India Bride Shortage

India Bride Shortage

In this Aug. 13, 2015, photo, boys study in a classrrom at a school in Sorkhi, 150 kilometers (93 miles) west of New Delhi, in the Indian northern state of Haryana. Haryana's shortage of brides is the direct consequence of the skewed gender ratio in the state, due to sex-selective abortions in a society where many families prize boys over girls, mostly for economic reasons.
