Jagroshan Sharma (aged 36, in grey) discusses work with Dr. Meenal Mehta (in blue), who is in charge of the USAID NSV projects in Ghaziabad, Uttar Pradesh, India, as they wait for a shared rickshaw to leave the village. After doing NSV himself, he has been a star link worker introducing about 5 NSV cases per month since he started working part time under the tutelage of Dr Mehta. Jagroshan had chosen to do a non-scalpel vasectomy (NSV) for many reasons. He wanted to be an equal partner in the relationship, knew that NSV was less complicated and will not put his wife through numerous problems, and wants his two children to do well in life and study in English medium schools despite his modest earnings.
