Dear Teja,

For the project entitled "RECONSTRUCT THE LIFE OF A GIRL CHILD LIVING IN THE EARLY 19th CENTURY", you may include following points: (first, please get clarifications from your teacher as to how she/he interpret the word "reconstruct" and accordingly you can then use the information given below)
  • In introduction, give a brief account of the society that existed in the 19th century.
  • Discuss various social evils which existed in the 19th century with a special mention of sati, child maariage, female infanticide etc.
  • Use your imagination and facts to construct or reconstruct the life of a girl child accordingly. 
  • You may present your project in a form of a story.
  • For example, you may frame a story based on a life of a girl who against all odds receive education. In that process, you may show obstacles that she faces while living in the 19th century. Or
  • You may depict the life of a girl who wanted to gain higher education but was not able to do because women in the 19th  century were not encouraged to read or write.
