The Company being the leaders in the industry wanted parents to not only feel proud of having daughters but also express their love & celebrate it too.

India's gender imbalance has worsened in recent years and Daughters today in India is probably the least respected and un-treasured relationship. With female feticide happening in majority of states and reports flooding the media everyday on how daughters till today are thought as a burden in the family, it was inevitable for the Company to highlight the importance of a daughter. The Company thought of canceliing a day that would give Indians an opportunity to celebrate their daughters and tell them how proud their parents are of them.
