This news will surprise you. A mayor in a Poland town gives a bumper offer to the native people for giving birth to a baby boy. In this town, only girls have been born for more than a decade. The first couple who will give birth to a baby boy will be awarded with a hefty amount.
The town named Miejsce Odrzańskie, in the south of Poland near the Czech border, has a population of about 300. But for the last twelve years, locals say, no male babies have been born. Tomasz Golasz, head of the volunteer fire brigade, told English-language news site First News, “It has been going on for several decades. I came to the village, took a local girl for my wife and we had two daughters. I would like to have a son but it’s probably unrealistic. My neighbour also tried and has two daughters. I don’t think women give birth to boys here.”
The mayor of the town, Rajmund Frischko, who himself the father of two girls is concerned about the situation prevailing in the town. Therefore, he is taking steps to encourage baby boy births in the town.
However, in India in some of the cities, the situation is the opposite. An investigation has been started into why no girls were reported born in dozens of towns in the north of the country. Of the 216 babies born in 132 villages in Uttarkashi over a period of three months, all were male. According to the reports, it is due to the result of sex-selective abortion. Even today males are still considered more desirable and girls can come with expensive dowries in some of the parts of the country, hence disturbing the sex ratio.
