Fertility Rates of South Aisa..Shocking East Punjab has lowest!

Recommended Posts

I think we must take into consideration that one of the factors which shows such a low fertility rate for Punjab is because so many youth are going abroad compared to the other states. If this was not a factor then our fertility rate should probably be near same as Haryana's.

No it wouldn't. In Haryana there are still a lot of child marriages happening compared to Punjab.

Thats the sole reason we should have 3 kids. Look at the muslims, they have fertility rate over 2. In places like afghanistan it bumped up to 4! I think our fertility rate dropped during kharku period. Our kids were killed, the youth were killed, hence making the leftover people to bump up the fertility rate, which they couldnt.

I think we Sikhs should aim for 3 kids for each family. 

It is above replacement number which is 2.1.

3 is an achievable, realistic and sustainable number.

If the family is well off, they could go for 4.

The other big problem is this western mentality that our people (and especially our girls) have adopted which is they don't want a big family. They don't want to handle that responsibility etc. Because they want more time to "go on holiday" or other stuff. They (at most) want 1 or 2 children. 

Now don't get me wrong, if you can't afford to take care if more than 2 children due to time, money, health etc. then that's 💯 fine. But if you can, you should be aiming to, as a couple, have at least 3 children. 

Usually at this point I would say something like "...and if we don't, then our future generations will curse us...", but at this rate, in time, we won't have any future generations left...

Fertility rate below replacement level for all but Hindus ...

Islam is the 'fastest growing religion' and will 'overtake ...

We have the lowest birthrates in West too...Buddhists are just behind..

Also take into consideration what type of 'Sikhs'  ...the non religious, atheists, cultural Punjabi prob consider themselves as Sikhs by ethnicity.....then it'll be even less

In Punjab there is growing number on atheists among the Punjabi, and they wear turbans, so they also might catgeroise themselves as 'Sikhs'...

We are really screwed in near future...and the fact we dont have own state make is even worrying....

After the holocaust, the Jews secured the Hasidic Jewish community to marry asap and give birth to at least 10 kids....they have families of at LEAST 8 and most is over 10+ in israel

There was interview i read where Rabbi was telling the Jews to marry Jews and have many kids asap to keep the Jewish population growing...

Meanwhile most Gurdwaras are okay with inter-faith marriages...

more like 5 at least lol

Think about how many 'Sikh' families grow up and stay into Sikhi..i'd say from what i see here in West, one marrys outside Sikhi, other marrys to Punjabi family, and one ends up not marrying or divorce..or nowadays...one belongs to lgbtq
