A Village In Haryana Distributes Sweets When A Girl Child Is Born – Thanks To This Woman Sarpanch

Women do not wear a “ghoonghat” (veil) anymore. Villagers rejoice the birth of a girl child and make sure she attends school. All this was made possible by Neelam, sarpanch of a small village, Chappar, in Haryana. Watch this video to know more about her amazing story of change and success.

Neelam became Sarpanch of Chappar village in Haryana because she wanted to see a positive change in the village. Today, in the state notorious for having the lowest girls ratio (877), Chappar villagers distribute sweets and welcome every newborn girl child. And, after so many years, women of this small village have started living without a ghoonghat (veil).
