In particular, Mumbai’s quins, born to a couple in far-off Mira Road, carefully nurtured by Dr. Priya Alvares of the Bhaktivedanta Hospital, finally delivered on the first Friday of last September at the Ambani Hospital in Andheri. Five males, all born safely (though one died three weeks later in the same hospital), this is only the 17th case of natural quintuplets, conceived without fertility-inducing drugs.
Parents Obaid and Sabira Khan have ensured that their tiny lives are peaceful and free from media frenzy. India’s first set, of quins (minus one) continue to do very well, thank you. Though with their first child also being a boy, the mother says she would have liked at least one girl!
