What is the greatest number of children you have ever heard of? You may think it will be8, 9 or 10 children but In India a Gujrati family has given birth to 17 children.
[junkie-alert style=”green”] Ramsinh and Kanu Sangot are parents of 16 daughters and 1 son and were hoping for more children but the villagers interfered and convinced Ramsinh that these children are enough. After the interference of villagers he agreed to go through the government initiative of home planning. [/junkie-alert]
Like most Indians Ramsinh preferred to have son which will become a helping hand for his old age and who will take care for her sisters. But after having a son in 2013 he again had daughters.
Out of the 17 children two died, while two older daughters got married and two other were sent to Rajkot to work in farms.
Ramsinh himself is a poor man who lives in a mud house and own as small piece of land where he grows maize and wheat.
