Transcript of Overpopulation in New Delhi

Overpopulation in New Delhi By: Sayed, Sharat, Nithin The bus is not full yet... Human overpopulation in Delhi/Haryana has led to a severe crisis and war for water. People are fighting for water and sometimes even killing others for this valuable resource. During the year, the area is very dry and does not receive much rainfall during this time. The low amount of rain the area gets is 6.1 millimeters and its high during the monsoon season is 284 millimeters. Also, what was a major water source for the area a few years back, the Yamuna River, is now being used to purposes such as washing clothes and factory gas leakage, leading to a tremendous amount of pollution and unsafe drinking conditions.This is a major disadvantage for the citizens and the area. Also during this horrific time for both states, water supplying companies charge a large amount of money for tap water, causing people under the poverty line (which is close to 13 percent) to get absolutely no drinking supply. This causes many deaths and one-tenth of the population to not have access to water. Fifty-two percent of the water is wasted by leaks during the flow of water in the pipelines by the Delhi Jal Board. This is water that could prove very useful for residents here. Resources from other countries/cities can be brought into New Delhi to help with the overpopulation. For example the Indian state of Sikkim has an good amount of resources as well as a small population. Therefore this state could benefit New Delhi by sending out goods and resources to India and help decrease the amount of trouble that human overpopulation is causing them. What can be done Another method that New Delhi, can stop human overpopulation is by enforcing a law, such as the single child law in China. This law can lead New Delhi and the rest of india from becoming a rapid growing country to a more slower and stable growing country. Another Method Today India has been able to organize several programs that are trying to limit the population. The Family Planning Association of India is spending hundreds of thousands of dollars trying to limit the birth rate to only two offspring. But that has come up to be a problem because there are a couple of reason why families choose to have numerous children, such as poverty and religious beliefs. For example I'm some parts of India there is an islam population, and according to their religion they don't believe in the amount of children to have because they believe that it is a gift from god. What is being done One person can try and migrate to a new country with much more land available per person. This can allow more resources per person and is good for the individual moving and the individual staying. If you do not live in a country where there is overpopulation, but you live in a country where there are few people per square mile, then you can try and promote your country to attract people from overpopulated countries to come. This can bring more people to the country with less people and brighten their economy and it can reduce the amount of people in the overpopulated country. What can one do to help? VS New Delhi New York Conclusion Overpopulation in New Delhi and most of India has led to the rapid growth of population in the country of India. Even though many attempts have been tried, it is only miniscule to the amount of work it will take for New Delhi/India to reach a slow and steady rate of growth.
