Neglect of women and patriarchal society failure for centuries to know their inherent capabilities netted the imbalanced situation with girls ratio sharply falling vis a vis boys (CSR). Women empowerment is the crucial answer for country to boost critically fallen Child Sex Ratio.

Sec. School Jourian said girls excelled where ever they were to counter falling girl child ratio women need to be empowered to let society know their inherent but hidden potentials towards nation building.
Bijral said girls are increasingly outshining boys academically and capturing fields once considered male fiefdom. But a conscious effort both at administrative and societal level is called for to redeem the critical CSR developed in the country. In J&K state out of 22 districts, 15 are listed critical with abysmally fallen CSR, in the country.
