Question 2

How can the stereotype that girls are a burden on their parents affect the life of a daughter? Imagine this situation and list at least five different effects that this stereotype can have on the way daughters get treated in the house. 

Solution 2

When stereotype people think that a daughter is a burden on the parents, it affects the life of the girl child in the following ways:

a. She does not have access to quality education.

b. She does not have access to proper healthcare and nutrition.

c. The chances of her becoming an independent and self-reliant individual are minimal.

d. She is deprived of love, care and attention.

e. Her morale and self-respect as an individual are affected.

After facing so many prejudices, she herself begins to believe in the prejudices and stereotypes that have shaped her life so far.

Question 3

What does the Constitution say with regard to equality? Why do you think it is important for all people to be equal?

Solution 3

With regard to equality, the Constitution says:

  1. Everyone has equal rights and opportunities.
  2. Untouchability is a crime and legally abolished by law.
  3. People are free to choose the kind of work they wish to do.
  4. Government jobs are open to all people.

In addition, the Constitution placed responsibility on the government to take specific steps to see that the right to equality is applied to poor and other deprived communities. 

The framers of the Indian Constitution set out a vision in the Constitution to ensure that the people of India are considered equal. This equality of all persons is seen as a key value that unites Indians.

We are all born free. Also, our Constitution has entitled us the right to equality as it is our birthright. Hence, it is important for all people to be treated as equals.  

Question 4

Sometimes people make prejudiced comments in our presence. We are often not in a position to do anything about this because it is difficult to say something right then and there. Divide the class into groups and each group discuss what they could do in one of the following situations:

(a) A friend begins to tease a classmate because he is poor.

(b) You are watching TV with your family and one of them makes a prejudicial comment about a particular religious community.

(c) Children in your class refuse to share their food with a particular person because they think she is dirty.

(d) Someone tells you a joke that makes fun of a community because of their accent.

(e) Some boys make remarks about girls not being able to play games as well as them.

Discuss in class what the different groups have suggested for the above situations, and also talk about the problems that can come up when raising the issue.

Solution 4

[Please form groups of equal size. Allow each member of the group to speak and carry out the discussion cordially. Reach to a proper conclusion with respect to each situation.]
