If you read one story today that you want to pass on, let it be this one – the story of the Dharhara village in Bihar and how its traditions look out for its girls from the very day that they are born.

(Full post at the BBC) In Dharhara village, Bhagalpur district, families plant a minimum of 10 trees whenever a girl child is born.

“Today that day has come for which we had planted the trees. We’ve sold off the fruits of the trees for three years in advance and got the money to pay for my daughter’s wedding,” Mr Singh told the BBC.

“The trees are our fixed deposits,” he said.
