Adoption is a big deal in India. Because obviously it demands guts to go on and address somebody else’s offspring as your own and consider him or her as part of your lineage. Very few people have the audacity to take the step. One such person of courage is CK Janu. She’s a tribal leader situated in Kerala.
CK Janu is making news ever since she challenged norms, once again, and went ahead with the adoption of a little girl from Chhattisgarh. In case of CK Janu, it is quite characteristic of her to do something of this kind. Having grown up in an environment where gender-inequality and social injustice co-existed, CK Janu developed a radical mind, which lets her take decisions that does she does.
She put in her application to adopt from Kerala, but as the waitlist was too long, CK Janu filed applications to other adoption centers in the country. Seven months ago she heard word from Matruchaya, an adoption center run by Seva Bharti in Bilaspur, Chattisgarh. After the procedural investigation and verification was complete, CK was given legal custody of her 2-yo daughter.
She christened the little girl as CK Janaki. According to CK Janu “We should be able to consider all the children in this world as our own. Why should we spend lakhs on infertility treatments when thousands of kids are orphaned?”
CK Janu brought her daughter home to Kalpetta, Kerala.
Now that she has adopted a girl, originally from a different state, CK Janu reckons such things do not and should not matter at all. “People want children in their own bloodline, because they do not want to give away their assets to an individual born to some others”, for CK Janu all kids – class irrespective – deserve equal love and protection.
And CK Janu has plans to adopt another girl once Janaki is a little older.
