“Go Forth And Multiply!“ That’s what the human population has successfully been doing for thousands and thousands of years, expanding, exploring, migrating, conquering, utilizing, evolving, civilizing, industrializing, and now, destroying the very land upon which we live.
With 1,130,000,000 (1.13 billion) people, India is currently the world’s second largest country. India crossed the one billion mark in the year 2000, one year after the world’s population crossed the six billion threshold.
