'Always Wanted a Daughter'

Thirty-year-old Gupta, a Class 8 dropout, said he served pani puri worth Rs 40,000 for free, but the value did not matter to him as he was elated after the birth of his daughter.

“The birth of the baby girl is a dream come true for me. Since I got married, I always wanted a daughter, but I was first blessed with a son two years back.“
