Question: Population Control is the only solution to all our problems.

Outline of the Essay:
Facts & Figures
Controlling Measures

The greatest threat to human existence is their own lack of ability to control their own growth. Humans control the growth of every other species except their own.The sudden and rapid increase in the size of the population is called population explosion. After China India has the largest population. The present population of India is around 133 crores. It is equivalent to 17.84% of the total world population. It is expected that India will overtake China in population by 2022.

Factors responsible for abnormal growth of population:
India is a tropical country where girls attain puberty at an early age. The custom of early and child marriages, poverty, ignorance and illiteracy of the people, falling of death rate and steep rising of birth rate due to advanced medical facilities, ignorance and lack of conscious family planning, are the factors responsible for abnormal growth of population.

Consequences of population Explosion:
As the population increases the consumption of natural resource also increases. Housing, employment and comforts become scarce. Increase in water, air and soil pollution. Health is increasingly affected. Unemployment will be increased. The over fertile farm lands turn in to deserts. Fuel resources will decrease with increase in their use.

Controlling population explosion:
We have to improve the literacy rate, female education and the socio-economic status of families as population growth is indirectly linked to these factors. The government should also create awareness in public about ill effects of population explosion. Family Planning programme must be strictly implemented. Incentives must be offered to couples undergoing family planning. All efforts must be made to popularise methods of population control.
