Ramesh Chandra Gupta (aged 38, left) poses for a portrait outside his shophouse in Ghaziabad, Uttar Pradesh, India. His wife, Seema Gupta (aged 34) had a tubectomy done on 9 June 2011 for family planning while they weren't aware of the option and benefits of non-scalpel vasectomy (NSV). They run a roadside sweets shop at the front of their house and chose to have a family planning surgery done as they did not want to compromise the quality of life for their two children. While Ramesh wanted only 1 child, both his mother and Seema pushed for a 2nd child. Photo by Suzanne Lee / Panos London
