New India needs a rethink on adoption
#1
Social realities and mores most often influence the way policies and laws are framed. Opposition to, and/or recognition of fast-changing social realities are part of this process of construction. Take for instance the recent debate regarding the provision that suggests certain modifications to adoption requirements in India. Now single fathers cannot adopt girl children, and live-in couples are ineligible to be parents according to the Ministry of Women and Child Development. This can be interpreted in many ways-especially in a situation where there are many unwanted, malnourished children waiting for homes and the joys of a normal childhood.

It is the idea of the 'normal' that has become the crux of the debate here. Adopting a child has come to be defined keeping in mind the child's needs rather than the parents'. Thus, the child must be given a healthy and happy environment where he/ she can grow with love, affection and care.

Now, the normal family is not defined by its caste or community affiliations but by other markers of social legitimacy. Many have interpreted the exclusion of single fathers (and not single mothers), and livein couples as a move intended for sexual minorities and unmarried heterosexual and homosexual couples. The desire to safeguard the child has translated into an act of defining familial relationships. Does this take away the right to have a family from the individual?
