is india overpopulated.comment in against

    Personally, I believe that the evidence strongly demonstrates that India is overpopulated.

    However, here is an argument against it, in interest of fairness:

    India is not the most dense, population-wise, and has a vast amount of arable land (land that can grow food).

    The Netherlands has a higher population density, but the Netherlands does not have a poverty problem, whereas India most certainly does.  Over 50% of children under the age of 5 are malnourished, and 15 million people sleep in the streets in Bombay.

    However, even if there is enough arable land to feed the current population of India, the population grows more rapidly than any other country in the world.  It is unsustainable.

    Currently, India’s resources are poorly mismanaged, leading over 350 million Indians to live on less than a dollar a day.

    I believe there are solutions to the overpopulation problem in India that are not currently being addressed – and certainly, the large amount of arable land in India is a huge boon.
