My vasectomy

I underwent vasectomy operatin in 1966 when I was 27 . Why is that I am making an annuncement now ?Ther are two reasons One that caused me pain. The other that inspired me1. Recently several women lost their lives after family planning surgeries on them in Chattisgarh.Let us forget for a while about the post surgical care and concetrate n why most family planning perations are done on women in India
. It is the fear of loosing manhood in the minds of men and a feeling in the patriarchal society that woman is expendable especially if she is the daughter of some other family
2. Last May (2013) actress Angelina Jolie went public that she got her both breasts removed but still she felt that she was a complete woman. Because of that many women shed their inhibitions and got themselves tested for breast cancer.In one year after she went public the NHS breast cancer testing referrals have doubled. This inspired me to go public n my vasectomy. If 2 more men get themselves operated instead of leaving it to their wives to get operated, I feel the purpose is served

In 60s the slogan " We are two And we have two " appealed to many. so they limited their families to two.
Myself and my wife decided that if we were to be blessed with twins in the first attempt , we should stop going fiurther . We had 2 daughters by the time I was 26 and she 23.
After the second child was born my wife got copper- T inserted. It did not suit her and she got it remved. Meanwhile she joined a college as a lecturer. Unfortunately she became pregnant then.I left it to her to keep or drop. She underwent an abortion. We felt guilty.
Not to give guilt another chance I decided to undergo vasectomy because it is easier and safer than tubectomy.There were no two increments to the employees salary for under going the operation , in those days . It was implemented after a couple of years

We went toVictoria hospital in Bengaluru. The surgery took half an hour. After resting for about 15 minutes, we walked to the auto rickshaw and went home

I must now say 2 things
1. We have only daughters and they look after us well. We are both above 70. We do not miss a son !
2. Men need fear no loss of manhood and one can get recanalisation if it becomes necessary at a later date

  1. గుర్తుకొస్తుంది!
    నేను 84 లో నా పి.జి. పరీక్ష అయిన
    మరుసటి రోజే పై అధికారి అనుమతి తీసుకొని
    నేరుగా వెళ్ళి ఆపరేషన్ చేయించుకున్నాను.
    అక్కడ నుంచి బాంక్ లో పదివేలు రూపాయలు
    తీసుకొని, విడియోకాన్ కలర్ టీవీ కొనుక్కొని,
    పిల్లల తో, శ్రీమతి తో వారం రోజుల స్పెషల్ లీవ్
    హాయిగా గడిపిన రోజులు గుర్తుకొస్తుంది!
