The future of Sikhism

The future of Sikhism would appear to be bleak - at least in India - where Punjab (the home area for Sikhs) has the lower ration of women to men in the country - only 798 girls for every thousand boys under the age of six.

BTW the average ration in India is 927:1000 -- still well below the worldwide average of 1 050 female babies.

The worldwide average is of course depressed by the widespread abortion of female foetuses and female infanticide all over the world (perhaps some medical authority can inform me of what the "natural" ratio of females to males should be among humans?)
