Why are cesarean rates rising in India?

In response to a recent article in The Economist, journalist Sriram Vadlamani has written a very interesting rebuttal titled, "Auspicious C-Sections in India? Not really".
I've just commented on his blog, but for brevity here, I would have to agree with Vadlamani that when it comes to discussing c-sections, "context is paramount".

I also think it's likely that, as is the similar case in China, when it comes to birth choices, "Astrology is a probable side-effect of this new found awareness and risk averseness".
