World today is full of hypocrites, be it India or any other country, be it a small issue or as big as child marriage. We are the age of Gen Y still so behind the time.
In India according to Prohibition of Child Marriage Act (PCMA) 2006, the legal age of marriage is 18 years for girls and 21 for boys but as per statistics 49% of the girls get married before the age of 18 years and the states which have maximum such cases are Bihar and Rajasthan. It’s shameful that in a progressive and democratic country like India, this is still happening and more disgraceful is that the day like Akshay Tritiya is mostly the chosen date to commit such crime.
