Quotable

Ghulam Nabi Azad, India's Health and Family Welfare Minister on ways to control population in India:

“If there is electricity in every village, then people will watch TV till late at night and then fall asleep. They won’t get a chance to produce children, When there is no electricity there is nothing else to do but produce babies. Don’t think that I am saying this in a lighter vein. I am serious. TV will have a great impact. It’s a great medium to tackle the problem. 80 per cent of population growth can be reduced through TV.”
