Population Boom

Population Boom



We all know about the Spain train crash which kills about 80 people on Wednesday through media reports,this incident ignited another thought in me about our country. This Spanish train was carrying only 247 people in its peak time i.e for the pilgrimage destination Santiago de Compostela which is a very rare situation for such pilgrimage in India.

During festive seasons for Chatt Puja in Bihar or for Kumbh Mela in Allahabad our train runs with out of capacity passengers which carry thousands sitting inside as well as outside on top of the trains.A train carrying only 247 passengers may appear a joke for us because we see much more people only in a single carriage of a train. This is not because we have very few trains,our railway system is one of the biggest in the world but the problem lies in the fact that we are second most populated country in the world.

Our population is increasing rapidly and soon we will overtake China to be the most populated country in the world. With ever increasing population all arrangements becomes short,our resources are burdened with over population. We are now short of land,water and other such basic necessities of life due to which we excessively use our natural resources disturbing our flora and fauna without giving a thought for the future. Ever increasing population is burden for the nation and hindrance in our development. This is the reason that we have so many people die out of hunger,youth is unemployed,literacy rate is below average,malnutrition and many other problems.

There is a need to create awareness about this problem among the masses,programmes run by government to control population boom should be implemented more strictly and to the villages of India. With population increases hands with hands increases demands and when demand crosses the thresh hold system collapses. The slogan of "we two our two" of eighties and nineties should now be changed to "we two our one".

  1. Increase in population doesn't commensurate with the resources we have. Something needs to be done to control the mushroom of population before it's too late.

  2. The only solution to population problem is education and proper awareness among people. Unfortunately, at this stage India doesn't seem to have any hope to keep a check on population!

Bitter Bread

Bitter Bread
Bread,doubleroti,pao,bun or we call it with any other name; it is the part of our breakfast which completes our daily routine. This ready to eat item is popular with egg and butter but the recent study by Centre For Science and Environment (CSE) have turned this must breakfast eatable bitter. 
CSE conducted test on various samples collected from different part of the capital belonging to different brands. They found 84% samples test positive for potassium bromate and potassium iodate after tests on 38 varieties which include Britannia,Harvest Gold,KFC, McDonalds, Domino's Pizza and Subway. These revelations are shocking and disturbing as all of us have eaten from one of these brands. It should also be noted that these two substances which are used to soften breads and enhance their color and texture namely potassium bromate and potassium iodate are banned in many countries of the world after a study conducted in the 90's. These substances however are not harmful a…

The Masked Life

The Masked Life


I met with an accident few years back (precisely 10 years ago). It was dangerous and I came out of hospital in about ten days. Except a foot injury which needed dressing every week for around a year I was alright. But that what I and my family thought but as I few days past I realized problems of sore throat, running nose, itching eyes which were watering and initially it was difficult to even face a bright light. I was diagnosed with allergy from almost anything cold water, wind, dust, etc which increases in changing season. Doctor advised me to spend most time in homes and medicines were provided to control the allergy. It cured with time and now I only take single tablet daily to control my allergy. The doctor said to take it only when allergy symptoms appear but they comes out when I stop taking medicine. Now while researching about indoor air pollution I found what force me to take that tablet continuously even when I am mostly home-bound. 
We can avoid Indoor ai…

(Inter - Religion marriage still taboo among Indians ? What is your take on it .)

We as Indians are still confused for our cultural identity i.e who we are as residents of this country. Hindu,Hindustani,Indian,Bharatiya,Hindi or something else. When there is so much struggle in conveying our identity then how people who consider even inter-caste marriages as taboo would accept Inter - Religion marriages. We are all united under our constitution which make all of us equal and grants freedom to follow any religion. An adult individual thus holds the freedom to choose his or her partner regardless to any religion.The constitution also declares India as Bharat or India and not as Hindustan which denotes its secular identity not related to a particular religion. How a Chris…
