JMA Pilani Rajasthan Celebrates World Population Day

When Teenage girls are empowered, made aware of their rights and are given the tools as well as opportunity to succeed, they become agents of positive change in their communities.

In 1989, the Governing Council of UNDP recommended that 11 July every year be observed as World Population Day as it was on that date in 1987, world population became 5 Billion. The theme for 2016 is Investing in Teenage Girls as all over the world they face enormous challenge. Many parents consider them ready for marriage and motherhood. Many are forced to give up their pursuit of education thus damaging their future prospects. Statistically speaking, every second there are 4.3 births and 1.8 deaths which results in net population gain of 2.5 per second.

Increase in population is more due to decrease in death rates because of improvement in medicine, agriculture, technology, education, disease prevention, immunization schemes etc. Life expectancy has jumped from 30 to 67 years between 1800 and 2005. Life expectancy in developed countries is 77.1 years while in poor countries its 55.9 years and further low in sub Saharan African Countries.

In 1000 AD the global population was 400 million and it took 750 years more for it become 800 million. In 1804 it became 1 billion, in 1927 doubled to 2 billion, reached 3 billion in 1960, 5 billion in 1987, 6 billion in 2000, 7 billion in 2012 and presently is 7.4 billion. In 2030, the global population is expected to be 8.5 Billion and in 2050 9.7 Billion. Top 5 countries population wise are China 1.38 billion, India 1.32 billion, USA 324 million, Indonesia 260 million and Brazil 209 million. In a lighter vein, if popular social media network Facebook is a country then with 1.39 billion people logging on, it would be the most populous nation across the globe. The problems of the world are not due to over population but due to over consumption and inequalities in resource distribution.

Highlighting the above details, well known alumnus of BITS Pilani Prof BR Natarajan presently advisor to Sangam University Bhilwara addressed the students of JMA Pilani and urged them to pay attention to issues in Rajasthan such as one in four girls are married before legal age of 18, maternal mortality rate is 23.9, with 52.1 % women literacy which is below All India norm and the CSR in age group 0-6 having 888 girls per 1000 boys as per 2011 census.
