In a bid to stop female infanticide in India and balance the sex ratio in the country, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, through Twitter, suggested that Indians should take random selfies of themselves with their daughters and post them on the social media platforms. The hashtags #BetiBachao and #SelfieWithDaughter have been extremely popular, and the PM has promised to repost the best of these selfies on Twitter.

Indian cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar, who is now an active social media user, tweeted a selfie along with his 17-year-old daughter Sara. Within 15 minutes, the post received over 500 re-tweets!
