'poor quality kid'. Lord!
Following his outlandish remarks, a government official said, âGuruâs statement can attract action under the provisions of the Pre-Conception and Pre-Natal Diagnostic Techniques (PCPNDT) Act.â
Hereâs what people on the internet have to say about this Guruâs statement-

India recently also set a record on 1st January 2020 of welcoming the most number of babies born worldwide on New Year's Day. According to data released by UNICEF (United Nations Children's Fund), around 392,078 babies were born across the globe on January 1 and 67,385 were born in India.
Also, according to Economic Survey 2018, the obsession of Indians to have a male child has led to the birth of 21 million unwanted girls. This is an example of how the Indian mindset works and needs to change ASAP.
