Indian Lambadi or Banjara tribal couple Vadthya Sukhya (L) and Vadthya Achi (R) pose with their twin sons Vignesh (C/L) and Ganesh (C/R) two of their eleven children at their home in Nalgonda District, some 150 kilometers from Hyderabad on October 21, 2011. Sukhya (45) and Achi (38) are agriculture labourers belonging to a semi nomadic tribe of the southern Indian state of Andhra Pradesh. The couple have had twelve girls in their quest for a boy- finally Achio gave birth to twin boys recently - giving them a total of fourteen children - two of the girls having died. As the global population hits seven billion, experts are warning that skewed gender ratios could fuel the emergence of volatile "bachelor nations" driven by an aggressive competition for brides.
