Gujarat couple opt for family planning after 17 children

Ahmedabad: A Gujarat couple hailing from tribal district Dahod thought of going for family planning after producing 17 kids, which includes 16 daughters and 1 son.

The figure could have touched 18 if the whole village did not come together to pursue them to undergo tubectomy. Ramsinh, 44, and his wife, Kanu Sangot, 40 wanted a boy and in the pursuit they produced 16 girls. The villagers then decided to visit them and make them understand the importance of family planning.

Strangely, the couple have yet to name their 17th child. The couple even do not remember the birth date of their 17th child.
