Calling it a battle is a curious example for the motto "make love, not war"

They're going to regret "winning" this war as soon as the aquifers start drying up.

I don't believe this graph. This seems like another example of "experts" predicting that whatever is happening will keep happening. It seems that India can't sustain a population that large, and something will change to prevent it from growing that rapidly that far in the future. Predicting demographic trends in 2050 seems pretty hard.

These projections will be accurate barring a nuclear war or other major cataclysm. The average age of India is 28.4. Figure that 70% of the current population of India is under the age of 40 and will still be alive in 2050 when this graph ends.

Predicting those stuff never is that easy, but considering India's fertility rate and current economic status I'd say this is possible. Also, India should have enough land for that. I'd say around 520 sqkm is still manageable
