A website calling itself The Ugly Indian is tackling the most visible failure in Indian society – the complete absence of civic sense.
Of course, other factors are at play too - lack of infrastructure, poverty, crowding.
But these are secondary to the real cause of filthy Indian cities – which is what the blog calls “Ugly Indians”…the many, many Indians who litter, spit, pee, toss their garbage, let their animals poop, and commit all manner of anti-social behavior….. for a very simple reason….other not-Ugly Indians don’t intervene.
The site has dozens of stories about Bangalore eye-sores transformed from public urinals into charming walks with just a rag, paint, and some plants.
