In a country where women bear the brunt of family planning responsibilities through tubectomy, women specializing in NSV are a rare breed. Dr Kaur has shown that with tenacity and a good, clean procedure, it is possible to buck the trend. A national and state trainer of trainers on NSV, she has done over one lakh NSV procedures. In her home town, Amritsar, 45 per cent of the sterilizations are of men and to a large extent the credit goes to her. She is also the national and state level trainer for tubectomy, IUD and emergency contraception but quite clearly her passion is NSV because, she maintains, it is the safest, quickest, cheapest and most painless procedure. NSV is a brand name, she announces.
