Hello friends, this is my first time to express my feeling on such a big platform. I hope my points would be considered. See population is the root cause of all problems we are facing today and instead of increasing we should decrease our population Ofcourse not by killing we can control this in 100-150 years for this span of the year it should be mandatory not to have more than one child it's very strict but is only solution otherwise it looks a big mass extinction is very near. Hope it does not hurt any of yours feeling I guess this is only way people keep on blaming science but science is helping to fulfil this increasing population demand if the population would be less then there would be no problem.

Educated people knows increasing about the population growth in our country. So each and every person will know about the growth of people. So we can control and prevent the increasing the growth of population.

One child policy is against human right. In a Democratic country like India, it is not possible to apply this policy.

Moreover, one child policy does not see the way substantial result in the growth rate of the economy. Indeed it may lead to a decline in the future growth rate.

I think increasing Population is the biggest challenge for India our population is inc day by day. There should be at least some.

Major steps which our gov. Should definitely take and these are as follows:

# Govt Should provide more and more jobs so that peoples in rural areas do not require many children to earn bread.

# Govt Should organize family planning camps and also try to aware them benefits of small family.

# Govt Should order medical shops that are in rural areas to sell contriseptic pills and other precautionary things at much lower prices to people.

# Govt Should also try to hold '' PANCHAYATS'' in rural areas and make people aware of equality of gender because.

This is also one of the biggest cause of inc. Population i.e. "BOY" they continuously give births to children until they.

Get a son.

# Govt Should also provide some special benefits to people who have one or only two children. This will encourage.

Others also to reproduce less.

# Govt Should also take strict actions against early marriages in rural areas.

# Govt Should make it compulsory for those people who have two children '' STERILIZATION '' for man or woman any.

One from the couple.

# Govt Should also encourage more and more in urban areas to ''ADOPT A CHILD '' rather than reproduce, and provide these couple some extra benefits.

These are some of the major actions/ steps that must govt of India should take if they seriously want to get INDIA rid of this big problem.

In my opinion, some solution to this problem may be adopted like educating the people whether small or adult especially the children and subject like health education must be introduced so that they would aware about the concept of family planning and sex education. They must know that value of small family and disadvantages of a large one. As for government, they should follow the policy of foreign countries like those individuals have more than one or two children he/she cannot get any job in public/government sector, and I think this should be the best way to control high birth rate in our country.

One child policy was a policy introduced in 1979 to control population of China. China also claimed that it was successful in implementing the policy. India being the 2nd most populous country in the world should also adopt these methods to see growth rate in the economy. The china has seen the growth rate by implementing this policy.

Also if there is more population than more consumption of natural resources and there is limited resources so we should conserve natural resources by implementing one child policy.

Now a day pollution become one of the biggest issue which is the result of more population, if there will less population than there will less pollution which is coming out from vehicles as a result people's will more healthy. One can think that Vehicles pollution can be controlled by using CNG but CNG is not available in bulk mass so there is no option other than decreasing population.

At last I would like to say that one day must come when Indian government must have to implement one child policy so, it is better to implement as soon as possible so that this generation can come out of home without wearing mask.

Myself Ankit.

As we know China is the most populous country In the world while India in on the second position. It is a burning issue for India. So, it has taken the form of overpopulation. So, it has become explosion for India. Now one question is arise in my mind, what is the population?

The number of people who live in fixed geographical area is cooled population. Now one question is another striking my mind is population explosion for India?

No, the population is not explosion for any state or country but over population is problem for any state or country

Now I am going to talk about the reason of increasing population,

There are so many reasons but mainly two reasons.

1) Big gap between birth rate and death rate.
2) migration.

As we know today India birth rate in approx 22 and death rate is approx 6, so there is a gap between 16. We could control the death rate by the invention of medical science, stopping wars, proper nutrition, and sanitation but we could not control birth rate due to many reasons like as,

- Lake of education
- Child marriage
- Poverty
- Religion and tradition
- Status of women is low
- Lack of government policy

Migration: Immigration is a problem in some parts of the world. If the inhabitants of various countries migrate to a particular part of the world and settle over there, the area is bound to suffer from the ill effects of overpopulation. If the rates of Immigration from a certain nation do not match the rates of immigration to that country, overpopulation makes its way. The country becomes overly populated. Crowding of immigrants in certain parts of the world results in an imbalance in the density of population.

I think to control populations govt should adopt a policy of one child only it doesn't matter its a boy or a girl. By 2021 India will be very near to china in comparison of population. Friends we say why India is still the developing country. The main reason is populations. If we control our populations then.

By 2050 India populations can be declined and it will reach below African countries. If this happen then by any mean India will sure become developed country by 2050 whereas in case of china they will remain the most populated country in the world till 2040 and will also be declined below African countries.

In India up, Maharashtra, Bihar and many other states where populations is increasing tremendously, over there govt should take serious action regarding this issue and should adopt one child policy. Not more than one. If twins then it can be ignored. But more than one.

The main reason of increasing population is illiteracy, unwanted sex, poverty, unemployment etc. The government have to give education about this problems. Especially poor peoples, the feel that producing more kids can remove their poverty. The feel that more child can earn more money, and some enjoy sex but not safely.

They don't use condoms, and produce unwanted kids. Some times peoples sold the kid to other people for child trafficking like child labour, servants in home of other, workers in the hotels and restaurant.

Firstly we should take help of NGO and many kind of social worker.

I agree with most of the views shared. As per the existing growth trend, India's population will stabilize by 2050. Already, India is home to most of the poor of the world besides Sub Saharan Africa. Our cities are becoming slums. Water bodies are contaminated making drinking water scarcity. Other issues like food, school education, transport, medical care all are adversely strained due to population explosion.

Irrespective of such visible consequences, any deeply concerted effort has not been taken so far. Population growth rate has been declining at a natural slow pace based on the upliftment of education level in generations. I believe there lies an immense potential, if we follow seriously a following multi-pronged outcome driven approach:

1) Besides enhancing reach of basic education, there is a need to impart adult education so that people enjoy their sex lives without increasing population.

2) Birth rate need to be contained particularly in rural areas of developing states, and for this, there is a need to arrest the infant/child deaths so that people feel secure after having single child.

3) People in rural areas need to be actively engaged in debate and implementation of family planning policies.

4) Government should provide lucrative incentives to families having single child.

5) District Officers should be provided target to contain population and on achievements they should be publicly recognized/awarded.

6) Media should come foreword by showing good & bad examples/cases and its consequences.

Man is selfish and masochistic in this country with a child and without any means to support the child, leave alone the growth of the child but also the basic necessities are a distant dream.

Hi myself Ajit.

Population is the number of occupants in a particular place. In India it is becoming a major problem. India is now second highest Populated country In the country but if population growth would not reduced than in 2030 it will become the most populated country.

The major problems arises due to overpopulation is lack of resources, poverty, unemployment and many more. In my opinion Education is the most imp way to prevent overpopulation. People should know the consequences of over population. Government should start some programmes or lectures on overpopulation to awake the generation specially in rural areas. They should be provided free contraceptive helps.

Hi friends, population control is not a one day project by a single hand. We are sitting in a chair in pool which water level is increasing. Is it safe! Someone in high level and someone low level height chair but the water surly sink everyone of us. The effect of population growth already affected low class people, increasing price of products like milk, bus ticket, land rate, fuel and more. They are lacking of education. Okay these are effect of population.

How to control this?

Education is main root, government should include the affects of population in the textbooks of school and colleges. And make some special camp for every 3 months for family planning. And we should be strongly act mature. The rate of population growth of India is 1.9 per annum where china is 0.93 per annum. India will be in no. 1 in population by 2030.

Good afternoon friends, This is B. Tarakeswara Rao. I would have to talk about population.

What is a population. Population is all the inhabitants present in particular place. We are all know India is a developing country and the growth is steady and stable. Along with India facing so many problems. In those one is population. Population explosion is due to lack of awareness in the people. In case of this growth in population we have some advantages and some more disadvantages. Coming to advantages with increase in population.

1) Availability of labour is high.
2) We get high skilled labour.
3) In war situation the country will the large people will get upper hand.

Coming to disadvantages:.

1) Lack of resources like land, oil and food Etc.
2) Lack of unemployment.

Following measures should be sought to control the population in our country:

1. Measures to increase Per-capita Income.
2. Urbanization and Industrialization.
3. Late Marriage.
4. Lowering Infant Mortality Rate.
5. Spread of Education.
6. Women education and employment.
7. Family Planning Facilities.
8. Incentives.

10. Legislation.

The pace of population growth in India has reduced to certain extent in the last decade as compared to other decades. Now in 2014 in India maximum parents has an average of 2 children but in 1970 it was 4. It means that ppl are more getting education about sex and birth control. So education is the only way to get rid of this problem. I think that the cities, towns are on the right track but the village should come in the limelight. They need more education to eradicate this problem.

In my opinion increasing population is a major problem in India. Due to it we can see many problems such as unemployment, lack of medical facilities etc. This increasing population should be reduced. The government has to play a major role to do this. It can be done conducting by some awareness programs and making aware to the people about the impacts of increase in population, implementing schemes like family planning, one child motto or two etc. And also every citizen should be a part of this awareness programs in educating the people about the population increasing. Some of these steps can be useful in reducing the population to some extent.

Hi guys,

India is like China, with a rapid increase in population. If its population increases, so does its economy, as there will be cheap labour, which will attract investors to come and start businesses. And when its economy increases, more and more people become more rich and educated, then India will become a more economically developed country, and then its people will start to have less babies, as they will work more, then the population will decrease. Don't you see? Its just a cycle going round and round.

Hi, I am Pankaj Sharma and want to share my views on increasing population. As we know our population goes increasing every day, only make a concerns about it but not seems its positive effects on controlling. Because simple only concerning is not the solution of any problems. For controlling this problem first we should define the role of government and common people like NGO or other awareness institutions which is involved in this directly or partially. We should take our responsibility with seriousness and also defined its output in reference to time.

We should in increase our speed for working and checked its output if we not found positive responds then change its matter and made necessary improvements. By which we also can check its response. Government should promote one hand those family follow family planning by rewarding some reservation for limited time and give some attractive facilities in every governmental field and other hand band those people who should not follow law of family planning and on that cases government should follow strictly and quickly. Without taking some hard and strict steps, birth controlling in India is not possible. So please.

People should be made aware that if no actions are taken in time, the situation would be out of control and it would raise other problems like unemployment, poverty, thefts, robbery, starvation etc.

Hi friends,

I have written essay letter regarding "Increasing of population and it's disadvantages" in my 10th class around 22 Years ago. Till now there won't be much difference in this front. Those days also I have seen TV advertisement regarding population control. Plans are there for population control, but where we have failed is at implementation level. Our government is so negligence they haven't take any strong action against that. Government should give good benefits to those families who are following family planning. For them we should provide free education, some cash benefits and free hospitalization etc and the same should be advertised frequently in our cities and villages. So that people will feel what advantages we get if we control our family.

Today if you go to railway station or bus stand or any mall or market or even hospital every where you feel very difficult to get into only because large crowed. If I go to the temple I could not even pray for 5 minutes then what is the point to go to the temple by so many hours in standing in the long queue. Here we can't blame to any one except ourselves and our week systems. So, here we should not blame to the government only, we should blame ourselves also for creating such a large populated country 130 crores +.

India is among the most populous nations of the world and according to the recent research India will become the most populated country leaving behind China by 2030. Dealing with the rising population of the country has become a major issue to deal with. According to me, the population of the country can be controlled by creating awareness among the people of the country especially those living in the backward areas. The benefits of having small families, sex education among the people, camps and meetings concerning the rising population issue, and many more.

Also, according to me, the government should provide a kind of compensation for those couples who plan for a single child or who adopt orphan children. In Fact looking at the current growing population, government should make strict laws so that population can be controlled to an extent.

I am talking from my perspective, not being an Indian citizens. I am from Norway. I hope you can see it from my side please.

Do we not want to live in a world where everyone gets their needs and supplies for their families? having a life is something every soul should be able to experience. We have all seen poor people who does not have jobs, or so because they did not have money for education. Think about others for once! When you were a child you went to school and university and got a manageable job that supplies for you and your family. Those children being born today on the street in India, with a sick parent. What choice do they have? NON! Was it their fault that their mother was sexual abused and got pregnant? NO. Now imagine this child. How can the child go to school, where he/she has to get money to go to, without even having money. This child lives in a country or society that does not care about this one child. The government can not keep track on every citizens. They can't care about this child, because they don't know she/he exist! There are so many kids that are not noticed by the government because they are less worthy and poor living on the street. Some kids might be forced to ask for money on the street. Who do they get forced to do this by? Who is standing behind the wall and taking the money the kids earn right out of their hands?

All this! Has to do with the country not having control over all its people. The country is too small itself to keep as many people in it. The Planet Earth is not capable to have overpopulation. It is of course not just India having this problem, but since we are discussing India's population issue. There is a clear problem I would say, and anyone can see that somehow. I think that for the people who are poor and living on the street, think of how much better their live would be if they wouldn't have to live there. The country's population is increasing more and more. The positive impact of India is that they will get a bigger military and become the greatest country in the world. If this is what India wants then they are going in a positive direction for themselves. Though where do they get their military service from? The younger adults and kids on the street. Those mums who did not have money to serve the children she has. The children have to start working from very young ages. Most people reading this now, has someplace to live, money to care for them. When the population increases more and more, believe how many people there would be walking around. Do they have a place to live? There is known that the villages in India are to be the biggest problem. Are they the problem? If you compare them to the big cities in India, what is the difference? Big!

I just want to create a bigger awareness of what big impact the population growth have on India. It is not all negative believe me, but there are major consequences that will come! Hope you think about it, and place yourself in this one child situation born on the street.

Hello my dear friends,

First of all I would like to ask a question, 'does anybody studied about any civilization which was destroyed by its increasing population?' Actually all the civilizations, which were well developed, were destroyed by their decreasing population. So increasing population considered as a problem itself a big problem. You can't blame population over mismanagement of services.

You can consider beggars which are useless, otherwise every person gives service to the nation. 20 years ago Singapore was not a well developed country, because of their low population. But now its a well developed country. Actually their prosperity increased with their population. Now their population density is more than India.

Another fact is the population of a country is increased up to only that level, to which the natural as well as artificial resources of that country allow. If the population crosses that limit the nature itself balances it. So we should not worry about our increasing population instead of it we should be proud of our population because:

Majority of the people on this group are firm believers of the fact that our population is indeed one of the biggest threat that our nation is facing. With advances in health care and technology, we certainly have won the battle against infant mortality and many other ailments, but on the other side, we have failed miserably in checking the birth rate. And so now, we are adding Australia (in terms of population) every year.

Also, unlike China, where the one child policy has been implemented properly with proper follow up, it is impossible to implement the same as India consists of a large number of religions and being a democratic country, it has to take under consideration the interests of all the different religions and groups. So, in my opinion, we only have one option left, i.e. creating awareness. That is the only possible, viable solution to this problem. Big companies and industries can include awareness programs about the family planning in their CSR activities. Also, govt should make people aware about the same through different broadcasting mediums and I am sure that just like the case of polio, Govt can do wonders in this arena too.

Hi guys, This is Ali, In my opinion Increasing population is one of the burning issues of India, There are several factors that help us to control the population but education is the leading factor that could help us to guide the general public about the importance family planning which creates an awareness among all the people.

In fact government also taking all possible steps to have a control on population but I strongly believe that this is the responsibility on every citizen of India to take steps to control our population. Perhaps science and Technology also plays a crucial role in increasing the population, Advanced research on human and highly advanced machinery leads to save the life that result decline in death rate but this technology is not working at the birth decline.

I don't say that population is really a curse. It is actually a boon as well as an asset for our country.

We people can't force anyone to control population. It is their personal wish to have 1 or 3 children.

Since our country is a developing country we don't have much facilities to accommodate such a big crowd. So if our country becomes a developed one, then it's sure that our country can handle such a big crowd.

For that we have to utilize our brain like Americans and other western countries.

Prevent brain drain and serve for our country.

Hello friends good morning. I am Sirisha Now the topic is regarding the ever increasing population In my opinion, Education plays an important role to make a family planning but don't kill the small children who were taking birth by differentiating as boys and girls. If the family is poor also they should provide education for each and every one. So, Government should educate.

Hello good morning my dear friends, according to my opinion the government had done something to reduce the population but it could not actually succeed. So, I think we should implement certain laws and benefits for the people who has one child or else two.

And only implementing certain rules could not only reduce the population we should make people aware about the disadvantages of overpopulation. We should go in a groups to villages and organize awareness camps though which we can gradually reduce the population.

And excluding that we should make proper use of population (manpower). We should make use of each and every individual to improve our country's economy through which increasing population gets an advantageous issue to our country.

We must make every person to get a minimum level of education so that it could help to increase our country's economy and also reduce the population as due to proper education they get to know the disadvantages over the increase in population.

So I finally conclude that people must be made aware about the issue to promote reduce in population.

In my view really the government had taken all the necessary steps to get rid away from this problem. People has to overcome about this. Even all the rules came in to the concern the people are not following them. This is because of illiteracy and uneducated people in villages and rural areas. They don't know the problem which govt is facing when the population is increasing, they just think about their convenience and their family background.

Some people with large families even from educated background, will allows their children to do the same thing and give birth to many children to fulfill their views and things. This is still going on. Mostly this people will also be educated but even though they won't follow. Because the rules which came in to concern are not strictly maintained and they won't bother even. Its not the whole problem was because of villagers even the same with educated. It should come from heart and soul that we should follow some rules to make our nation to live freely and conveniently.

But no one is correct in this world. Until this remains we won't reach the place like other countries are reaching. In our country all the PEOPLE are selfish about their beings not about the govt and about the rules and regulations, their no difference between educated and uneducated.

Population explosion is severe problem of our country. India secured 2 nd rank in population list.

Population increase leads to unemployment, Poverty, decrease in nonrenewable resource, decreasing GDP, Low per capita income etc.

The root cause of the issue is illiteracy. Village or poor people still think that they will have more children, children will support them when they will become young and more children means more money. They also feel that If they have more children, people will afraid from them and they will not mess or screw up their life.

In order to overcome ever increasing population issue, following measure must be undertaken:.

1). Policy of two kids must be taken seriously. Serious or legal action should be taken against those who violate the rules. The one who abide the rule must be charged 40 % income tax.

Flexibility should not be supported event for people who earned enough regarding producing more people only because they are able to bear up. Population control should be responsibility of each individual then only we can have control over it.

2). Government should organize or conduct more awareness program specially for people in village to make them understand about the disadvantage and effect of population explosion issue. We or govt should take Stringent action over illiteracy. Government should work towards better education system so that at least basic education should be provided to everyone in the country.

3). Awareness regarding family planning should be created among people with the help of media.

4). Contraceptive measure should be explain through different ads or advertisement in the tv or radio etc with the help of doctors or popular personality like Amitabh bachchan. We all know that he pulse polio advertisement by amitabh created history and we can expect the same again.

What I think that its high time we must take some concrete steps to curb thus grave problem.

'Hum do hamare do' policy should be made compulsory for each and every couple other pay tax and this rule must be more strictly followed in rural areas.

For anything, there is no need to suffering of woman. It has to be enforced rule on the part of man first.

Indian families always give importance to a child soon after their marriage partners. It is from the beginning until now practiced as custom rule to be followed. It must be eliminated from the viewpoint of Individual awareness. The child desire should be from marrying partners own concession. Just living and doing birth for society and others desire should be broken out. Though we live in techno society the impact of old usages and practices without self thinking prevails.

Population explosion is the severe problem of our nation which is leading us towards inflation, poverty, low per capita income, decreasing gdp etc.

In order to overcome ever increasing population following measures should be undertaken:

1). Firstly the policy of two kids must be taken seriously one who abides that rule should be charged 40% income tax.

2). People instead of having their own kid, should adopt orphans this would help decrease their ratio.

And so we can faint poverty upto a certain extent.

3). Government should give permit to abortion cause neither the man nor the women wants the kid at that time.

Forcefully giving birth to the child spoils the child's life as he was not wanted and spoils the women's and men's life as he is held responsible for destroying three lives at a time.

If following things are adopted then sure we. Can decrease our population resources will be enough and demand will be rational.

The topic is what shall we do about our ever increasing population. So I would first like to focus on some of the problem that arises due to the vast population. Large population means large resource consumption, more illiteracy, more unemployment, more congestion, more diversity, and most importantly these factors will lead to higher inflation as the gap between demand and supply will be increased. More demand and less supply. So it must be controlled. However population can not be controlled by the government only.

It must be brought to the knowledge of common people especially rural. So more awareness campaign need to be done in order to stop this fast growing population. But only campaigning is not going to help. Unless the people get the education they will not be able to understand the side effects of large population. So ultimately government need to do the arrangement for the education of the people so that at least the basic education must be gained by everyone. I know that there are various programs run by government to give free education to the people but it needs to be implemented correctly otherwise we will surly going to beat China in the population in next few years.

These are a few hard suggestions for population control.

1. Make it illegal to marry without a Licence, only people who are more than say 24-26 years of age and earning enough to support a family should be allowed to marry.

2. Make it illegal to have children without getting a Licence first. The people on welfare ie. Public distribution system and needing assistance from the government should not be allowed to have children.

3. No one should be allowed to have more than one child. There should be a mandatory vasectomy after one child.

4. All people who are not even able to earn enough to feed themselves should be forcibly vasectomized to prevent them from having children and contributing to population growth. That would be all the beggars, inhabitants of slum clusters and like.

The population control can only be achieved through strict measures and not through mere slogans.

Government should take steps to control population.

I read all of your's comment but don't ya'all think that ya'all are speaking the same thing that the population due to illiteracy and villagers ideology and bla bla. But for a second thing about the ranking off most populated countries. I mean India is second most populous country and if all the people think that is the main obstacle for development of India than what about china.

If we had to judge a countries development scale on the basis of the population than china should have been the least developed country in Asia but on contrary it is the most developed country in Asia instead of its high population. It is only because of efficiency of the government, its ruling ability and plan execution that develops a country.

The population may have effected the development scale but the main reason is corruption not population. In-fact population can also be treated as an asset for it makes the competition tougher and brings out the best. So, population is definitely a bane but not to the development, it has only been degraded due to inefficacy of the government in India.

Literate states are more likely to have a efficient tab on population with also states with households owning a TV as per studies conducted. By TV its not a house having a TV will have lesser children but can be aware of various initiatives by the government for population control. Actually, the truth is that the south Indian states have already reached the replacement rate. The two major states of UP and bihar contribute largely to population rise.

I don't quite understand what's taking the Indian government to educate and implement a more comprehensive birth control programme in these states? I believe that corrupt governments want these states to remain in poverty primarily fueled by population so that more money can be effectively looted. With absolutely no educated population the problem of accountability also does not arise since the population of these states are not aware of what's actually been done to them.

The Government of India has taken many important steps to control the population so that it does not result to "POPULATION EXPLOSION" and has succeeded to an extent but not to the expectations.

Govt should work on effective education system like cash transfer scheme type of policy that will provide education to those who needy aspirant.

To control population first they create awareness among rural areas as we all know that illiteracy ratio is more in rural areas rather than urban. To do advertising campaign in harts mela or through wall advertisement and education model should be prepared for them.

Those who have less than 3 children will provide more subsidy as compared to other.

Hi, friends :.

I think that the biggest reason behind the so much population of India is poverty and illetrecy. Because poor people thought if they will have more children then their children will support them when they will become young because more children will earn more. And due to illetercy the village person thought if they have more children then everyone will affraid from them and no one will take mess from them.

And other reason is marriage in childhood because in India many person get marry in their childhood so obviously they will have more children. So our government should make such type of rule such that no one can get married before 25-30 years and no one can have more than two children. Then we will be able to control the population.

In order to curb the ever increasing population we need to encourage literacy so that people get to know the cons of increasing population. Government has a big role to play by spreading the word.

Two in every three in this discussion attributed the rise in population to the lack of awareness among the uneducated/villagers. One of them opined that rich can have three or more children, as they have money or resources to bring them up.

But, by saying this are we not forgetting the importance of saving 'Resources'. Be it for the present generation or for the future generation. If every rich person thinks the same way and go for three or more children, then do you really think the population can be controlled? The catch here is the rise in standard of living. Don't you guys think everyone now can be able to raise two or more children at ease?

Hi, friends as we all know that the population of our country is increasing day by day. So, the people's attitude towards marriage, family size and child birth must change before we can hope to achieve a substantial decline in the birth rate. According to 2001 census, the total population of Andhra pradesh was nearly 7,50,000.

Broadly speaking, there are three general and main causes for increase in the population of a country.

-> High birth rate.
-> Relatively lower death rate.
-> Immigration.

Population explosion is one of the obstacles for the development of the economy. So, the government has to take remedial measures to decrease the population explosion like removal of poverty poor people have virtually no interest in limiting the size of their families. Living in poor conditions they are habitual to laziness so, they are depending on their children earnings if they have more children they can earn more.

So the attitude of the people towards the population must change. People should have more knowledge about family planing. And another thing is the education also brings down the population.

Population explosion is a big hindrance in the pathway of development for countries like India where most stereoscopic rural people don't comprehend the worth of education and sustainable development. For some woman is merely a child producing country.

We have already exploited the nature and its resources to a great extent its a high time to concern that nature has its own system of recovery. Also it obstructs economic development. Poor people consider children as a supplement to their meager income. Govt large resources which would have been utilized for scientific enhancement are diverted to satisfy the needs of such people through various policies.

@miss pauly.

I am totally disagreed with your opinion which says there is nothing wrong in having more children if one have enough money to bear them up with better quality. We are trying to control population so that every living individual should live in a good social and economical atmosphere. No matter how much money they have. There children will take his share of resources. So being capable of bearing up can't be seen as a reason that they don't have any responsibility in controlling population.

I believe that increasing population of India is surely a grave problem and it needs attention but not by implementing laws that force people to go for one child, after all its a free democratic country and people should have the freedom of deciding their way of life. If a wealthy person can afford to educate and provide for 3 kids whats wrong with him having 3 ? the fundamental solution is to educate people about birth control methods and provide special govt privileges to people with one child. Not by punishing people who have more than 1. Also government should take care to avoid child marriages and educate people about art of life. Abortion should not be encouraged as each and every human life is a gift of god and deserves to live. So prevention is better than cure. And it should be by free will just like Australia and Canada and not by imposing it upon the citizens harshly like China.

Hi friends, I would like to add some more points to our discussion. Some of our friends have suggested for one child policy to be implemented in India. But don't you think the mental health of that child will be effected a lot? He/she might be feeling alone and might not be able to share emotions or feelings with anyone. So I think that two children in a family is a better idea than having a single child. Secondly when we talk about food crisis, can't we use latest technologies or invent some new techniques to increase our production of crops? Earlier farmers used to grow one crop in a field now they are able to grow two or more crops in a single field which signifies the efficient use of the land and also increase in food. Thirdly I would like to add a point regarding creating awareness among the people especially the illiterate people. The awareness should be in such a way that people are made narrow minded so that the gender bias is eliminated and even the policies of government could be implemented effectively.

Population explosion is the biggest problem mankind is facing today. All the other social and economical problems are directly related to increasing population. Population explosion is the biggest problem mankind is facing today. All the other social and economical problems are directly related to increasing population. Main reason of increasing population in our country is illiteracy. There is no awareness among the people of our country. What we can do to stop increase population.

1. Government must start a awareness programme in villages to reduce population.

2. Provide facilities like food, medical, education at low cost to only those families in which there are 1-2 children. Those who has more than 2 children are dismissed from the scheme.

3. Provide a education specially to girl children.

4. Government should take a help of teachers & other government employees to spread a awareness.

5. Road shows. Banners, skits, advertisement on radio, on television with the help of popular person (like icon for plus polio is mr. Amitabh bacchan) that advertisement create history we are now polio free country, may same we can experience in the case of population.
