In Bihar, gender and development are interwoven.

Women account for 52% of the population in Bihar, but are low in literacy and maternal mortality rate . The state is laggard in terms of growth indicators, but the situation hasnt improved much .

Growth is good innovation: inclusive growth, contextual modernization, and similar activities must be achieved.Women are the center of all of them, as well as at the heart of all.Women account for 52% of the population in Bihar.In terms of growth indicators, the state is laggard.

Our women, on the other hand, have a low literacy rate and a high rate of maternal mortality rate.Both mental and physical wellness are equally important.The girl child should be the starting point.We educate a child, then we educate a family in the end.

Many national and international government and non-governmental organizations (NGOs), as well as non-governmental organisations (NGOs), are collecting data to highlight the situation of women in Bihar.NGOs, in particular.It seems to be spreading a myth of development over here, which is why the situation hasn't improved much.We must wonder why Bihar's growth is so slow if everyone is concerned and why is it so slow?

Nonetheless, the correct way to move the situation isn't to neglect women.The gender perspective is also critical.Gender and growth are an integrated subject and demand that policy and practice support social justice and gender equality, if not equity.We must remind ourselves of our rich cultural heritage, in which women excelled in all areas of life.

Today, gender norms that are not necessarily western are relevant.The binary western approach negates the plurality of gender identities.Pseudo-feminists from upper class or caste identities often use gender discourse to reposition themselves and take advantage of state policies for gender equality, such as on the value of dowry or electoral representation.In Bihar, access to housing for lower castes, especially women, has been difficult.

We must also remember transgenders, whose lives are made more complicated by formal social vices.The Dowry needs to be stopped immediately.Let us not attend any marriage in which dowry is exchanged.Besides, make sure that girls have a equal ownership interest in their parents' property.

While the increasing enrolment rate in schools is beneficial, it is not the only way to go.It is even more important to ensure that the retention rate in schools is high and that the abandonment rate is decreasing.Outside of teachers, the schools must have basic services like toilets and potable water.The biggest challenges in urban centres are more in terms of a safe environment and other opportunities.

We're still preoccupied with reducing the fertility rate, particularly among the poor and in rural areas, while the issue of infertility in urban areas is troubling.Domestic abuse receives a lot of funding for research, but it is also a low-key debate.We have failed to tackle the social injustice perpetuated by a decentralized mindset of those who have continued to enjoy the social rewards and violate the gender norms of human life.We have come across a paradox in the midst of the urgency to start from the child.

The first is subtle due to the Pre-Conception and Pre-Natal Diagnostic Techniques Act, 1994, but the second is ostensibly true, as shown by the burgeoning presence of IVF clinics around the province.Let us think about some of these issues for a moment or two.Is the indulging domestic labor of women counted?And what about the emotional labor in which they are continuously engaged?

They should be.We need to mature as individuals and as communities by means of consonance and complementation.(The contributors are associate professors at the Indian Institute of Technology Patna's department of humanities and social sciences.)
