Picture of the Day




A couple of days ago, it was the Gai Mata - I'm neutral towards the Cow, in the sense I do not worship it, but neither do I do the opposite (whatever you call that). But personally I feel where half the population of the country does worship the Cow, I think the picture was uncalled for.

Again today (Jul 15th) there's a picture of 'Our toilets' - Sure enough it may be a reality in India, but on a website which is hosted miles away from our country in a foreign land, I don't think it is appropriate to put up such a picture.

Keep in mind the site is visited by many non-Indians, it just gives these people an opportunity to talk negatively about India.

How do other CD members feel about this.

These are my 2 cents.

Totally agree. Both the pics were in bad taste. May be Gujarati was using those toilets back home and is missing them now. But not every Indian is deprived of basic sanitation facilities for sure.

I am in total agreement with the OP.

I agree that these conditions exist in India and show the reality.

But I feel they are not quite appropriate in CD.

Just my two cents.

I don't think anybody needs to upload that kind of pictures. Every big city has a slum, it is not just India.

BTW...Non-Indians are aware of slums of India after 'Slumdog Millionaire'... so please upload good pictures guys...

Totally agree. I sent PM to Garvo right away after I saw 'Gai Mata' picture.

Well I totally DISAGREE with guys here. If you dont find these things offensive while walking on the streets in India, how come it is so offensive here. In the past people have posted lots of pictures here portrait India as a modern nation but you just cannot ignore bad things we have in India too. Cant understand why people want to live in state of denial, whatever posted at the site is true so accept it. At least our kids must see both sides of India.

I would like to praise and appreciate Garvo for posting these pictures.

Great Work, Garvo!

Screw the reality aspect. No body is in denial, I hated them because of the aesthetics.

And if you are so into showing your kids the 'both sides', frame those pics and put them on their bed side.. spare us. Geez.
