I visited India last summer, and it was so horrible.
I was in Delhi, Bombay, and Calcutta, and determined that I will never visit India again. I had so much expectation from India before I go there, but all I got was disappointment and so much disgust.
First, in India, there are so many cows in the streets. Especially in new Delhi and Calcutta, It would be a religious reason, but ppl never remove cows' excrements on the floor. Many Hindu bow to cows, but never clean cows feces? PPl seemed not to pay any attention to sanitary and health.
Second, many ppl take shower in the lake, and even take excrements near the lake. And never clean it. So, water is supposed to be very dirty. However, ppl also drink the water in that lake too. And there are no public toilet. The only public toilet is, there is a hole on the floor and ppl urinate and defacate in.
India lack at water, and if you don't have water with you, you will have to drink it from the lake where ppl took excrements on....

Thanks for enlightning me about the water my friend, I will give up drinking water now.
I dont know the places I have used in Delhi to relieve myself was then meant for something else? These places did not have a hole on the floor! I must have then comitted some grave error, thanks for telling me so in future I will hold on till I find a toilet as described by you.

Well I agree about the hygiene part, that's not very high standard in India. But can't you mention any good parts of India except lack of public toilets????

You are right. This is the area we need to improve. Health and hygiene is not ‘up to the mark’ till date.

Wow!!!!
My friend, there are some areas in India where drinking water and public toilet is a major problem, I admit. But it is certainly not the way you are trying to represent. Your India trip is incomplete. Delhi – Bombay – Calcutta is not India.And cows and public toilet (with a hole in the floor) is not Delhi – Bombay – Calcutta.

These three cities are probably on the top 10 list on most polluted cities in the world (I am environmental scientist in Kolkata from feb. to jul.). Somnath is right!!! What about The Himalayan area (Simla, Darjeeling, Sikkim) or Kerala or Goa or Rajasthan (Jodhpur is fine and steril compared to Delhi). Somnath is right you haven't even been close to the most beautiful parts of India (based on your post)!!!

There are better places in the south

May be many people see just north india and think that is India. People who tend to travel down south and find there are better places in India and as you go down further..You would reach the paradise on earth..which is truly the most beautiful place in India and may be one of the most beautiful places in the world. No wonder National Geographic magazine rated it as one of the top 50 destinations in the world one must visit in a life time..and the world calls it"Gods own country"..yes I meant kerala..which is surely a place different from the rest of India..in every way.

what about looking for a place where you can get water rather than drinking it from the lake?? hahaha

Somehow the post does not sound discouraging and lacks persuasiveness. In fact, it does bring a smile on

Of course you can say "wait until you come back from your first trip in India" ... We will see

My dear friend, You are absolutely right about the state of filth and I completely agree that we need better sanitation and hygienic conditions. However I would also like to ask if you have you given any thought to the how chemical pollution is affecting the water and enviroment ( an effect that is not so glaringly obvious) in the parts of the world that you inhabit?
