China, which has a population of over 1.3 billion, is facing a huge challenge brought about by the one-child norm. Figures from the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) showed that 8.5 percent of the population in 2009 is made up of people aged 65 and above. By 2030, that figure will climb to 17.5 percent.

The concern of population explosion and voluntary limiting of the size of the family is a desirous and worthy attribute of the majority religious people of India.
