According to a report released by NITI Ayog, it has been said that 21 Indian cities will run out of ground water by 2020. The report goes on to tell us that by 2030, around 40 percent of India will not have clean drinking water. In May 2019, India lost the tag of being the fastest-growing economy to China.

A report by Greenpeace said the 7 out of 10 most polluted and dirty cities are in India. This report includes Gurugram, Lucknow, Ghaziabad, Patna, Bhiwadi, Noida and Faridabad. A report given by UN, it has been said that India's largest dump located in Ghazipur is going to rise up to the level of Taj Mahal, it symbolises India's pollution and ignorance about environmental issues.

India's unemployment rate is at 45 years high, and by a recent report, among all major economies, India has the highest non-performing assests loans. India has one of the highest suicides rates and we are ranked 140 in the happiness index that is released by the UN.

What is worrying among all these reports, the state of the Indian economy and pollution level. If the problem of the economy is not solved. As economists and environmentalists across the globe are predicting a dooms day very soon. Among the most prominent economies in the world, India might be the first one to get hit. Politics across the globe is taking a ugly turn where hate has taken over people's mind, and might lead collapse of the West soon.

With India being under prepared regarding climate change, and slowdown in economic growth, and most probably going to hit a recession very soon. India is looking at an apocalypse like situation very soon, within next 30 years, India might not cease to exist.
