The Cobra effect-
When a solution to a problem makes the problem even worse, it is known as cobra effect.
This term is commonly used in politics and economics and was originated in British India
Story behind it –
The British government was very concerned about the growing numbers of cobras in Delhi.
They decided to pay money for every cobra that any person brings to them.
Initially the program was very successful.
But sooner, some people started breeding cobras for additional income
Soon, the government became aware about the tricks people were playing.
The program was ended and cobra breeders were left with surplus cobras, which were of no use now.
As a result, the solution of the problem made problem even worse!
