If you heard our minister of health and family welfare last weekend -- and Ghulam Nabi Azad certainly takes his job very seriously -- then India can control its population by simply watching more television.

If young couples watch the reality shows, soap operas and assorted mindless programming on telly till well past midnight, Mr Azad believes they will drop off to sleep instead of indulging in sexual hank-panky.

If that happens, voila, the minister argues, India's birth rate would come down dramatically.
