Why are we nowadays silent on population explosion?If some reports are any indication, we will soon become the most populous nation in the world, and beat China.
Of course, we can't seemingly beat that nation in anything else. Look at the manner in which they seem to be giving importance to education and research and development. Our super-fast trains, do not even touch 160 km per hour. They have trains that run in excess of three hundred kilometers per hour.
That part of China which is capitalist is now the manufacturing center for the whole world. In our country, we seem to be only agreeing to disagree on so many issues.
For almost two decades now, the population problem has never been addressed. We still assume that a huge middle class will only add value to our economy. But when the global economy slows down, when robots will be seen everywhere, a huge population will be a big minus.
How do we re-kindle the debate on the population boom?
