India is projected to become the world's most populated country, with 1.43 billion people, surpassing China for the first time in 70 years, according to the UN's State of World Population report.
While this population increase can lead to stress on resources like food, water, employment, public transport, and housing, it can also contribute to a powerful country and a growing economy.
The report also indicates that the world's population is the highest it has ever been, mainly due to modern medicine and healthcare.
