Q.

When will Indians acknowledge the fact that the problems of India are not on account of governance or political apathy but on account of Indias gargantum population growth? No amount of growth and infusion of funds can solve the problems in any way unless the population stops increasing. And the Indian public is to be squarely blamed for the population growth.

You are right. The constant growth of demand nullifies whatever progress we make. But you have to blame the Indian public or Nature, which has made them so fertile. Afterall people of other countries are no less when it comes to conjugal enjoyments

Why u blaming population ??? ?? ?

Our country has carrying capacity to accommodate 2 billion more if u go by UN bare minimum standards, a billion more if u go by UN world average, or at least 500 million more if u go by UN "Second world" requirements. IF u look @ our land fertility, we have nowhere reached our carrying capacity.

The problem in India is that since money & resources are disproportionately poured into a handful of cities, what u have is a HUGE influx of people from all over cramming into them. OBVIOUSLY ur cities will bear an overcrowded look. If money & resources were disbursed more rationally & more proportionally, u won't have such a mad rush of ppl getting into cities.

Even if u took out 200 million Indians in an atomic bomb today, our nation will still have a crowded look. There are states like AP, Orissa, MP etc where u can go for miles & miles even w/o seeing a soul, so the problem is obviously not carrying capacity but the demographic trends in INdia. D ...more

You're right. The Indian Public is to be squarely blamed for electing people who only fill their coffers instead of developing the country and marching forward. Nothing more nothing less.

I disagree that we must blame the Indian public for the population growth. All living things begin to multiply and increase in number when they fear for their survival. Fear of extinction and insecurity is one of the biggest causes for population growth. India is a country riddled with poverty, where people do not get two square meals. Invasion by foreign invaders brought about this condition. Their exploitation for several centuries, their oppression, and more than thousand years of captivity pushed the country more into poverty. It is only recently the country has gained its Independence. Instead of enjoying their newfound freedom, their own compatriots began exploiting them. Public elected wrong people to rule the country and they began filling their own coffers. The country began playing a secondary role to country like Russia and they added to our miseries. Instead of becoming an agriculture-oriented nation, it went for production in a big way. According to Parkinson's Law, consum ...more

But what is the remedy then.. all the stake holders are trying hard to educate the people about negative effects of population growth... and don't you think there should be a balanced growth of population too... I believe bigger is the problem of creating right kind of distribution channels where the resources and funds can be channelised so that they can reach the last person without much transmission loss. If we are able to do that most of the deprived people would get necessaities of life... and it was the consumption power of our population only which has kept us floating in this recession times...let us convert our population into a resouce and asset rather than a liability...
