The obsession of a couple in Karnataka’s Tumakuru district made it have ten kids. The couple had nine girls all in a hope that one of them could be a boy, but finally their tenth baby has turned out to be a boy. While the couple is happy, there is a question, though, why so much happiness with a boy?
The couple has been identified as Baghyamma and Ramakshna of Kurikenahalli in rishna of Kurikenahalli in Tumakuru district.
Baghyamma gave birth to her 10th baby at the Primary Health Centre in Kodigenahalli. The couple has been married for the past 15 years.Baghyamma gave birth to the first child in 2003, after which she gave birth to eight more girl babies. “There’s hardly any age gap between the children,” hospital sources said.
“My wife and I wanted a son. So, we decided to have babies until we get a male child.At last, God has given us one,” Ramakrishna said.
Villagers, however, have different thoughts about the couple. “We suggested them not to have more children. But they never listened,” said Rangamma, a neighbour.
