It was gy long before when I first came to know about circumcision, but it was only for males. The information came along with the news that it has some sort of positive effect.
To put my view, I would say it’s not so. It was after that came a day when I came across movie Wwris Flower. I got to know about the terrible practice of female genital mutilation.
Both the sexes miss onto something nature has given them in such practice. What’s more evil is there are the cases where subject bleeds to death.

She however changes her fate and becomes a supermodel and even UN special ambassador At the end however, we receive data how those practices are made illegal and human beings living in those area are getting together towards a better future.
