In India, technological advances have resulted in greater economic affluence for the people. While embracing modernization, India also struggles to break away from traditions of casteism, classism, and dowry. The Indian government has made providing free primary education to all children a priority, but getting girls to school has been challenging. To ensure that girls receive education, the grass-roots organizations work hard on reaching those communities that resist sending girls to school. In this article, the author observes how Indian girls are being discriminated against in school.
