According to a report from the USDA it costs almost $200,000 to raise a child to age 17 in the United States. And corresponding costs of raising a child in India roughly works out to be Rs 56,00,000 ( As per TATA AIG Life Ad in Sep 2008 ) and that includes expenses of child’s (whoz now grownup ofcourse) marriage (yeah in India parents sponsor a child’s wedding)….Wow lookie how much I saved by not having a child/children….makes me feel less guilty of my shopping sprees & gives me an excuse to indulge in more…hey I can afford it cos I’m not a breeder!! Yipeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!
