Why do india and China have such a large population as compared to other countries.

As an Indian, I do know Indian couples do tend to have a lot of kids but is the difference that much that we have such a larger population than most of the world?

It has rather little to do with culture. Rather, India and China are both situated in probably the best place on the planet to start a civilization. Both are subtropical places with great soil quality and large rivers (Yangtze, Yellow, Brahmaputra, Indus, Ganges). These factors make it extremely easy to start a civilization there, and once one is up and running, the high food yield that’s possible there can create advanced and wealthy societies that incentivize even more children.

TLDR: Lots of rice and barley.
