    The countries that you're asking about have traditionally been agrarian societies that have only become developed countries in the very recent past. In under-developed and developing countries, the birth rate is usually far higher than it is in developed countries because more children means more hands for working the land or more bodies that can be put to work to earn a salary that will contribute to the collective household income.

    The demographics of the three countries have changed dramatically in the past few decades. China has more than 100 cities that have a population of 1 million people or greater. India is home to some of the largest urban agglomerations in the world. And Indonesia's capital, Jakarta, is one of the fastest-growing cities in the world. Traffic, congestion and overcrowding have become so much of an issue that Indonesia has begun to look into relocating the capital to Borneo.

    When a country has a high birth rate, that negates things like a higher mortality rate and a lower life expectancy. 35 people are born in India every minute. 2,100 are born every hour. 50,400 are born every day. The population increases by over 18 million people every year. The number of people dying is only a fraction of that number - less than a third.

    In developed countries, people tend to have fewer children, and although we've certainly fought in more than our fair share of major wars, it's been quite a long time since we've been involved in an all-encompassing, drawn out conflict with a massive death toll.

    Due to their natural resources that enabled them to feed such huge population. If you are looking at maps with their agricultural capacity, you will see that their geo-agricultural possibilities are quite big and they have vast rivers, too.

    China is easy - Chairman Mao is on record as saying: "Even if China's population multiplies many times, she is fully capable of finding a solution; the solution is production... Of all things in the world, people are the most precious." The communist government condemned birth control and banned imports of contraceptives. Whilst the population spiralled out of control, some people were not so precious: anyone who didn't fit the mould in the Cultural Revolution was killed.

    I know India used to be a rich place, but I don't know much about Indian agriculture. In China, agriculture was very efficiently organized and farmers there were very skilled at getting food out of everything. The paddies for rice irrigation supported carp, for instance, which the farmers ate and used as fertilizer. But the areas under wheat and millet cultivation were also maximally used. This produced plenty of surplus food, allowing for a high birth rate.

    If you look at history in the round, across the world, much of it is the history of combat and thus killing. But somehow populations have come back in greater and greater numbers.
