• This is so true!

    I think if India started enforcing laws against littering, then people will become more responsible. We know that if we litter in a developed country there would be a hefty fine to pay, which acts as a mighty deterrent.

    If people lack civic sense, then it has to be enforced, i would say.

  • Hey that’s a great sign you caught! Where was it? At least it will make the NRI’s feel guilty! 🙂

  • It fascinates me how some values seem to be becoming more common through out the world as our societies come together.

  • Mahendra, I don’t understand this message. It sounds cute and gossip-able, but who are we kidding? It’s not a problem of littering, its the ‘not-my-job’ attitude we have for most other things.

    It should rather say something like “Think of the city as your home, do you litter in your house?”

  • Great exhortation! 🙂

  • Mahendra

    I was in Pune briefly for a day in January. The city is more clean than most other cities I visited on the trip. The driver told me that the stretch from the airport to Le Meridien is exceptional but later we went to Tata Motors also and then left the city by the expressway and with a few exceptions, Pune was more orderly than most other cities.

    The sign either works or is redundant 🙂

  • Priyank, as Mahendra said that is not what I meant. As for the sign, I think the sign is a clear message. It is not just talking to NRI’s because today most Indians have visited foreign countries so it applies to everyone. In fact in one his speeches the ex president Kalam had mentioned this very fact. That Indians when they go abroad do not litter, but they litter in their own country.

    Shefaly, yeah Pune is cleaner than many Indian cities but there are beautification drives off and one. And I think there are a few people like you who are very conscious about not to litter but they are few and far between! And I am not talking of just NRI’s but amongst the general population.
