India's solution to population control

As everybody knows, India is the second most populous country. Over the years, the Indian government, has been trying various measures to curb the baby boom. As expected it has failed..till now!

The Indian Supreme Court, recently declared same sex marriages legal!
The male female ratio in India is around 1.1. So as it is less men are finding eligible females. Add to it, a percentage of lesbians who would have been otherwise forced to marry a male. Add to it, similar homosexuals, who would have been otherwise forced to marry a female.

So, with the stroke of a pen, the Indian judiciary has managed to do what the politicians couldn't in all these years!

I don't think it will be a solution for reducing population.
If i like to eat apples, i won't touch oranges even if i am in an orange orchard.

As far as my knowledge of medical science goes, I know of no proven incident, where two human beings of the same gender, have been able to biologically produce an offspring.

I commend your knowledge of biological science, you do seem to know things correctly.
I quote from your first post

Now read my comment again

Does my reply now makes sense?

To reduce population, 1 law is needed:
"Nobody, who has not conceived on the date of this law being enacted, shall have more than 2 children. Nobody shall be allowed to conceive again, if the first delivery resulted in twins(or triplets etc). Concession from this law shall be granted incase a couple has a twin(or a triplet) on second pregnancy."
In short, no man (or woman) can have more than 2 children (excluding twins during second pregnancy) (allowed to adopt as many children, though).

If this rule comes into place, lakhs of protestors will burn our buses and properties to rule out this rule. They will create a big scene until government removes this rule. India has caste-based system and this doesn't work there. Only solution is, instead of focusing on controling population we need to focus on increasing productivity by banning morning movie shows, encouraging house wives to work to support their family, encouraging part-time jobs for college going students etc. The system of 'one-earner-many-eaters' should be improved to 'many-earners-many-eaters- in families.

I think out tv channels doing their best part but not with movies, with daily lousy serials
Recent trend in daily serials is take a movie and cut it into 500 episodes and telecast with ads. Lot of money to channels

I am planning to start a tv channel where anchor to host all will just hug each other and simply cries and full tears etc along with dances/singing. Channel name
is 'Sadvision'.

Your Post has got all the facts completely wrong.

First its the Delhi high court - not the supreme court

Second the Hon. High Court has struck down certain parts Section 377 - it has not declared same sex marriages legal!

You seem wrong picture of whats happening in town

Well I am not a legal eagle, and I thought both were the same.
Even then no harm done. If it is legal, the next step would be marriage...or live ins! My logic would still word!

My friend had come down from Korea and i felt a bit awkward going out with him for lunch and dinner.
Striking article 377 made me feel uneasy going out with a guy.

I think its time i find myself a girlfriend (or a friend who happens to be a girl also, who doesn't mind having lunch with me) .

Thats very debatable. There were Governments way back in the day who actually tried and did more than just air ads or have catchy slogans pasted on billboards encouraging couples to look into family planing. Unfortunately forceful sterilization was an idea that could never work in a democracy where the majority of the population....

The Indian Supreme Court, recently declared same sex marriages legal!

no, it simply legalized A**l S**. This is a law that is supposed to get us away from Victorian sentiments or perhaps trappings of Abrahamic religions where such acts are considered sinful.


The male female ratio in India is around 1.1. So as it is less men are finding eligible females. Add to it, a percentage of lesbians who would have been otherwise forced to marry a male. Add to it, similar homosexuals, who would have been otherwise forced to marry a female.

no, The male: female ratio at birth(which is relevant when discussing population issues) is 1.12. So that means for every 1.12 males at birth there is 1 female. This doesn't determine much in terms of how the future population of India is to increase, it just means, if supply and demand work, then females would become a scarcer and a much more valuable commodity and males would have to be the ones would have to be shelling out dowry in the near future to acquire a female.

So, with the stroke of a pen, the Indian judiciary has managed to do what the politicians couldn't in all these years!

sodomy being legalized doesn't solve anything as far as population problems are concerned. Even if gay marriage was legalized it won't help that as gay couples could easily adopt a child from India or abroad or choose to have a child through surrogacy.

We need to educate our people not to breed like insects.

Recently, there was this incident of a father and son dying of hunger(in the state of Uttar Pradesh).
Son was married and had 5 children himself.
I don't understand why these guys think that their wives are baby producing factories.
The religious leaders of that community should advice followers to think rationally.

For such desperate situations, draconian laws and the will to impose them are required.
Unfortunately, our Congress led government is just interested in vote bank politics

Who cares about over-population and vote bank politics?
I believe in traditional Indian values and will remain loyal to the dynasty or to the rabble-rouser and vote only for either of them.
Even if you give me a right to choose, I will choose the King as my leader, such is the contempt I have against your so-called modern ideas.
In fact, I see only merits in over-population over which there is so much brouhaha in this forum.
After all, one positive effect of having so many people is that my leader doesn't need to care about them, and then he/she
can rather concentrate in nation a.k.a statue building or settling the important historic disputes.
And who on earth needs one child policy?
We must show efficiency in the use of available resources.So, we put 4 people in the space available for 1, thus showing the world the true prowess of Indian managerial skills.
Not to mention that this is at least one area in which China feels some competition from us.
Cynics will keep cribbing about how all our resources are being consumed and the water table that keeps going down further every year, but what do they know?
The ultimate fact is that I need to protect myself from other(outsiders, out castes, followers of other religions etc. etc. etc.) people in India who are out to kill me.
And the only way to protect my self is by voting for either the dynasty or the demagogue.

Population increase means more votes, this is what our politicians want. I lost confidence and trust on Indian policitians years back. However, some corner of my mind still expecting a good change. I do not know how much India survives terrorist attacks by the time change comes.

One simple example which pin points laziness of our authorities is when Mumbai is under attack, our NSG Commondos waiting in Mumbai airport for 4 hours doing nothing. This delay's cost is so many lives!

But, there is other side to Slum Dog Millionaire too, its positive side of India. There are certianly good people in India and I am not able to find them. May be they are hidden beneath four lions or I may be looking in wrong places.

Really?? Doesn't it imply more votes to the opposite parties as well?
