Today I was thinking about the growing population in India. Unlike China, India does not have huge land area and if we are really looking at the next 50 years and trying to compete with China in the international arena, how tough is it going to be for India with such growing population. Then I started to look at the population density of India and other countries. India is ranked 20th highest in population density. Singapore, South Korea, Netherlands, Belgium and Japan are few big guys ahead us(for now). I think it's time India start to seriously implement some population control measures. Otherwise, down the road, 50 years from now, we may be in trouble, unless Pakistan, Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Nepal all unite with India and form the old Akhand Maha Bharat.
