Ultrasafe masks gender


Abhishek Biswas, who is now doing his MBA at IIMCalcutta, identifi ed ultrasound machines as primary facilitators in female foeticide and began working on ways to censor the image so that even doctors and lab technicians cannot identify the sex of a foetus. He has named his invention ‘Ultrasafe Ultrasound’.

While ultrasound machines cost $10,000-30,000 (Rs 6.2-18.5 lakh), the cost of installing the masking software is a mere $500 (Rs 30,000). This could end the curse of female foeticide in India.
