North Velli street compound. A happy family in the old fashion way ?
Normally in the South families try to restrict children to two on a free base.
The old tradition is finally broken where a man was the more highly respected,
the more children he had and some generations back a man could have several women,
so still you meet a lot of people all family from each other here in Tamil Nadu, certainly if they are from the same cast.
Did you know that .....
The population of Tamil Nadu for 2005 is estimated as 6.5 crores(65 million).
Urban population in Tamil Nadu has steadily increased from 18% to 43.86% during 1931-2001.
Chennai City's population had crossed 43 lakhs in 2001 and is one of the Mega Cities in India
and it is expected to reach 48 lakhs (almost 5 million) in 2011.
Madurai has a population in excess of 1.1 million.
India’s population will likely grow 52 percent to 1.6 billion by 2050,
when it will surpass China as the world’s most populous country.
So it will take a hell of a lot good managing and less quarreling in politics to run such a big country,
the government is making blueprints of every state to focus their need, special commissions are taking care of that,
I hope that they won't forget that "education" schools, universities is one of the best rewarding investment you can do on longer term.
Bangalore top software designers are a simple prove to that, taking an already a considerable part in the gross national income.
79% of the population in Tamil Nadu is above the poverty line (national in India avg 74%).
Question stays wich mesure did they use for this poverty line ?
Enjoy colorful India ....
