The study was done by the same group of researchers who reported last year that more male babies than expected were being born to Indian-born women living in Canada.
In their research published in 2016, the researchers found that women born in India, who already have two daughters, gave birth to 196 baby boys in Ontario for every 100 girls while in most of the world, between 103 and 107 boys are born for every 100 girls and Canadian-born women living in Canada give birth to about 105 boys for every 100 girls.
Indians are known for their preference for male children, and a new study says some Indian-origin couples living in Canada — mostly those from Punjab and the Hindi heartland — may be practising sex-selective abortion out of a preference for boys.
Interestingly, the research published in the Journal of Obstetrics and Gynaecology Canada, found that longer the women lived in Canada, the greater was the gender imbalance in live births.
Only one of the four towers planned by Kanvar Nau Nihal Singh for the four corners of the tank was erected during this time.
Under Maharaja Ranjit Singh's orders, the town of Tarn Taran was enclosed by a wall.
Tarn Taran Sahib was part of the Bhangi Sikh Dynasty ruled by a powerful Sikh family of the Dhillon Clan from 1716 to 1810.
“After birth, son-preference continues to persist, leading to the neglect of girls and their lack of access to nutrition, health and maternal care in the critical early years,” A report from 2005 found a worldwide gender imbalance of at least 200 million more males than females, caused by the abortion of female babies.
Tarn Taran Sahib was founded by the Fifth Sikh Guru, Shri Guru Arjan Dev Ji (1563–1606).
He laid the foundation of Sri Tarn Taran Sahib Temple.
The new study revealed that the skewed ratio of male to female babies born to Indian-born women does not change with the length of time the women live in Canada, as the researchers would have expected it to.
Among all Indian-born women with two previous daughters, elevated male-to-female ratios were particularly evident among women whose mother tongue was Punjabi, findings of the latest study showed.
