I am 26 year old guy from Pune. I am an engineer. My reasons for being childfree by choice are as follows.

1. Though it can be one of the most joyful experiences in the world for some people, raising children requires a lot of money, energy and time. Plus, your individuality gets hampered in the process. That makes it 'not worth it'.

2. Being an atheist, I believe-contrary to popular belief- that human life has no meaning or purpose. Plus, human life consists of suffering and not just happiness. Therefore, bringing a new person into existence who is going to have to suffer, doesn't make sense.
Non-existence is logically better than existence with (however less) suffering.

3. Earth is already filled with way more people than it can handle. It doesn't need your baby right now.

4. Assuming that your 10th generation decides to go childfree and everyone in your lineage has only one kid; based on average life span of India, you are the cause of 650 man-years of carbon footprint. That is huge. Humans are the source cause of global warming and not CO2.

As this lifestyle goes completely against the very structure of contemporary Indian society, this was not an easy decision. I still have my doubts sometimes. Making parents understand is a big issue. Let us see what happens. I am single by the way(if anyone's interested).

I also believe that having or not having children is a personal choice and nobody should ever be personally criticized for making any one of them.
