Here are some help in understanding this cartoon:

Scene 1: "In the midst of an economic crisis such as this, I do not see the reason behind the poor having more and more children", says one of the gentlemen on observing a pregnant lady surrounded by her children with one carried on her back.


Scene 2: "It is observed  that in the time of economic stagnation, psychological depression leads to more pregnancies," said the other gentleman.


Scene 3: "The poor sure have a funny way of going to bed with their frustrations", said the other.
