hhemalatha-award“The success of doing the story will come true if the number of infanticides drop considerably in our country,” said Ms H Hemalatha, chief sub-editor with Vijaya Karnataka, who won the third prize in The Statesman Awards for Rural Reporting 2012.

Ms Hemalatha brought to light how mothers at Kollegal Taluk of Chamarajanagar district in Karnataka see their newborn girls being killed by an elderly woman. The reason is that the villagers consider it useless to feed a girl, provide them with education and finally arrange money for their marriage.

She said a significant decrease in the gender ratio of children below six years of age in Chamarajanagar was noticeable and the real story behind the drop was shocking.

As she maintained in her story: “Generally, an elderly woman kills the girl child. This can be done in several ways. The infant is fed with some powdered poisonous seeds, by mixing paddy grains in oil, throttling the child with a rope, and by wrapping it in damp cloth and exposing it to cold weather. Many a times, the infants are left near ant hills or buried in the fields… Families that have committed the crime go away to Tamil Nadu and come back only when the incidents are wiped out of the public memory.”
