Today is World Population Day and ironically there are billions of people who could come across this article. The world is gradually growing into a big global community where people are finally putting their differences aside and coming together. And we could not have been happier!
That said, no one can overlook the troubles posed due to the ever increasing population, especially in India. The key fact that everyone seems to be forgetting is that the resources of the Earth are limited! More the people, lesser the standard of living. Remember in school when the teacher used to say, “I’d rather teach 10 attentive students than a bunch of 50 and waste my time.” Well, the same applies here too. A planned and smaller family will be able to live much better than a big one with lesser resources.
#WorldPopulationDay is trending on Twitter as well, and we thought of showing you the best of tweets! Insights, memes and everything in between!
1. That’s a pertinent question.
Today, you neither have enough buses, land, toilets, temples or even a sufficient piece of sky for 1.3 billion people. The only thing we can do is – are we going to adjust our population to the resource that we have? #WorldPopulationDay https://t.co/R7Z76QqVVE

5. Leave the vinegar to the pickle.
50 years ago, family planning was declared a human right. Yet, 59M people still use traditional methods that are unreliable & may be unsafe. See some examples on Wednesday's #WorldPopulationDay: https://t.co/hWtNXMW6Uh pic.twitter.com/xFNPAnZtDE

8. True that.
If Common Education till 14 yr,UCC, Population Control Law is not implemented then 1947 will be repeated before 2047. Atleast think about our next Gen.#WorldPopulationDay

9. Only if the issue had more glitter.
Reminder on #WorldPopulationDay :Population is the mother of all problems in India.Poverty,unemployment,reservation,crime all are the byproducts of population.Still its the most ignored issue by politicians,writers,film makers.Because it lacks glamour&votes.

We hope people, especially politicians take up this issue seriously and implement suitable policies. After all, the aim is to live comfortably without squishing each other!
