The Bangladesh Times,
Apropos the article entitled 2001 A.D. published in the columns of your esteemed paper of the 6th Jan. - 2009, that is commendable for its presentation of details. There is a branch of science now becoming increasingly popular called Futurology which uses statistics to prove the results of various social, economic and ethnic processes going on in the present. It is therefore that the above mentioned article falls within the area of Futurology.
The article fails to mention how much time will indoctrination against large families take in Bangladesh. Social change is a very slow process and the propaganda of advertisements on T.V., radio, hoardings in public places take decades to establish itself in the public consciousness. Bangladesh has the most traditional social structure. While some families desire one baby units, there are still many who prefer large families, especially in the rural setting.
