Social equations are changing as having a single child is fast becoming the norm, writes Seema Sachdeva

THE bustling and burgeoning "great Indian family" has become a thing of the past. More and more young couples are not only opting for nuclear families but are also happy going in for one child. From something that was considered a rarity even 20 or 30 years ago, having a single child is fast becoming the norm in the urban milieu. This also makes sound financial sense in the current economic scenario wherein it is becoming imperative for both parents to be working so as to provide their child with the best of facilities. Whether it is better to have a single child or not, the opinions vary.

ARGE, colourful and flashy. Sunglass fashion this summer is definitely conspicuous. "Colourful frames are hot and as well as frames with way-out patterns, such as spider webs, peace signs or skulls," said Gabriele Gerling of Germany’s central association of opticians in Dusseldorf. Retro is the number one catchword. However, the styles are not reverting to fashion trends just from the 1950s and 1960s. This year everything from the 1930s to the 1970s is represented.
