A Shower of RAIN

Rain... Rain.... bestow some reprieve from the scorching heat of summer, is all that we have been humming for quite some time. Finally, rain poured and the Delhiites rejoiced the weather. For some, drenching in the rain is the most upbeat way of experiencing the arrival of monsoon, but for others including me, sitting indoors and admiring at the scenic beauty of tiny droplets of water from the window pane is the ideal way of welcoming the monsoon.

Along with rains follow various frenzied problems such as water logging which  gives way to long traffic jams, the filling up of severs which invites some unwelcoming diseases such as Malaria, Dengue and Jaundice to name some few. The government, when asked about the way it has been improving the basic amenities and its result is best shown in rains, remain numb and clueless. All Our CM has to say is, ‘There is nothing much we can do, all is that we can ask god to stop raining.’ AHHHAH... WHAT AN ANSWER TO CONCLUDE YOUR STATEMENT. Well there is nothing more that we can expect.

Undoubtedly, nature has always something beautiful to offer but it is to the mankind that how it should be preserved without creating much commotion.

Delhi, The main hub for trafficking.

Delhi has already been termed as the rape capital of India and now it has added another feather in its cap by being the main center for child trafficking. Being a delhiite, it brings a kind of dissatisfaction when people talk about your city for all wrong reasons.

According to the recent reports, Delhi is the most horrible hit state for child trafficking; children from all states of India as well as from outside India such as Nepal, Bhutan, Bihar and Bangladesh are being trafficked. In order to avoid the scanner of the police, the trafficking agents operate in form of beauty parlous, massage parlous and escort services. The girls trafficked are not only shifted to other states in India but even to their main hub centers in Middle east and other gulf regions.

Girls who have entered their puberty are high in demand and are shifted to pubs in Mumbai as dancers and are even exported to Sheikhs in Dubai. Some are even delegated to illegal maid agencies from where they are recruited to work in domestic places. The growth of small children as employers is immense as they are easy to avail, crib less, are much cheaper and are easier to exploit.

After going through the prevailing situation, The Ministry of Home affairs has undertaken  a strict regime and has declared of setting up of 300 units of Police Districts across the states. Though, measures have been upgraded but it is still uncertain that what will be the repercussions.

Surrogacy : New way, to a New Life

In India, with the availing of medical infrastructure, a new door of anticipation has been opened for various childless couples. Gujarat is known for proving highest number of surrogate mothers to couples in India as well as in abroad. Many couples from abroad choose surrogate mothers from India because of the low cost involved in it.

The couple who procures the womb of a surrogate mother has do go under a legal agreement which states that all the cost of the unborn child and the surrogate mother will be given by the couple. Under no circumstances, the surrogate mother can refuse to give the child to the couple. If in case the child is born with a disorder, the couple still has to accept the child.

Surrogacy includes the genetics of the couple while the womb is of the surrogate mother. In this process, the sperm and the egg of the ‘would be parents’ is fertilized outside, and once it is done, it is then injected to the womb of the surrogate mother.

Many contemporary actors in Bollywood have also adopted this technique, the latest one being Shah Rukh Khan. The superstar after raising his two children to teenage hood has become a proud father for the third time of a baby boy. He stated in a press conference that he has mixed emotions and the reason being that his baby is pre-mature and has been in the hospital for long.

Who got the opportunity to bear the child of Shahrukh in her womb is still kept under wraps. While some believe it to be his sister-in law but nothing has been confirmed as yet.

Before SRK grabbing the headlines of his child through surrogacy, number of other actors such as Amir Khan and Sohail Khan has also been known following the same method.

Well, if it is to believe, with time surrogacy will become more popular and help couples to have their own genetic child without the complicated procedure of adoption.
