You should know that spitting/ shitting/ peeing in public place is national hobby of Indians in India. They have this unwritten fundamental right provided in constitution. And they derive powers from it. It is unfettered and goes unhindered. Right to spit/ shit / pee is public places is implemented in India at virtually all places.

Nope, I was there earlier this year. I have visited 8 times since 2003. I have enumerated that I have seen.

Who is there to make it dirty ? Indians only, few years down you will see people spitting pan there. Dirty toilets with buts and spit everywhere. Old habits die hard, people still spit in delhi metro, they have imposed a fine, but who cares ?. Cant change.

Can feel proud if both Indians and India changes and not only by India changes.



I would have agreed with you if I had not have seen Delhi Metro....it is almost 10 years operational....and it is still sparkling clean. It is 100 times better and cleaner than TTC or NYC Metro...



100% True...

I recetly travelled with delhi metro(Connaught place to Noida City centre route)

It's way cleaner/spotless & beautiful than any european metro or TTC



I was in Delhi 3 months ago and briefly travelled on the Metro. I was quite impressed with its efficiency and cleanliness. Much much much better and way advanced than the outdated subway we have here. There in Delhi, they have added close to a hundred kms in a few years and still going strong with more lines being built, here I heard they will take like 10 or maybe 15 years to build 3 kms of line from Finch to York Univ.

But yes then getting the people of Delhi to keep the Metro sparkling clean is going to be a challenge. Depends on how the Metro is managed in future, if there is sarkari interference, then it's anyones guess how it may end up.

I don't know when we stop comparing India with Canada or any Western nation. It's not even funny anymore and hence quite exhausted at least on this board. Treat and talk about India in it's own respect and perspective. Just like any individual or human being, a nation should be compared to itself and it's own progress and not by someone else's. Look at what India was about 10 years ago and where is it now. One should give it to India that despite of all the issues, it's growing rapidly and attracting the whole world's attention (evident from G20). Imagine if the corruption is gone and politicians become more accountable, where could it be. Admit, it's a distant dream but still. I believe if you (or any nation) can dream it, you can do it.

I am proud at this Indian achievement. I hope they soon get (or aspire to be) an equally efficient state machinery, ranging from a small time Airport Janitor to a Bureaucrat. But, we are getting there slowly and I am proud at even a small Indian achievement while at the same time not comparing it to any other nation but it's own self.

Jai Hind!

You do not have to dream. Such an administration exists in India in Gujarat. Narendra Modi has given corruption free administration in Gujarat. Please note that I am no fan of Narendra Modi as my premises have been illegaly occupied by a goon who is very close and confidant of one of the most respected religious Guru in India and Canada. I have made several representation in writing, by email and tried in person in vain. However, still what I have witnessed and heard from other friend and my former clients is astounding. The problem is Narendra Modi has been demonized so much by the ELM that he can not become Prime Minister ever. He has no support from Muslim community which decides who will be Prime Minister in India. By some miracle, he becomes Prime Minister for even five years, India will be able to compete China or even beat them. However, it is a dream. But as you rightly said if you (or any nation) can dream it, you can do it.

India's misfortune was untimely demise of Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel and long life of Jawahar. That put India back by 50 years. Now again India has chance to get their place back in history but sadly most Indian are complacent and enjoying their small pleasures. They happily drive with their blinkers on and do not care where the road leads.
