About Daughter’s Day
Daughters are known to be the angels sent from heaven to fill the heart of the family members with joy. A special day is dedicated to her presence and contribution to a family in small scale and the whole nation at large and this day is known as Daughters Day. Actually, there is no such great history of Daughters Day celebration in our country but for the past few years this day has gained a prominence in the public eye. If one looks back in the pages of history, the daughters of our culture have always played a major role in safeguarding the pride and honor of the family. They do the same thing even today! For quite some time, the 4th Sunday of September is celebrated as National Daughters Day in India. The metro cities like Delhi, Mumbai, & Bengaluru started to celebrate this day and now the importance of this day is engulfing the whole nation. Flowers, gifts, and accolades are showered on the girl child. The recent few years have not been easy for the daughters in India and that’s why a celebration of an event like this is important to raise awareness about the potential of our daughters. Today, when the daughters have broken all the shackles and came out and proved their caliber in every field be it astronomy or sports, drama or politics – it’s high time that they get their due. This day is celebrated with a view to bring more power to girls, to encourage their talent, and to promote an awareness to stop violence against girls, and to educate them.
Why Daughter’s Day is celebrated?
Gone are the days when Daughters were considered to be a burden. We as a nation have come a long way in giving girls their due. We still have a far way to go. Daughter’s day is the best day to tell your daughter what she means to you. How much you love her and want the best for her. When a daughter is born, she fills the house with so much joy and as she grows she becomes your best friend in no time. Such is the power of daughters as they take on many challenging roles while growing up. One day to celebrate them is less but good for starters!
One of the campaigns of the current government is “Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao” (Save Daughter, Educate Daughter). The prime motive of this program is to check female feticide, improve sex ratio, and educate girls across the country. So, all these great ideas beautifully soak with the National Daughters Day which is celebrated to raise awareness among people about the girl power.
