I can understand why many Indians are thinking that the Indian government should impose population birth control methods like China's 'one-child' policy, but I don't think India would benefit from it in the long run. Firstly, I don't think it will be possible to enforce such a policy. Unlike China, which is a communist dictatorship, India is a democracy and no Indian government would dare to use the methods that China has used in enforcing the policy. Secondly, if you look at the Chinese example, the one child policy has not always been well enforced and its created allot of social problems, which the communist never thought about. As things stand, there are plenty of Chinese in the rural areas that have more than one child. It's easy to 'cheat' the system when you are living in a lightly regulated rural area. While Indians may look enviously at China's impressive economic performance in recent years, they should bless the fact that they don't face a potential demographic time bomb. What are the bombs that China faces? Gender Imbalance: Chinese couples can only have one child. Tradition dictates that boys are more desirable than girls. Thanks to the availability of ultra sound, many couples abort girl children in favor of boys. China faces a potential 'woman-shortage,' and a surplus of young men who will be competing for brides. Societies with an access of unusable young men are likely to suffer from high crime and you can expect to see China needing to use these young men in aggressive military adventures. Aging Population: China's population is on average older than India's. This gives India a economic edge with more young people at 'economically productive' ages and China will need to care for the growing elderly with resources it cannot afford to give away. Brats: Many of the children from the 'one-child' policy have become spoil t and may lack the desire to work as hard as their parents. You can look forward to a generation of princelings unaccustomed to having to survive on their own. So, while Indians may wish for the 'stability' that China seems to have, they should also look at the problems of the Chinese system and ask themselves if this is what they really want. Personally, the most effective way for India to control its population is to get more of its women educated and reform the economy even faster. Better educated women and more economic opportunities will halt a population explosion with less problems than an enforced 'one-child' policy.
