We caught up with Harjit Sarang and here’s what she had to say!
I am a fertility and surrogacy lawyer. I set up my fertility practice 5 years ago after a long fertility journey. I wanted to do something meaningful and divorce law was definitely not that! Infertility is not discussed enough in Asian families and we need to change that. try to speak about fertility and homosexuality issues wherever possible in the Asian media. My passion is doing whatever I can for infertile and homosexual individuals. I feel lucky that my passion is also a living for me. I chase solutions for people who need solutions. I do much pro bono work because it just feels right. Soul food.
Ultimately I believe in divine compensation. I remain disappointed that homosexuality is still taboo in our culture but I know that will change. Whenever I meet an Asian person I tell them that I help gay and lesbian people have children. How’s that for a conversation opener! It plants a seed and that’s my intention.
What inspires you?
I am inspired by knowing that we are in complete control of our lives. People who are drivers and not passengers inspire me. People who live life to the fullest inspire me. What happens to me in my life is MY decision. I nearly lost my life and that was a wakeup call.
I recently read this by Michael Singer ‘A guy was dying and he pleaded to God “give me 7 more days”. God replied “I’ve given you 43 years what did you do with them?!” – to me that speaks volumes about how we just cruise through life waiting for things to happen instead of being in the driving seat and creating.
