India is one of the worlds great historic and contemporary civilizations.
It has world class architecture, art, literature, music, etc. It has spectacular natural diversity and the worlds most divers linguistic complex. It is the font of of multiple great religions and philosophies. Today, it is the worlds largest multicultural democracy and and is a leading scientific, agricultural and cultural power with nuclear weapons, a space program, and a leading computer and IT industry. It has global reach with soft power –food, yoga, movies, books, fashion etc.
Why then has it not fixed the Indian Elephant in the room? The fact that in it’s public spaces, it’s frankly… an open sewer.
