It is only three months that we Indians have been hearing of the West Asian country of Syria quite regularly. But Syria has been soaking in a bloodbath since the year 2011.

The war began in form of an unrest in the year 2011 with nationwide protests against President Bashar al-Assad’s. To this Syrian forces responded with violent crackdowns. The conflict gradually was made to escalate from protests to an armed war after months of military campaign. And today Syria stands at the doorstep of complete destruction.

Birth Rates and Upbringing of Children

Just last week China ended its famous “One-Child Policy” as a result of its rapidly aging population. The Chinese couples will now be allowed to have two children. India too on its part has been having its two children campaign, which was the first population control campaign in the world at its launch in the year 1950.

Globally most of the developed nations like United States, Japan, etc. and most of the European countries are facing multiple economic, social and cultural problems owing to aging population which is a result of lessened birth rates. Economically this has resulted in major cut down in productivity, wealth and has caused increase in spending on pensions and healthcare. Countries which record lower birth rates also face multiple problems relating to preserving their cultural and traditional values, and also face imbalanced and skewed demographics with respect to religion and gender. The recent issue of Middle Eastern immigrants in European countries is a classic example of this. 
The problem of lessening of birth rates has arisen because trends like “Double Income Single Kid” (DISK) and “Double Income No Kid” (DINK) have been increasingly observed in the developed western societies and those societies that they influence.
