It has always baffled me why the Indians I work with both here and through outsourcing are so intelligent, yet come from and live in a country that’s basically a huge toilet, ran with rampant stupudity.

Whover is in charge or is making money from the current arrangements in their business, will resort to violence to make sure no-one takes away their income. Tighter controls on pollution in the river? The factory owners won't like that. They can't even create a cow sanctuary or temple for all the stray cows because someone would get annoyed.

wow, what a mess!

And it's not even coming from those townfolk either I bet. More than likely some developer in the City wants those living there to move out and they know that all the rubbish ends up in that Town. Or the people in the City don't care that it ends up there, its not affecting them.

For those who have never been to India there are very few places on earth that are as filthy . The population seems to never think about a proper out door trash can for all the outdoors is their convenient trash can ... every place or anyplace is used to discard unwanted...

90 Years of accumulated garbage in one place... At least some are trying to do something about it... but it will not happen anytime soon IMO

Their government needs to contact the UK to find out how to recycle the plastics into roads. California could help explain how the dealt with their water shortage. Air tanks in the toilet tanks. Use birth control. Recycle, reduce, reuse, donate. compost. Make new production of plastics illegal. Desalinate the ocean. Time to grow up and get a plan.

They already do. That is why India is doing bad. They have to recycle their own and UK's. Its utter BS.

UK trash to India

India is the real definition of Idiocracy. No joke. Coming to America.

They are doing bad because they are asking for advice on pollution?

Or is it,

Can't blame humans, blame US for all those weapons, they allowed it first place. Oh BTW, they are still researching on more weapons to destroy millions of people especially ones that do a clean job without destroying cities. Everything would be great is US wasn't antagonizing every race on the planet and forming blockades with the Nazis.

Also, Citizens of the United States of America are human. Also a good number of the humans who worked and work on said weapons are non citizens of USA.

Availability of freshwater has declined in the northern and eastern parts of India, says a new study that combined an array of NASA satellite observations of Earth with data on human activities to map locations where freshwater is changing around the globe.
The study, published in the journal Nature, found that Earth's wetland areas are getting wetter and dry areas are getting drier due to a variety of factors, including human water management, climate change and natural cycles.
Areas in northern and eastern India, the Middle East, California and Australia are among the hotspots where overuse of water resources has caused a serious decline in the availability of freshwater, and without corrective actions by the governments to preserve water, the situation is likely to worsen in these areas, the Guardian reported this week citing the study.

I'm a small-government person, but imho governments exist to deal with this sort of thing.
too many people. how can we encourage people to live in better-hydrated areas? I know a bunch of people that dream of going to California or Australia.
we need water for people and for agriculture. so where do we cut down? we can start with lawns and fancy schmancy landscaping.

Indian region needs tanker trucks to supply water

"Tankers are being sent to places where water cannot reach via the pipeline distribution system,” she added.

Some residents, however, said they were still short of water.

“We have had water last Monday after eight days and now there is no supply again. Crisis still looms and has not been dealt with effectively,” Sparsh Makhaik, a resident, told Reuters on Monday.

not getting better
