Combating Dirty Deeds

Satish had a great post on the Naked blog about how Bombay convinced people to keep the city clean: “See, about five years ago, when Bombay was just starting the process of cleaning up, it encountered one major issue. People were not respecting the walls, and that meant random spitting and urination (yes, I said it) on every corner wall across the city . . . [So . . . ] the Bombay Municipal Corporation decided to put up pictures of gods and goddesses on all walls, so that people think twice before doing their dirty deeds.”
