People, People, Everywhere . . .

Bangladesh, a nation of over 16 crore, is home to 1,142 people per square kilometre, with the poor having more children than the rich. The country's, and especially the capital Dhaka's, over-population problem causes not only severe traffic congestion, but crisis of resources such as water and medical facilities. And, while high-rise buildings and slums are mushrooming all over the city to house the teeming millions, thousands of others remain homeless and hapless in a city that has been stretched over its limit.
July 11 is World Population Day.
