Deepankar Basu --
I sincerely doubt the code will run as written (e.g.
  while `j'<= `j' {
will produce an infinite loop) and it is not clear what you are trying
to do.  Hard to help in this case.  If you can put in [clear,
succinct] words what you are trying to accomplish, it would be easier
to help, and you might also be closer to a solution of your own

1. I want to first generate the following variables:

local i 1
while `i' <= 7 {  \\There are a maximum of 7 children in any family

 local j 1
 while `j'<= `j' {
  gen p`i'`j'=0
  local j= `j' + 1
local i = `i' + 1

local k = `nboy'
local i 1
forvalues i=1(1)`k' {
 replace p`dfsize'`k' = (0.5)^`alive'

I can do this step.
