Yeah right no one follows rules here, coz they ain't afraid of anyone. Like 'Merica We should start distributing guns to every home to bring in some order.

To those who didn't like my comment, the BBC site states: "Spend any time in India, and you will see men urinating in public. In the state of Rajasthan last month volunteers began shaming offenders by drumming and blowing whistles. But some argue the country also needs more, and better, public toilets."

#25 Being an Indian, I do believe that your comment was offensive. The image of India that a number of foreigners have is extreme to say the least. Yes, the public sanitation system does need to improve, but basing your judgements on a BBC documentary may not be the best justification.
People do not stand in the middle of the road and urinate. There is poverty, and a number of people cannot afford to have toilets. Even then, no sane or sober person would urinate at an intersection.
I would say, visit India. Don't let a BBC documentary be the reason for your judgement about our country.
I understand that you didn't mean to be offensive to a particular nationality, but certain amount of discretion can go a long way.
