What happened to India's exploding population?


As you can see on the map above, India is getting close to the replacement rate. When did that happen? How did that happen?

Television has had a huge impact on this as most shows show families with smaller sizes. You can read all about this recent development in  Population Bomb? So Wrong, by Marin Lewis .
