The bomb of population is about to explode unless we adopt the norms of a small and planned family. Not only in India but also in the whole world..
Population explosion is the most serious problem facing our country today. With 16 per cent of the world’s population, India is toady the second largest populations’ country in the world.
One of the most serious problems that India faces today is the problem of over-population. Our population today is more than China. But more alarming and disconcerting than this figure is the fact that it is growing at the rate of 50 million per annum.
Throughout most of human history, the population remained small, so that births and deaths were roughly equal. Many died due to disease, famine and war. It is estimated that man in the Stone Age had an average life expectancy of only 17 years, while ancient Romans and Egyptians attained 30 years on the average.
Due to large-scale improvement and development in medical facilities, the average age of a person in the world has increased. In many countries including India, the death rate has decreased, but there is no fall in the birth rate.
