Sadhguru: From whom?

Questioner: From parents and…

Sadhguru: Oh!

Questioner: So… and I’m really confused.

Sadhguru: Do you remember when you were growing up, when your parents… When you were a child, when you were a little girl and then you were an adolescent and as you grew up, did you see your parents, whenever they looked at you, in tears of ecstasy and joy? No. How did you see them?

Questioner: Angry.

Sadhguru: Angry. So angry and tense and agitated about many things that you were. They just want to make sure that you don’t get away. (Laughter) They want you to go through all that. So pressure… it doesn’t matter, pressure. It is just that… One thing is for yourself, another thing is for the world. Bearing a child… Please sit down… It is not that children are wrong. We were all children some time ago. It’s not about children being right or wrong, it’s a stupid question, it’s not even a thought, okay, it’s a silly thing to think whether they’re right or wrong. It is just that there was a time when a woman would easily have a dozen children in her lifetime. Hmm? And it was normal. Three, four of them died; seven, eight of them lived, that was normal. Now, most women who have children here probably have two; some of them slipped through and they became three.

Almost nil, isn’t it? But if you ask this question about 50 years ago, almost any woman in the region of early 30s would have five children or six children.
