Re: "Is India dirty?", I am Indian and speaking for myself, I almost always have a bath everyday and it involves soap and water and scrubbing everywhere.
Regarding the rest of my countrymen, though i can't speak for all of them, I'm fairly certain that many people brush and bathe once a day. When i say countrymen, i mean the maid that works at your house, the chauffeur, the guard, most people you bump into on a day to day basis. How would i know? Well, It's fairly easy to verify. I live in a city with slums and the teeming masses all around. If you can be troubled to stir slumbering bones and walk through a slum around 5ish , then you can hear and see it. The working class has to get up fairly early if they have to get to work at 8AM. However I can't vouch for people living in absolute poverty - water is very often not available to them.
However more to the point: Yes, Indian roads and infrastructure are very dirty, partly due to corruption and partly due to indifference and willful folly on the part of the poor. The poor have no stake in the country that is "India", so many a time they deliberately choose to destroy what little is left of their India. Indian homes however are a lot cleaner.
I didn't know how dirty India could be until I went there to witness it.
I just came back from a 21 days trip in Rajasthan and I was shock of how filthy Indian people live and this goes for both the rich and the poor Indians that I saw there.
Many of the Indians do their washing and bathing (without soap) in a lake or pond. They treat cows, monkeys, and goats better than their own kind as I have witness.
Perhaps it's in the culture, but the Indians that I saw in India could sleep anywhere, even if it's in the middle of a street and next to a bunch of cow dunk full of flies.
Do a Youtube search with ...UNREPORTED WORLD iNDIA-"THE BROKEN PEOPLE" PART1/3.
India is dirty in the inner-city and in villages where there is much poverty. In general India is actually very beautiful, you just have to know where to look. Most people only ever see the big cities full of 10s of millions of people without an infrastructure to take care of most of the garbage and clean the streets.
Those who care more about the monkeys and cows are in a dark spiritual place. These Hindu gods (monkeys and cows, rats, etc.) put the people of India in bondage. The dirt and filth is a direct result of the lack of acknowledgment of the God who created the universe and of worship of idols. It is a people group controlled by some other spiritual being opposite of God.
I INIDIA WE BATH EVERYDAY.....LAKES AND PONDS ARE SACRED TO US THATS WHY WE BATHIN IT WITHOUT SOAP NOT TO MAKE IT DIRTY........WE JUST DO THAT TO PURIFY OUR SOULS.........OTHERWISE WE BATH IN BATHROOMS........HINDUISM IS THE WORLDS OLDEST RELIGION.......A VERY PRIMITIVE ONE.......WE RESPECT EVERY LIVING BEING BIG OR SMALL.......CASTE SYSTEM IS NOT THE PART OF OUR RELIGION.....IT ORIGINATED THRU GREEDS OF THE SELFISH....INDIA IS NOT DARK AGE.........IT NEVER WAS.....DARKNESS IS SUMTHING WHEN U DONT INHUMANE TO OTHERS AND SOCIALLY BLIND........WE LUV NATURE BCOZ IT IS SUMTHING MADE BY GOD.......EUROPE AND AMERICA HAV DIFFERENT CULTURES.......AND I RESPECT THAT........IF YOU CANNOT UNDERSTAND MY COUNTRY....PLEASE DONOT DISRESPECT HER....IT NOT THE IDEOLOGY OF THAT IS FOLLOWED BUT THAT OF MORE THAN 1 BILLION PEOPLE.....MORE THAN 300 MILLION OF USA................AND ALSO ONE THING.......INDIANS ORIGINALLY HATE AMERICANS MORE THAN PALESTINIANS AND NORTH KOREANS........BUT U DONT UNDERSTAND HINDI........HUN!
I heard that most people in india dont use toilets, but rather pee and poop outside in nature, allys n stuff...is that true?
780 MILLION PEOPLE POO IN NATURE(OUTSIDE) ACCORDING TO W.H.O and thta is true i believe.
As far as peeing is concerned 95 population pee in public because they just do it. Its india.
Well if u ask me i d rather die with an overloaded bladder rather than peeing in public. My family built few public toilets here but its just the mindset of people which prevents them from using it because they pee in public. They are not willing to pay 1 rupee to use public toilets.
I am sick and tired of seeing all this bull shit. Leaving the heritage sites and ancient philosophies and mysticism the rest is bull crap here.
I dunno if my country would become a super pwer by 2020 but one thing i can assure you is the bad infrastructure and filfth will remain for another 200 yrs.
rakesh..ur first indian i have seen who accepts reality
hi folks ...india far better in emotional characters that indians do care about nature because they know they are a part of it ,,look @ their food ,, they prefer veggies unlike europeans,,because you have got to kill somthing to eat, obviously they are not clean as westerners ,because in villages they lack education ,,anyways indians are far better than westerners ,, you will never last any toilet to piss unless you stop the global warning and climate change ,, you ll serch a tree to get shelter from burning sun,,,,,it will happen very soon ... best of fortune.........

Indians are the most dirty people in the universe. Some examples
- 70 of the total population lack basic sanitation facility
- 34 of the people don't have homes
- 30 sleep and live on the streets
- 40 live in the slums
- Govt is corrupt
- People are so shameless
- People have no civic-sense
- The streets are so dirty that it is unbearable
- SIM cards are free to the people but rice costs 20 INR/KG
- The govt rot the food grains but do not give it to its poor and hungry people
- You literally see beggars and hawkers everywhere and really piss you off
- They are illiterate and ignorant
- They cannot feed their 40 of the population but are trying to organize CWG event which is a total mess and failure.
- The worst is that govt claims that they are in race with Europe and America
I can go on and on....
Most of south asia is dirty...people here care only about films and gossips.....although there is some advancement....the population explosion ...just nullifies every good effort.
