Bollywood actor Tushar kapoor starts a trend by becoming a single father. Single men can be parents too.
The sudden news of Tushar Kapoor becoming a single dad came as a big surprise. The child who has been named Lakkshya was born through surrogacy, using IVF. Tushar Kapoor’s sister Ekta Kapoor took to Twitter and shared the photograph of the little baby with his grandfather – the veteran actor Jeetendra.
Tushar Kapoor’s brave and bold decision of becoming a single dad to a healthy bay boy, breaks the stereotype – that only women can be nurturers. This was not very common earlier, at least in India. This trend of becoming single dads seems to be gaining momentum and it is indeed astonishing as well as pleasing to see more men taking up the role of a nurturer, which indicates that gender doesn’t matter when it comes to being a parent. It is how a child is nurtured and raised is what matters the most.
The desire to be a parent can exist in any individual, whether it is a man or a woman. This trend also proves that men believe that they have the capacity to take care of a child’s emotional and physical well-being. In the past we’ve heard of celebrities like John Abraham who’ve wanted to become a single dad.
The only difference was that he wanted to choose adoption as the medium to become a single father whereas now surrogacy seems to be the new mode. According to Dr. Firuza Parikh director of IVF and genetics at Jaslok hospital and research centre who led the treatment in Tushar Kapoor’s case, many single men and single women are approved for parenthood and the risks are no more than the normal procedure.
This news surrounding Tushar Kapoor becoming a single father, has also sparked a debate whether surrogacy can be an option for single parents. Is there a law in India that allows single parents to choose surrogacy? Is it healthy choice? Is it moral? These are questions that would certainly ensue in people’s minds before they get clarity on the subject and the laws that abound surrogacy.
Whether surrogacy is a right mode to become a single parent or not is debatable. It’s left to be seen whether single parenting through surrogacy is a successful and a healthy choice for both the parent and the child. As of now, I’d like to conclude by congratulating Tushar and I wish him and baby Lakkshya a healthy and a happy journey.

If her MIL had accepted her with some affection, wouldn't they have built a mutually happier relationship by now?
The incident took place ten years ago.
Smita could visit her mother only in summers when her daughter had school holidays. Her daughter also enjoyed meeting her Nani, and both of them had done their reservations for a week. A month before their visit, her husband told her, “My mom is coming for 4-5 months!”
Smita shuddered. She knew the repercussions. She would have to hear sarcastic comments from her mother-in-law for visiting her mother. She may make these comments directly only a bit, but her servants would be flooded with the words, “How horrible she is! She leaves me and goes!”
Maybe Animal is going to make Ranbir the superstar he yearns to be, but is this the kind of legacy his grandfather and granduncles would wish for?
I have no intention of watching Animal. I have heard it’s acting like a small baby screaming and yelling for attention. However, I read some interesting reviews which gave away the original, brilliant and awe-inspiring plot (was that sarcastic enough?), and I don’t really need to go watch it to have an informed opinion.
A little boy craves for his father’s love but doesn’t get it so uses it as an excuse to kill a whole bunch of people when he grows up. Poor paapa (baby) what else could he do?
I was wondering; if any woman director gets inspired by this movie and replicates this with a female protagonist, what would happen?. Oh wait, that’s the story of so many women in this world. Forget about not giving them love, you have fathers who try to kill their daughters or sell them off or do other equally despicable things.
