Managing problem of population explosion in our country?
It is noted by all economists that grow of our country is tarnished due to ever increasing population in the country. One economist told me that the rate of growth does not match the rate of population growth. He further told me that, if population of India had become stagnant at year 1974 that means no further increase in population while economic growth continued at the same pace by 2013 India would have become one developed country.
During Congress raj several measures were tried to stop this dangerous growth in population however, not with much success. A study shows that there are several causes for that increase in population. However, as the educational level is improving we note that in some groups of communities having educated the population explosion is controlled. We notice that size of family and economic condition of that family are interrelated. When they control size of the family whatever income of the family, is good enough to feed and upkeep their family.
From this observation, we concluded that there are two types of men. Those who are aware of the fact, that they have to control his family to the size so that he can feed them. These men I call responsible citizens and those who go on adding to population without consideration of whether he can feed them or not, are called irresponsible citizens.
There are several reasons why they continue to add children whom they cannot feed. One is the age old concept of continuation of family line. There are those who go on trying to produce daughters until they get male child. Most people in this irresponsible category are from illiterate and extremely poor class. They produce children and put them on street so that these innocent children are beggars. Moreover, their irresponsible father is ever ready to produce next baby. In this case, we notice that mothers have no role to play since these irresponsible men actually rape their women to produce children whom they cannot look after. Women are actually other victims along with their children. Some irresponsible religious groups instigate these irresponsible men to continue to produce children as that increases the count of that religion population in the country. At the same time, these so-called religious groups do not want to feed those innocent children. Therefore, I consider these religious groups as irresponsible groups. Therefore, here we notice that we have irresponsible men and religious groups who cause increase in population of our country.
Our present day government is making plans to feed these innocent children out of tax money they forcibly collect from responsible citizens as mentioned in earlier part of this article. More and more taxes we have to pay out of our meager personal incomes. Since they are taxes, we have to pay them. In a way, responsible citizens are being exploited to feed unwanted progeny of these irresponsible citizens.
Erstwhile congress government had taken many measures to introduce various ways to control population but they could not become successful since the very aim of these irresponsible men is to produce children. I have noticed that in most cases they proudly tell that they have produced so many children.
This subject shall continue in the next post. Continue to read and if possible give you feedbacks so I may improve in this attempt to bring awareness in our people. This I say, because after careful study I found that most of our country's problems are related to this population explosion.
