A day was there when girls used to feel shy to talk to boys and telling their love was something unimaginable or regarded bad. Education for a girl in those days was not that importance, but marriage was and once married her life is to spent in the service of her family. Today everything has changed. Every girl today needs to be an educated girl, a college completed girl. A girl without any boyfriend is regarded in a low esteem.
