India’s Birth Control Plan

I’m unsure if this is funny or sad, but India’s health and welfare minister has come up with a non-intrusive plan for regulating the country’s population boom in its rural communities. Without resorting to laws against extra children or taxes for having them, the plan is elegantly simple, and if the population growth rate in places like the U.S., Canada, and Europe are any indication, will be wildly effective.

What’s the plan? Run electricity to every village such that the residents will be able to watch TV at night. Although some of those Bollywood productions are pretty steamy, so this could backfire!
