In 1954, Bala Ram, a resident of Alewa village in Jind district of Haryana, brought home a bride. After 10 years of a childless marriage, Ram married his wife’s younger sister in the hope of having kids. However, the joys of parenthood continued to elude this village land-owner. But now, 55 years after they got married, Ram’s first wife has delivered a child.
Rajo Devi, 70, became perhaps the world’s oldest mother when she delivered a girl child on November 28, 2008 with the help of in vitro fertilization (IVF) treatment at a Hisar fertility centre. Rajo had entered menopause 20 years ago.
