And if there’s no mode of transport to get you to the loo, maybe we can have training for the tourists about being one with nature. It could be sold as part of the unique experience in India.

We got to ask ourselves… What makes these same chaps refrain from doing all this and more in other countries?
Fear of the LAW perhaps?

But the macho efforts to sneak a way around a bush or in front of a wall far outwits their civic sense and fear of divine retribution.

Loo-maps can only temporarily re-direct the reeking smell emanating from gallons of nitrogen-rich waste on kerbside and elsewhere.

But, after CWG, the nature-admiring men, in their effort to upkeep their manly heroics will yet again open their fly in public.

These things take years and years of conditioning, and in a country where spitting on the road and breaking queues is almost considered a birthright, this seems impossible! the tourists will just have to get used to the Indian way of life for those few days.
