Mr Pradip Burman Shares His View On Overpopulation
The birth rate is at an all-time higher in India
as compared to the death rate. India is in the
second position globally for the highest
population and is said to step up to the first
position by 2025. Also, its landmass is much
smaller to accommodate a higher population. Such
issues have been noticed by social leaders like
Mr Pradip Burman and are making valuable efforts
to eradicate overpopulation.
Mr Pradip Burman, chairman of Dabur, Nepal and a
board member of Aviva Life Insurance, is a
philanthropist, sworn environmentalist and a
crusader of sustainability. He has been the
director of his ancestral FMCG company Dabur
India. He has also founded Ayurvet, a company
manufacturing herbal products for animals.
According to Mr Pradip Burman, overpopulation has
led to the two biggest sustainability challenges,
i.e. climate change and air pollution. Due to air
pollution, our children are suffering. They have
asthma, lung ailments and other respiratory
problems from a young age. Pollution is also the
leading cause of climate change. It is happening
through overpopulation because the greater the
population, the higher the emission of gases. Mr
Pradip Burman further says, Overpopulation is
the most significant challenge faced by many
countries today. As the global population grows
towards 10 billion, consumption of water, food
and energy is increasing, which results in the
depletion of non-renewable resources. But these
challenges can be overcome through solutions like
recycling and 100 consumption of renewable
energy. We have to recycle everything and consume
resources that will come from renewable energy.
If we can execute these two things, I think the
problem will be solved.
Being around philanthropists and
environmentalists all his life, Mr Pradip Burman
is determined towards protecting the environment
and is currently working for various social
causes. One of them is population stabilization
through Project Aakar.
Project Aakar is an initiative that focuses on
curbing overpopulation in India. Setting up the
project in 2 districts in Uttar Pradesh, namely
Barabanki and Bahraich, they educate the people
in rural areas on the importance of family
planning, reproduction, and the usage of
contraceptives. The reason behind starting this
initiative in these regions is due to its high
fertility rate. They are also creating awareness
among newly married and young unmarried people.
There are primary health centres where they make
contraceptives and distribute them to young
couples. Their short film, namely Dampatti No
1, depicts the importance of family planning and
has won an award for the best film towards family
Project Akar is an initiative through the Mobius
Foundation, a non-profit organization founded by
Mr Pradip Burman that works towards environmental
protection. The organization aims to protect the
ecosystem by educating people about the
importance of sustainable development that can
also help eradicate overpopulation. They organize
awareness programs that help to curb
overpopulation, pollution and traditional
practices that harm the environment. Besides
Project Aakar, they have also initiated two more
projects, i.e. World Environmental School (WESc)
and Gyan Anant Vidyalaya (GAV). These are
educational institutes that help people educate
about the importance of a sustainable environment
and the harmful consequences of resource
extinction in the future.
In todays world, we cant deny the significance
of sustainable development. Adhering to the goals
of stabilizing overpopulation is the need of the
hour, and we as a country should come forward
together to accomplish this mission.
