It’s a hot Friday afternoon in Gurugram. In a lane curiously called Dalal Street, tucked away into a far corner is a two-storied white and brown coloured building called Bourn Hall Clinic. It is an infertility centre that stands like an oasis—so full of promise, but its sprawling and plush waiting lounge is empty. Save for the receptionist, an assistant and a guard, there is not one patient in there.
This is how it has been for a while now. “On a good day we have three to four couples but many times we have no patients walking in,” says a person who works there.
