My Story: ❝India Does Not Stink Because Of Dirty Streets. It Stinks Because Of Dirty Minds❞

This guy, along with a female friend of his (the girl in blue dress standing next to him, on whom I deliberately did not focus), were eating inside a Delhi Metro coach. When I reminded them that eating in a Metro coach is prohibited and that they will make the coach dirty, they straight away said… “We have bought tickets and hence can do whatever we want. And if we dirty the place, and you feel so much for the metro, you can clean it after we finish eating.” Which is when I realized that there is no way I could continue a rational conversation with them.

Sadly I couldn’t stop them. No one around raised any objection, which further emboldened them. And as they continued eating, they did spill some sauce and also dropped a piece of chicken, which the person standing next to them stamped on.

How do we ever change such uncouth and parasite like behavior coming from educated people? More importantly, how do we change our bystander like attitude?

And there are also no systemic means to take such people to task. Buying a ticket does not mean we misuse public property. It only means we treat it with responsibility.

India does not stink because of dirty streets. It stinks because of dirty minds.


The Logical Indian requests fellow Indians to never litter in the public place, respect public property, protect it. And if someone is doing any damage; please raise your voice against it. Moreover, never be a bystander; join the person who raised voice against any such act. It is our duty as a citizen.
