1.56 billion: India’s population rises again

India has constantly been undergoing a rising population crisis. Over a span of two years, the population rapidly increased by 2 billion or so. Is Covid the reason behind this? But according to statistics, the highest number of deaths also happened during the last two years. The only possible reason could be, generally termed as baby boom, in the West. When there is an increase in the number of births, more than the number of deaths. It has definitely been a season of babies not only for the general public but also for our very own film industry.
