One reason for the overpopulation problem in India.


NEW DELHI - Only a quarter of condoms made in India are used for sex, most of the others are used to make saris, toys and bathroom slippers, a newspaper reported Saturday.

The condoms are valuable to manufacturers because of the lubricant on them. Sari weavers place the condoms on their thread spools and the lubricant on the prophylactics is rubbed off on the thread, making it move faster through their sewing machines, The Economic Times newspaper quoted an Indian industry official as saying.

Sari makers also turn the condom's inside out, place them on their fingers and use the high-quality lubricant to polish gold and silver threads used in the traditional Indian women's outfits.

India manufactures more than 1 billion condoms annually to check population growth and curb the spread of HIV/AIDS.

from another news article: When police raided the home in Bahia Blanca, one of the officers was looking through children's reading books when he began to find condoms between the pages, said Ana Maria Vives, attorney for the criminal section of the court in Bahia Blanca. He asked one of the little girls what they were for and before she could answer, an older boy, a teenager, told her in English, 'Say they are to tie your hair.' "The boy didn't know the officer spoke English." [Evan Moore, "Secret, worldwide cult preys on children," Houston Chronicle, February 4, 1990]
