    I don't think this a good idea because when child is grow up he will get problem from many point. Mother love is ultimate love without it very rare people only get real teach......

      The idea of being single father looks brilliant to many and it actually very pathetic for the child growing up without mother's love. This is not to be encouraged as the child grows up without knowing the mother has a psychological impact on the child and these issues make the child into a problem adult in the future. Both mother and father play a important role in bringing up the child. Indian government chiid ethical laws are so poor and lacking in clarity of though. I don't know where the country is going. I strongly condemn this and feel very sorry for the child.

            I rarely say anything good about Bollywood, but why must do people stick their nose and comment on a man's personal life ?
