Birthdays are big celebration nowadays and even more if you belong to South Mumbai. A girl named Pooja Singh missed her birthday after she forgot the count while waiting for her birthday.
Pooja had started counting when 300 days were left for his birthday. She was doing pretty well till the time she reached 67, but after that she completely forgot as to what the count was and she even took some mathematical classes to learn proper counting methods. But all in vain. She never arrived on the no of days left for her birthday.
And she had to miss her birthday due to that. It has been almost 2 years since she last celebrated a birthday, but we don’t know when the next occasion will arrive. Pooja has taken help from RD Sharma, and other mathematicians to help her calculate her next birthday but she did not get any solution.
There are many girls like Pooja who miss their birthdays and government should do something to help such people. The Beti Bachao Beti padhao campaign was exactly for this purpose, but it has had its flaws. It’s high time we counter those flaws and let our girls celebrate their birthdays. The opposition has also demanded a thorough discussion on how these incidents can be prevented in the future.
The govt. is also thinking of bringing a bill which makes it compulsory for the government to help the girls remember their birthdays.
