[] Dr Nandan Singh who celebrates the birth of baby girls, and helps pay towards their future-AGRA [1 Attachment]


Meet the caring doctor    Dr Nandan Singh who celebrates the birth of baby girls, and even helps pay towards their future - AGRA

·         Dr Nandan Singh has been the medical superintendent of a community health centre in the suburbs of Agra since 2012

·         Singh has helped in the delivery of about 1,000 babies but has a special place in his heart for daughters

 According to the 2011 Census, for every 1,000 boys born in India, only 927 girls were born

And the birth of every girl child under his supervision becomes a celebration. 

Singh has helped in the delivery of about 1,000 babies but has a special place in his heart for daughters. 

For years, he has tried to secure the future of girls born at his clinic with monetary help and counselling for the parents. 


He said that previously he and others at the clinic in Khiranwali area, 25 km from the Agra district headquarters, would open a bank account for every girl born there and deposit `100 each month while asking the parents to do the same. 

But gradually that practice has faded away. 

'We used to distribute sweets [after the birth of every girl child] and even some public figures [politicians and senior administrative officers] would come here to encourage us. 

The doctor also has a thought for parents unwilling to raise a girl. 

'I only have a 13-year-old son, and every time I hand over a girl child I humbly request them that if "you do not want to bring her up, please give her back to me",' he said.

The clinic has also started a fundraising campaign for girls.


'About two years ago, I requested everyone to donate at will for the education of girls. We collect the money and after finding a suitable girl, make all arrangements [for her education]' he said.

'We are inspired by Modiji's slogan of Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao.'
