WE SAY ... 

Celebrities like Sushmita Sen and Raveena Tandon are known and admired for having adopted daughters while single. And then there are celebrity couples like Aamir-Kiran (to have Azad) and Shah Rukh- Gauri (to have AbRam), who went the surrogacy route. Now in becoming a single father via surrogacy, Tusshar Kapoor who is known for "Kyaa Kool Hain Hum" and "Golmaal" franchise, has paved the way for many single men who wish to embark on the journey of fatherhood without having to wait for Ms. Right to come by, or perhaps the issue is something else. 


That brings us to the issue of legality. As per the Indian government regulations about Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART)/ surrogacy, starting starting November 4, 2015, commercial surrogacy is no longer lawful in India. However, there is no clear specifications regarding the status (whether single or married) of the intented parent(s). In the United States, the laws varies from state to state, some surrogacy friendly states only offering support for married heterosexual couples. In many countries like UK, New Zealand, Belgium, Netherlands, commercial surrogacy is not legal, but altruistic surrogacy is.


Legality aside, we say, why not? Every person has a right to be a parent. Of course, the best course is to be one in a situation where there are two loving parents to raise the child. However, modern times have given birth to modern families. So who are we to judge? 

We say, congratulations, Tusshar Kapoor, for leading the way in providing hopes to many!
