Ecological balance briefly refers to coexistence of living as well as non-living organization in the environment.
With the growth of population, many problems such as food, clothing transport and above all a big crowd has emerged.
For feeding to a growing pollution we have to require the use of modern, sophisticated technologies, good quality manures and a well –established irrigation system. But ultimately we see that excessive uses of these things have not only disturbed the land base but also a great havoc has been caused to our rivers in terms of dams etc.
Similarly clothing, transportation etc. are causing havoc to the ecology in the name of development.
Wildlife is gradually becoming extinct from our land. A massive hunt and killing of wildlife has been done.
Large scale deforestation has turned to the ecological balance even more hazardous.
Government is making efforts to contain all these things, but the only hurdle in all their efforts is massive demand of consumption as a result of unable growth of population.
The fast growing population is proving very harmful to the country. When the population grows at a fast speed, there are more persons to be, educated and employed. Likewise, food becomes scarce and even health facilities run short of requirement.
