Population explosion in India

It was only a decade ago that India's population reached one billion. But it's now so much higher than Train that.

State-owned Indian railways is an immense network connecting every corner of the vast country. More than 6 billion people travel by train in India every year. [Link]

Yikes! Talk about population explosion!

I knew this would happen, I just knew it. India's population growth was just fine until the turn of the century — and then someone had to go and invent Viagra.

If you enjoyed this piece, you'll love Melvin's novel Bala Takes the Plunge, available in North America through Amazon.com and McNallyRobinson.com You can also find it at major bookstores in India and Sri Lanka or online at FlipKart, IndiaPlaza, FriendsofBooks or other sites. A number of readers have written reviews of the novel. An excerpt of the novel can be read here.


  1. I think in coming years we need to lay down new railway lines bcoz population in India cann’t be control for next few years. U can see example of Delhi metro or mumbai locals

  2. India didn’t need Viagra for its population to explode. Trust me!

  3. I think measure steps can be taken for the decrease in population,specially in metro cities,spread of general awareness,or to give special class for the illiterate with no cost of money.
