2011 Tata Nano – Click above for high-res image gallery

According to a 2011 census, India has a population of 1,210,193,422 people. That's 17.47 percent of the world's population living on just 2.3 percent of the planet. The only place more crowded is a new In-N-Out at lunch time. Health officials in India are looking for novel ways to drum up interest in sterilization clinics, and one in particular has resorted to prize giveaways. The top draw? A new Tata Nano.

According to The Times of India, Jhunjhunu in Rajasthan is offering a variety of prizes for men who come into their clinic and put the clamps on their own private ball state swim team. Besides the Nano, prizes include motorcycles, TVs and kitchen stand mixers.

      This kills 2 birds with 1 stone for India. Not only will it slow down reproducing, but it will actually contribute to population decline-- once these things inevitably catch fire.

      If you're driving one of those, you're already neutered.

      So if a guy is gay, it's like getting a free car without really losing anything.

      Why not just skip that step and light your nads on fire. In the end, that's what's going to happen in the Nano anyway.

      How appropriate: in exchange for letting doctors in to your nutsack they give you a car that looks like a scrotum.

      This is a great way to reduce the population of India. Not only they will not have kids, but also they will die when eventually the Nano catches fire.

      Good idea!! Why don't we implement a plan like this is USA? Up the prize to a Cadillac or Mustang possibly. Well worth the cost.

      Actually, I want to see a Tata Nano-only racing series, with lots of bumping.

        That could be highly amusing. I want in on this.

      This is an excellent idea. Wish we could implement that into our welfare system. If you're on welfare for more than five years and have a child during welfare, to continue payments you have to get sterilized. Not that there is anything wrong with living on welfare forever while popping out seven kids to increase your benefits while having no clue where the father is.
