First of all, can you imagine not to have as many children as you want? That some authority tells you what to do? That is very interesting and western countries could not understand this. However, it had also a huge impact in the sense that China’s population would not grow too much as some people say India’s population has done.
It is an interesting thought that I believe is worth to be discussed – how many people, very poor people here in India have many children although they are very poor?
The question that arises now as well is – did China a good job in prohibiting its citizen to have more than one child for the benefits of the country? Would the country by now be over populated? But what about the ratio of male and female?
There are many questions that needs to be answered and Indian government that might have had the idea of promoting a similar action should be very careful about this.
When I talk to women, mothers, men and fathers – they all say: no one should be in charge of deciding how many children one is allowed to have as every child is a gift! They also said, every gift needs to be taken care of so one should know how many children one could have in order to provide them a good education.
