Even though today the daughters of the country are waving their flag in every field, but even today the birth of girl child in rural areas is considered a burden on the family, but the important role of daughters in society cannot be ignored. Daughters are special in every sense and a priceless gift given by God, so Daughter’s Day is celebrated in honour of daughters. On this day, daughters are made to feel special, they are appreciated and they are made to believe that they are special and capable in every way like boys. (National Girl Child Day)
