NEW DELHI (AFP) - Full-page colour advertisements in leading newspapers reminded Indians on Friday that daughters bring joy to life in a campaign designed to tackle the countrys worsening gender imbalance. Sex-selective abortions and female infanticide have left India with 914 girls for every 1,000 boys, its lowest since independence in 1947 and far below the global average of 1,050 girls for every 1,000 boys, census data shows. They fill our lives with smiles. They are capable of doing everything, stated the adverts by the central state of Madhya Pradesh, featuring a photoshopped picture of the chief minister appearing to hold a girl.
