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.

I fall in love with Exotic India last year when I found accidentally a beautiful blue kaftan with a little printed elephant on it. Since then I am a fan of this lovely place and I am sure that I will be a lifetime. I feel that my relation with Exotic India is special because I like every article, they are unique, made with passion and each piece relates a magical, mythical story. I want to thank you for your promptitude by shipping so fast my order, it arrived directly from India to Romania (Transylvania) on the fourth day after I have set my order. I did not expect it so soon, my heart was filled with joy by such an amazing surprise. I appreciated it! I wish all the joy and beauty you bring to me turn back to you!

I would like to thank Exotic India for the very superior packaging and shipment of my order. Much appreciated! The order arrived very quickly. Many thanks!! I will always check Exotic India first for books in the future.

Hello Vipin K., thanks a lot for replacing the 4th volume of the Srimad Bhagavatam and sending me a faultless copy of the book so fast. The faulty pagination (missing and mixed up pages) is due to the bookbinding, of course, you are not to blame. Your customer service is excellent. And as your selection of books is extraordinary, I'm already looking forward to the next books that will reach me, perfectly packed and in best condition as always. ;-)
