Heading for trouble

Young Ramu took girlfriend to bed,
She got pregnant, 'coz he had misread,
The doctor's advice,
On birth control device,
And was wearing a cap on his head!

TOI 21/05/06: A survey of 50 adolescent boys from slums in Pune has revealed that only 28 of them used a condom. Another four said that they used "alternatives" like a balloon or even a milk bag! Twelve of the respondents said they didn't use anything. Read about the study here

    If the survey is a sample,
    Then it is quite an example
    Of why birth control measures fail,
    In population control we trail
    And produce kids in nos. ample!

  4. WOW..

    I say again..WOW..

    and like I said before, WOW !!

    Great stuff, Aparna...was only familiar with your work on Caferati...when a friend told me about a great blog on newsmericks...I had a doubt it had to be you..and came to find it confirmed.

    More power to your pen...

    Cheers :D
