Ek Ladki Ek Sapna

“If the woman cannot provide a son, her life is torn asunder by strife. To put it bluntly, the message flashed by society – and this is what people really think, no matter what they say – is that, if you have two sons, you have two eyes. If you have one son, you are blind in one eye. And if you have two daughters, you are completely blind.”
– Taslima Nasreen
The deep-seated cultural preference for sons has skewed India's 1.2 billion population's gender demographic, particularly in the states of Haryana, Rajasthan, and Punjab. Unfortunately, this phenomenon is no longer limited to Indian states. The physical and mental torturing of ‘girl-only-child-bearing-women’ in Indian communities in Canada has become a somewhat common occurrence. “Ek Ladki Ek Sapna” is the story of such a woman, who marries an Indian Canadian and immigrates to Canada with the hope for a perfect life.
