In our research we have analyzed and studied the cause of female infanticide in India. Since the cause cannot be pin-pointed out for a particular reason or for some reason we felt that the cause is mainly a vague one varying from people to people, society to society and also depending on the social and economic conditions. Since the data involved in this study can only be an unsupervised one we are at the outset justified in analyzing them using fuzzy theory in general and Bidirectional Associative Memories in particular.
We study and apply the BAM model to the problem of female infanticide. The main conclusions derived from our study are:
1. The number of children seems to have no impact on the various sections as long as they are male children.
2. In poor society, female infanticide is both direct and indirect i.e. the poverty plays a major role and these female babies die of malnutrition, starvation and lack of proper medical care. Principally people consider the girl child as a burden to them and hence decide against bringing up the girl child.
3. Women having inferiority complex is also one of the major reasons for female infanticide. The main suggestions are
i. The attitude of men towards woman must drastically change.
ii. Constitutional amendments should be made to protect and empower the girl child
iii. Women should be educated equally as men so as to bring down the feeling of inferiority complex prevalent among women.
iv. If the death of the female child is proved due to unnatural reasons the parents and in laws must be given severe punishment.
v. If the girl children are given some monetary benefit by the state then certainly for the sake of money they may not kill the girl child.
