Story: India as most populated country in the world; 01-07-2023;
Humans living on Earth has officially surpassed some 8 billion or, 8000000000 (800 crore.) The human population on earth has been rapidly growing, it has been doubled since the 1970s when it was around almost 4 billion people, and till the end of the 70s decade it almost reached a billion count.
India has great potential, being the most populated in the world.
It has its major population in their 20-50, which is about 44.7% of the total population. This age group is the largest in India, and it is expected to continue to grow in the coming years
. The population of India is projected to reach 1.6 billion by 2050, and the age group of 20-50 is expected to make up about 47.5% of the total population.
While older generation are fewer, accounting for the third largest population group in the country, after the age group of 15-24 and the age group of 25-40.
As of 2023, the population of India between the ages of 50 and 90 is about 228.1 million people, which is about 15.7% of the total population.
This makes India a place with more intelligent minds, more capable work force, easily available cheap labour place in the world.
This makes India a big market in every expect, be it tech consumer base, food, infrastructure, the list goes on.
• In the next 50+ years, we've grown the double of the previous growth of more than 173 years combined, in terms of population growth. We hit the 1 billion population count in 1804, as of records.
• The United Nations has said, warning of more hardship in store for regions already facing resource scarcity because of climate change.
• Reaching eight billion people is “a sign of human success, but it’s also a great risk for our future,” said John Wilmoth, the director of the UN’s population division.
• Middle-income countries, mainly in Asia, accounted for most of that growth, gaining some 700 million people since 2011.
• The global population has increased eight-fold since 1800, from an estimated one billion to eight billion, largely due to the development of modern medicine and the industrialisation of agriculture, which boosted global food supplies.
• China saw a steady decline in the birth rate as a result of the strict child policies, while India added about 180 million people and is now the world’s most populous nation.
• India does not have any policy that limits the birth rate, and that's a good thing, let's learn how?
• The Policy to limit birth rate of the country backfired on China, and it seems to be a bad experiment.
• While some Indians argue that there must be a childbirth control policy in the country, but the results from neighbour China aren't motivational or positive, those who defend such policies, should take notes off of it.
• China is facing the problem of less young generation, and more old people in the country. It faces hardship to remain as a good place for finding cheap work force. Older people tend to work lesser and slower in comparison to younger people.
• Less young people in a country results in slow economy, and declining population posess threats like mental stress (as few young man-women has to take care of the more old people, meaning more stress, work load etc).
• Lesser population results in more competition when in comes to finding a life partner, or in simple terms getting married, because, more people choose boy over a girl as their only 1 children (option), then this takes us to a ratio of fewer girls as compared to boys, this then creates issues like mental pressure, depression and what not.
• China was forced last year to change its children policy, and increased the amount of children a couple could have, from 1 to 3, it urged families to have a second and even third child. Also it limited access to non-medical abortions.
• On the other hand, other countries have seen the rapid decline as well in the birth rate, like the United States, European countries, and Japan.
