First off all, don't misunderstand me.... My family and I are having an amazing tour of India and Nepal. We have seen wonders upon wonders.
However, we do not understand why they do not see all the trash laying around. Right outside the doors of even the finest hotels the streets have piles of garbage.
Is it to feed the wild dogs? Cows? The Poor?
In a country with so much majesty and resource, someone should figure this one out. Here is my two cents. Each community start a landfill and pay people 100 rupees per burlap sack of garbage brought in. A small tax on the bourgeoning middle class could easily pay for this. I noticed in Bejing, they did something like this as it employed many people and kept the streets clean.
Even if the hotel I am staying at, the Park Plaza in Faridabad would just take responsibility for the streets around it I bet they would stand out as a business at the top of their community.
Down the street, was Grace Assembly of God Church. Interesting enough, there was not one plastic bag or piece of garbage outside their property. Hmmm. Think about it.
