When a mother of three daughters learned that she was expecting her fourth child, she desperately hoped for a boy. Feeling pressure from her close family and community to have a son, she was isolated when she gave birth to a daughter, and treated as though she'd committed a sin. In learning about this mother's predicament, primary school teacher Pushpa Kumari held a school rally to celebrate the birth of the baby girl, determined to maintain the dignity of the child and her mother. In this inspiring video, a village comes together to honor the sacredness of every life while bringing about a series of changes to affirm the value of education and community participation.
