In some countries 1 billion is 1,000,000 million, while in others it is 1,000 million. When (s)he put it this way, (s)he leaves no doubt.

Miquelino, math is math. 1,000,000 million = 1,000,000,000,000 (one trillion). 1,000 million = 1,000,000,000 (one billion)

It's a language thing, not a math thing. I believe 1 billion is 1,000,000 million in french for example. It goes million, milliard, billion, billiard or something to this effect.

... while most of the largest cities are on the coast, the central part is just as fertile and inhabitable as the coast. there's plenty of obscure cities larger than paris or nyc in the interior.

China has the one-child per family politics that controls the population increase. India doesn't have such several politics conserning this issue.

Although China is considering lifting this policy, so it will be interesting to see how that affects the population growth.

With more people being literate, India does not need any such policy as automatically there are less number of children per couple i.e,1 or 2 or three in majority of families and there are very less couple with more than these no. in today's generation. And following policies will definitely lead to higher older population like china so its better that no. bring down by their own and I think no.s are reducing very fast.
