In this paper, we
investigate the reliability analysis of a powerloom plant by using interval
valued intuitionistic fuzzy sets (IVIFS). Herein, we modeled a powerloom plant
as a gracefully degradable system having two units A(n) and B(m)
connected in series. The reliability ofncomponents of unitAandmcomponents of unitBis assumed to be an IVIFS defined over
the universe of discourse [0, 1]. Thus, the reliability of the system obtained
is an IVIFS that covers the inherited uncertainty in data collection and
reliability evaluation of a powerloom plant.
We begin by noting how India is highly overpopulated and that this creates negative externalities for world environment. Next, we note that females in child-bearing ages alone determine the birth rate, compounding the population growth anywhere. Third, forcing families to have unwanted daughters can increase discrimination against women. Fourth, most countries impose no restrictions on women choosing the sex of their next baby. We use these propositions to argue that cultural preference against daughters in India has important benefits until India achieves net reproduction rate of unity. We argue that the correct policy for malnourished overpopulated India must be the exact opposite of the focus in North America and Europe, where they have an obesity epidemic and declining populations.
