Description
Acknowledgement

This report on sociological study of Female Foeticide in Punjab is the outcome of the direction Hs Excellency. General (retd.) S.F. Rodrigues, Governor Punjab and Chancellor of Guru Nanak Dev University, Amritsar. I wish to acknowledge my hearty appreciation and gratitude to his highness for showing his deep and timely concern for saving civilization of Punjab.

My warm regards are to my worthy teachers who have taught me the 'know how' of the work.

My sincere regards for the worthiness of Dr. S.P. Singh, Vice-Chancellor, Guru Nanak Dev University, Amritsar who reposed his faith and entrusted me with this assignment of social cause and provided all the needed support to accomplish the task.

My thanks are due to Dr. Gurnam Singh, Dean Academic Affairs for constantly taking keen interest in the project throughout.

I express my sense of gratitude to my well wishers, friends, all the members of the faculty, officers and officials of Guru Nanak Dev University, Amritsar in general and Department of Sociology in particular, who have contributed in the accomplishment of the project by providing guidance, moral support and encouragement as and when required.

My acknowledgements would be incomplete without mentioning the names of other members of m team, namely Varinder, Bela, Prasanta, Deepti and Pooja who have worked as field investigators and toiled hard by traveling length and Breadth of Punjab to collect the required data for compilation and bringing the report in the present form. My thanks are also due to Pardeep, Alka and Gaurav for their secretarial support.

At the end, I must express my feelings of debt towards all those authors worse works have quoted in this write-up.

Testimonials

I recieved my Mahavir pendant today. It is wonderful. I was recently in Delhi and as it was a spiritual trip visiting Jain temples in Rajasthan, Agra, Rishikesh and Delhi i did not have the opportunity to shop much. The pendant is beautiful and i shall treasure it. I have attached a picture of me in India. Your country and the people will always be in my heart.

It is always a great pleasure to return to Exotic India with its exquisit artwork, books and other items. As I said several times before, Exotic India is far more than a highly professional Indian online shop; it is in fact an excellent ambassador to the world for the splendour of Indian wisdom and spirituality. I wish a happy and successful New Year 2017 to Exotic India and its employees! You can be very proud of yourself!
Dr Michael Seeber (psychiatrist and psychotherapist, Essen/Germany)
My last order arrived in a reasonable amount of time, regarding the long way it had to take! I am glad to find this and some other ayurvedic remedy, as well as books and much other things at your online-store and I am looking forward to be your customer again, some time.
