World population day

Each year 11th of July is observed as World Population Day all across the globe with the intention to raise awareness on various issues of overpopulation including the family planning, gender equality, poverty, maternal health and human rights. The World Population Day was established by the Governing Council of the United Nations Development Programme in 1984, when the world population reached 5 billion. We all worry about the population explosion but we don’t worry at the right time. In 100.AD the world population was only 400 millions and it has reached 7.6 billion. Per second 4.2 people are born while 1.8 people die each day.
However in the most populated countries, China, India, USA, Indonesia, Brazil, Pakistan, Nigeria, Bangladesh, Russia the population has reached an alarming state, however, among them in some developed countries the measures are being taken to control it. According to the experts there will be a population of 9.8 billion by 2030.For this overpopulated world there is an over-usage of resources. More vehicles are used and with the increase in population the pollution will also increase which will surely increase more chances of global warming. Climate change is also a major environmental problem. The world is currently facing a great shortage of water as we take the instance of our own country where in some places the water level has decreased to an alarming extent, so how the world will be able to feed itself in future.
So on this World Population Day awareness should be raised that how this overpopulated will settle itself due to the shortage of various needs. Through this letter I aspire to message my nation and the all others living across the globe that it is the appropriate time to control the population, because it stops explosion of overpopulation, otherwise there will be no place left on earth for living.
