Reluctant to speak Preity says, “It’s true. I’ve adopted these 34 girls. I’ll be looking after their entire upbringing from education to food, clothes, etc. You’ve no idea how wonderful it feels to hear the excited chatter of all those girls together as they welcome you into their lives. Believe you me, it’s the best birthday song I’ve ever heard.”
Preity doesn’t intend to be a sleeper parent for the girls at the Mother Miracle. “No way! Those are my children now, my responsibility. I’ll be constantly connected with them and I’ll visit them in Rishikesh twice a year.”
Far from finishing off her responsibility after financing these girl children, Preity plans to progressively enhance her social responsibilities.
“For a while now I’ve been thnking of what to do to help the less privileged classes specially the girl child. The horrors of foeticide and rampant child abuse are not just screaming news headlines for me. They’re voices that scream from inside me.
And I had to listen to them. These 34 girls are just a beginning. I plan to adopt a couple more every year during my birthday. I can’t think of a better gift to myself.”
