The potential impact of the reversal of ‘one child policy’ in China
On the 29th October 2015, after 36 years since the implementation of ‘one child policy’, China has declared that the policy would be reversed for its citizens. Couples would be allowed to have up to two children. It would affect about 90 million Chinese families, but how many of them would contemplate to have a second child is uncertain. Ethnic minorities, rural families, and couples that were both only child themselves were already exempt from the one child policy existing rule. When the policy was relaxed in 2013 so that couples in whom one parent was an only child could have a second baby, only about 14% of the eligible 11 million couples showed their interests. The response was poorer in wealthy urban areas.1, 2 People in China have been used to a culture of one child for so many years that, psychologically, it would not be easy for them to change their mind-set to have more than one child. The present generations of couples in the reproductive age group have grown up with the concept of one child per family as ‘normal’ or ‘usual’. In addition, some couples consider having more than one child as too expensive to afford. Only time will tell how many of the eligible couples would contemplate to have a second child. While the actual increase in the number of deliveries of a second baby is uncertain, it is likely to be greater than what it is at present. It is more than likely to have substantial quantitative and qualitative impact on the health and social services, demography, social structures and relations, businesses, economy etc.

The significance of the shape of the pyramid is debated, but many scholars believe that the pyramids represent rays of the sun as seen coming down from behind a cloud. In mortuary temples, there are references to the soul of the king ascending along the ramp of the sun’s rays to the sun god himself.
It is possible that the shape of the pyramid was inspired by the shape of the mountain and it might have been considered that it would be easy for the dead to reach the God from a height (postulate).
There are many aspects of life that takes the shape of the pyramid when the relevant data are arranged. Whether that has anything to do with the concept regarding the shape of the pyramid is unknown.
