Nakoshi - Havishi - Renaming of unwanted girls

 Dr Sudha has notice first in 2007 in Satara Dist. Of Maharashtra that the “Nakoshi” names are given to girls- That means “Unwanted”. The most probable reasons for that is becoming called “Nakusa/Nakoshi” is that they were the second, third or fourth girl child in that family and the parents wanted a boy. They give the name “Nakoshi” Girls particular in poorer rural areas of India, have traditionally been seen a financial burden on their families because of the dowry that has to be paid when they marry. In contrast, boys are viewed as heirs, future wage-Carnes and family heads. People don't want baby girl but they prefer the boy only. This Nakusa-Unwanted girl fills very bad, very depress, they had poor self-esteems, they think that my mom, dad, everybody in relation, even society called me unwanted then Why should alive? There is no hope in my life, slowly she grownup and get married, become pregnant in future that time this vicious cycle repeat again and again. To break this cycle Dr Sudha started promoting the renaming of unwanted girls. 283 from Satara and many more from other district from Maharashtra state renaming was very much successful. Even one lady sarapanch named “Nakusa” was rename as “Jayashree” in pune district. Only renaming is not enough but the education and financial and social security is also equally important says Dr Sudha, She asked  help and support from Health officers from all district for this projects.

Story of Poor Neglected Baby There was a phone call from Press Reporter Mr Kakade from Shrigonda. He was giving me information, about a new born baby girl child, from very poor family she is alone in sugarcane farm. Because her mother is busy with cutting of sugarcane job. This is very heart touching story. I visited the place along with some citizen, counselling is done. Motivated mother to take rest herself, don’t go for job and take care of small new born baby girl child. We donated them grains and food enough for a month. This moment was very touching. Mother with full of tears in eyes says “ Thank You” and There only in sugarcane field we all celebrated the naming ceremony of new born baby name is given Sukanya.
