“I’m not good with children. I don’t know what to say to them after five minutes.”

But most Indians are having fewer children now and a growing number are choosing to never become parents.
The BBC’s Nikita Mandhani spoke to some Indians, who have decided to remain child-free, to understand their reasoning and the society’s perception of their choice.
