While this is true one should also consider the following:
Over 67% of rural homes still lack toilet: Govt
http://articles.timesofindia.indiati...ter-households
So when people from rural areas migrate to the cities for work, and don't find public toilets it is is but natural for them to whip it out where ever it is most convenient. Even those who have been living in urban areas do the same because unlike in other countries the public toilets here almost non-existent, and those that are available are in such horrible conditions that its infinitely better to do it in the open!

Big. Red. Spit. There are walls I've seen that look like a mafia family has been gunned down against it.

where and when would this be, darmabum? I miss that part in the places i have been to, these days. I think the government has brought way too many rules, and this art form has suffered, as a result.

There were times when i could go to any government office, and every corner, where walls met, were used by the artists. not anymore.

search for "sydney deepwater outfalls", or "extended ocean outfalls". I am sure everyone was/is in this game. some place just take more time and effort to clean up.

Street gazing...In any bi-lanes, the whole family will sit in balconies, roadside, pavements etc and watch the happenings on street, mostly people passing by, and what the family across is up to, what they have bought and who has visited them.

Passed from generations to generations, this humble and monotonous activity is giving stiff competition to TV and other forms of entertainment.

It also gives a pretty clear idea of how constructively we Indians are employed.
If you find my posts confrontationist, please bear, I am an old frustrated guy who has nothing better to do than sit on rocking chair and curse the world whole day

really not wishing to "pour cold water" on your river water, but I'm sure that any fresh spring or clean stream water will also remain "unspoilt."

Of course, it will not have the same meaning or value, or even reason to keep at all.
