Aditya is a single man who has been fighting for the custody of Binney since September 2014.

To Aditya’s joy, the rules were changed from August 2015, permitting any abled person from the age of 25 years to become a single parent by adopting a baby. Even after the change in the policies, Aditya had to go through all the formalities once again to acquire the custody. Despite the fact that WCD (Ministry of Women and Child Development) minister Maneka Gandhi herself visited Matrachhaya, a shelter for abandoned kids and instructed them to handover the custody to Aditya straight away, it still took a long time for everything to fall into place.
