Every year there are different themes for the world population day and this year’s theme is - “Universal Access to Reproductive Health Services”. Reproductive health problems remain the leading cause of ill health and death for women of childbearing age worldwide. Some 222 million women who would like to avoid or delay pregnancy lack access to effective family planning. Nearly 800 women die every day in the process of giving life. About 1.8 billion young people are entering their reproductive years, often without the knowledge, skills and services they need to protect themselves.
Increasing population is a concern around the world but the same is more relevant in a country like India where it has hit more than 1.22 billion mark so far. Every year population day is observed with theme and lots of activities are being organised around the world. It is important for us to think how best we can make use of the human resources for the betterment and welfare of the society. There must be proper planning and spread of education is important as that will contribute to planning and also adds in development.
Census is being conducted in India and there are also departments which deal with family planning. There are departments which look upon safe health to all citizen of the country. Increasing population affects resources as they are limited. There must be innovation and new technology which enables us to meet the challenges in coming days. Our young population is capable of doing many things just what is needed is right mentoring and right direction so that they excel in every field.
Instead of blaming population for being a problem, we should look at it this way: As human beings are not only born with a stomach but a mind too which can change many things. It's our perspectives and attitude towards it and how best we can use our resources for the growth of the nation in particular and world in general.
