Not to sound evil, but there are far too many people in India...

That aside, I wonder how many people will "pray" for them...

In a world where gods exist and are capable of intervening, what reason is there for hurricanes to exist in the first place?

I won't call it evil, but could you be a bit more specific about what you mean by that? Because without some qualifiers, that does sound petty, dismissive and callous.

Simply put, India is overpopulated.

Can you imagine how nice the place could be if there was say....25% of the population?

How much less pollution and issues would be there?

Sure, I can imagine it. I'm wondering how much thought you've actually put into it, though. How would you advise they achieve this goal of yours? The current population of India is something over 1,200,000,000, so that's over 900 million "extra" people. A lot of bodies to be disposed of, even if they obligingly line up for firing squads, march themselves over cliffs or whatever. A fair amount of pollution and issues right there, assuming the trivial obstacle of the instinct to survive could be magically be erased in nearly a billion people's minds.

Still, assuming you can do that, there are the economic / social repercussions of that many people suddenly absent from jobs like power generation and distribution, hospital staff, schools, law enforcement... a few issues there, too.

A natural disaster (or series of disasters) that killed that many people would certainly not confine itself to a single country. And India isn't that far from Australia, geographically speaking. You might think about that when you indulge in such fantasies.

I did not say i personally want to lower their population, but i would like them to have some birth control or something.
How hard is it to use a condom?

If they're not freely available and you're below the poverty line, probably reasonably hard.

Plus you have religious leaders (not just in Christianity) that state that using a condom goes against their god/s.

Ok, thanks for the clarification. As I said, sarcasm can be a difficult thing to convey over the internet, and I've seen some shocking lapses in what I consider basic empathy on this forum.

Birth control is, clearly, a difficult and complex problem. For instance, there's a very clear correlation in a given society between smaller families and women being better educated: http://www.prb.org/pdf/IsEducat-Contracept_Eng.pdf. In traditional Indian (indeed, most) cultures, that isn't encouraged and is quite often discouraged.
