Q.

"INDIA HAS 16 PERCENT OF THE WORLD'S POPULATION, BUT ONLY 2.4 PERCENT OF ITS LAND, RESULTING IN GREAT PRESSURES ON ITS NATURAL RESOURCES."

Nothing to apprehend as we have substantial chunk of untapped resources; petroleum and products thereof; coal; iron ore; gypsum; gold ; water and power, etc. But the nagging problem is population explosion and disparity amongst the people, given the level of literacy & economy, et al.
