Population Explosion : A real threat

Updated on February 8, 2014

Many other smaller nations of Asia have overtaken India in industrial and economic growth in the last fifty years.However,no one, not even china , can beat us in the population growth.we produce an Australia every year.This alarming rate of population growth is termed as 'Population-explosion'.We are a nation of 100 crore people.We have to feed 100 crore mouth and provide shelter, and clothes to them.However,population explosion makes nonsense of all our development programmes and planning.the Reasons for population explosion are many.better medical facilities and control over epidemics have made life safer and longer.Deaths by Disease,Famine and floods have been checked to the minimum.

A full proof and scientific campaign of family is the need of the hour.the central and state governments, the voluntary organizations should launch a vigorous campaign to educate the masses of the dangers of over-population.More births means more people.More people means more unemployment and more problems of food,shelter and clothing.we Must learn from China which has freezed its population growth adopting one family-one child programme.Those who produce more than two children should be heavily taxed,fined.They should be debarred from all social benefits,and from contesting elections for legislatures and the parliament.

      Well, a giant population is not a threat!

      Illiteracy and unskilled labor is indeed a threat.

      A large population can be driving force behind the technological expansion.

      Don`t forget history of USA.
