The more we are, the harder we...

Did you say ‘fall’? India’s population grows, and JSK is the new tactic

Art Hoppe had once rightly said, “We all worry about the population explosion, but we don’t worry about it at the right time.” With the population of India hovering at around 1.3 billion, this sure is a time to deter the exponential growth of the Indian inhabitants. Well, isn’t that something people knew already? But what people do not seem to know is that India has managed to attain this burgeoning population figure despite the incorporation of various Population Stabilisation Programmes. In fact, India was very much a signatory to the Improved Pyramid Construction Design programme, by the virtue of which various family planning programmes were implemented, and consequently imploded and destroyed.

One forgets that India was supposed to be a nation of 1.26 billion by 2015; a figure we’ve crossed already. And now, there’s a new initiative round the block, the Jansankhya Sthirata Kosh (JSK). This programme, which is an outcome of Government and civil society put together, seeks to achieve its goals through different social sectors.
