It is Right to generalize the behavior of Indian parents and make a statement for all parents. Most parents nowadays encourage their daughters to be Illitrate as their Daughters.
One Parents have two daughters. Both of them are Not Educated and Dependent on Hudband livelihood.
It may not be same for all parents. The people who are grown up in rural and semi-urban areas follow the values of their society where the girls are not given as much independence as boys. However, the things are changing quite fast with the education of girls in India.
They are not only catching up the boys but even excelling them in many fields of life.
