The Art of Happiness!
In India, it is still not uncommon to tell if a woman is sterile and sometimes even worse just because she hasn’t conceived a child till her “designated age”.
The family planning scenario in India lasts as long as your salary from day 1; exactly, it’s not that long.
This art came to rescue in the dark times of mankind when people were suffering from the horrific foreboding sterility of their women and they had literally nowhere to go other than the Gods themselves i.e. “Tantriks”.
The superstition didn’t just die even after the first of its kind operation which took place around 1983 and the woman was paid around 10,000$ to carry the baby in her womb with the help of egg donation.
Oh my Gosh, what did you just say?
Don’t you agree with the concept that angels leave a child in a red basket just outside the door of your parental house?
Well, I’m familiar with that concept but I just don’t understand the lottery system on which the angels choose which house to drop the next baby in.
So my pathetic mind says the right of equality in the constitution of India should add this clause as well!
Well, I’m not pretty sure whether angels follow our laws or if we are going to change them in the nearest future.
What I believe is that either you behave just like a frog in the deep well or you get into the depth of the situation!
According to a study, there are almost as much as 20 million orphans in India, which constitutes to almost freaking 4% of the population.
Well, that’s true!
So what are you going to do when your woman has been labeled as a “Dayan” which also happens to be my favorite!
You don’t hear them a lot these days, do you? Aargh… damn people.
Anyways coming back to the point, these stats leave you the two options which either adopt a baby or carry on with your miserable life.
Unfortunately, there is another provision to fill your life with happiness and that is surrogacy.
Yeah, I said “unfortunately” because I think more children would have been adopted if not for that damn surrogacy.
So anyway my job doesn’t allow for me to be biased so I would just tell you the “God-forsaken” procedure which I personally like to call “the exploitation”, so here it goes…
First, of all of you need a surrogate and after that, a technique called “in vitro fertilization” (IVF) makes it possible to gather eggs from the mother, fertilize them with sperms from the father, and place the mixture into the uterus of a gestational surrogate. The surrogate then carries the baby until birth.
There are probably 2 problems with that,
First is that the surrogate is probably going to dig a big hole in your pocket and swallow your hard earned money as a whole without even much of a burp.
Second is there are the cries of the millions of orphan children which will not make it possible for you to sleep in the future.
Don’t believe me? Try if you want to!
So don’t believe in that laboratory procedure of “mixture”, you do not know whose baby they are gonna give you O.o… (Scary).
Just walk up into an orphanage and ask for a child who you think is your bundle of joy.
P.S. If you still want to go with surrogacy, there are a bunch of agreements between you, your surrogate agency and hospital so, you need not worry!
