Mobile phones are increasing faster than the population
The increasing population is a problem for the countries like India. But it is not a big problem for many Western countries in the world. In Japan, both birth and death rates are reducing very fast. The problem in that country is that the population of old persons is too much as compared to children which are too less. The situation in Western countries is not that bad but they too are moving towards worst.

Asian and African countries are worried from the increasing population and they spend major part of their energy and a budget towards its solution. Only one thing that is challenging the population is the number of mobiles. The difference between the   population and number of mobiles is reducing so fast and the latest statistics shows that the number of mobiles against the population is 87 per cent.

It is expected that by the end of this year, the number of mobiles will be more than the population of human-beings and in 2017, its figure will reach 140 per cent of men’s population.

On an average, a family of five members will be having minimum 7 mobiles. The very interesting factor is that the maximum numbers of mobiles are in China followed by India while the America comes at third place. The latest figures show that more than 89 crore mobiles are in use in India against the population of around 1.26 billion.

The mobile instrument is now not confined to urban rather it has become an important part of one’s life even in rural areas also. At the same time, the mobiles have not become so cheap that it could reach the hands of crores of people living below the poverty line. No doubt, you will find certain people in rural and urban areas keeping more than one mobile and this is the reason which disturb the percentage, which can be called ‘Digital Divide’ in the case of Computer and Internet.

For example, on the one side there are people who are having more than one mobile and on the other hand, there are people for whom keeping mobile is still a dream.

The welfare states try to empower the people by providing right to education and food but the time has come to add mobile in the list. Rather, mobile phone has become an important tool in the list of requirements of the people to connect them with the happenings in the world.
