The following piece of news appears in today’s Deccan Chronicle, Hyderabad. It’s a piece of news that might (or might not) gladden the heart of India’s next President to be. But it raises the all-important question: just because they make a lot of money and are so much in the public eye, is it fair to expect the IT industry to take the lead in everything?
Hyderabad, July 11: Hyderabad district health officials will be knocking the doors of corporate and information technology companies to launch a drive for male sterilisation.
Hyderabad district medical and health officer Dr G. Jaya Kumari said, “Vasectomy operations are very few when compared to the number of tubectomy operations and we have decided to launch a drive in the new action plan.”
“We will start with IT companies. We will explain its importance to male staff and tell them that they should come forward for male sterilisation operation surgery,” Dr Kumari said.
In 2007 from April to June a total of 6,365 sterilisation operations were conducted in Hyderabad out of which only 62 were vasectomies. The remaining 4,658 were tubectomies.

In related news, there was a mass absence of the male employees in the IT cos based in Hyderabad and the employees had cited ‘Pressing personal issues’ as the cause for the absence.
This is an opinion about male sterilisation. Female sterilisation affects her health. male enjoys a better sexul health after sterilisation. and he will not suffer any health efect. it is only a male chauvinist society that forces women to go for sterilisation. we need to change.
Family welfare program is need of the hour. There is no wrong in approaching IT companies to popularize male sterilization. After all they are very well off and highly educated. They can set a better example to male employees in the other sectors to participate in the drive to control population explosion. This is a golden opportunity for the companies to show their concern for the country.
