I really enjoyed reading this book.
It was very descriptive and infomative about life in India.
I would like to ask meera if she found the research for the book difficult, as surrogacy is a very private subject and how easy was it to get information on family life in India.
Thank you Gransnet for a great read
It's surprising how much information is actually available on the net about surrogacy in India and I think this is because most of its users are from outside of India. Much of the research and in fact in some cases, the deal is done without ever visiting India. It can be done over the internet and over the phone. So I managed to get a fair amount of research done that way, however I also got to know a couple who have had two children via Indian surrogates, who were invaluable in giving me the inside story and what an emotional, difficult process it can be. I have acknowledged them at the end of the book, but I'm not able to reveal their names as there are some people in their families who do not know about the surrogacy. This does give you an indication of how, for some people, it is still taboo.
