Is it not enough already ???

There are many problems to say in the world if seen , the root of every problem is somewhere related to its vast population. The world is a very big place with a population of 6,234,250,234people that is always growing as quick as an eyelid’s beat.

Population is a cause of concern for many countries as increasing population demands for more resources and our planet is falling short of natural resources gradually.

“Almost half of the population of the world lives in rural regions and mostly in a state of poverty. Such inequalities in human development have been one of the primary reasons for unrest and, in some parts of the world, even violence”.

– A. P. J. Abdul Kalam

There are various reasons behind population explosion and illiteracy is one of them. Majority of population in India is illiterate and weaker sections of the society tend to have more children as they don’t have knowledge about the birth control. Also, poor and illiterate class indulges in early marriage which ultimately results in more population as the young children are unaware of the facts related to reproduction. The other main reason behind population growth is the decrease in mortality rate due to the advancement in science and technology. So all these factors contribute to population explosion and consequently exploit the environment and planet.

In 1987, the world’s population was 5 billion and as for today it is somewhere near 8 to 8.5 billion. Researches have shown that the population is expected to reach between 9 and 10.5 billion between the years 2040 and 2050, which is a lot for our earth to sustain .

Henceforth , to increase people's awareness on various population issues such as the importance of family planning, including gender equality, poverty, maternal health and human rights, world population day is celebrated .

World Population Day, which seeks to focus attention on the urgency and importance of population issues, was established by the then-Governing Council of the United Nations Development Programme in 1989, an outgrowth of the interest generated by the Day of Five Billion, which was observed on 11 July 1987. By resolution 45/216 of December 1990, the United Nations General Assembly decided to continue observing World Population Day to enhance awareness of population issues, including their relations to the environment and development.

World population day is celebrated at international level by organizing variety of activities and events to draw attention of mass people to work together on the issues of growing population.

So happy world population day to all , and lets get together to keep the population in control .
