Dainik Jagran, is a leading Hindi language Newspaper. They published a half page story capturing the problem of infertility in India and appreciates the work put in by InfertilityDost to provide a helping hand to infertile patients. They write at length about our founder, Gitanjali Banerjee, quoting instances from her young age and life experiences which made her a strong and fearless woman to take up such a daunting social task.
Born and brought up in Lucknow, Gitanjali had to put up a big fight with her dad to convince him to let her pursue higher studies in Delhi. She completed her postgraduate studies from Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi.
Gitanjali, herself was impacted heavily with the problem of infertility and had to undergo a 10 year struggle before her second IVF attempt succeeded.
The problem of infertility has deep roots in the patriarchal and stereotype functioning of the society where not having a child is considered sinful and anti-social. The article in Dainik Jagran rightly throws light on this pertinent issue and raises questions on the root cause of the problem of infertility.
“Do you think it is the woman to be blamed for infertility?”
“Isn’t infertility just a biological problem?”
Well, in India being a woman itself is quite tough and to add to it if you have the problem if infertility then you become the corn of every eye. Gitanjali Banerjee, through her initiative InfertilityDost is fighting against this problem of infertility by spreading awareness, knowledge, support and right guidance. Let’s support her and InfertilityDost in this noble cause.Tags: article about gitanjali dainik jagran hindi newspaper interview about infertilitydost
