It is a common scene in India, people (mostly men) peeing on the side of the road. I feel embarassed to do. I did only once when I was on an over night bus trip and I couldn't control myself, but let it go. I have heard that it is a crime in western countries. Is it so? Have you ever peed on the side of a road? Are you embarassed to do so or afraid that you will be caught?

That is fine in that particilar situation, but we Indians have to make sure that we are not polluting our environment by doing so. I don't know when will our people change! I think this can be made only by imposing strict rules against polluting public places. Now, there is a law in India that we should not smoke in public place, but it is happening everywhere and nobody is getting punished for it.

This can be made possible through early awareness created from schools and in villages.People should be trained to use public toilets and for that the government should build adequate numbers.But in a largest populated country like India,this will remain a tough task to implement.There is a joke like this.The world's longest toilet is along the railway track in India.We should feel ashamed for it and we can't do more than that.Cheers!

Ughh, how I hate Indian men for this and they are so shameless that even if you are passing just by them, they have no problem…they will just continue doing what they have been doing all along. And you know what surprises me the most? For one, respectable educated men of all age peeing on the road without a care. Secondly, mothers encouraging their toddlers to pee on the road even if the school is just round the bend or the house is already in sight…no they will not teach their boys to control but (talking of them as kids) will actually encourage them to do it then and there on the road…this habit stays with the boys throughout their lives.

I agree with you. The teaching should happen from childhood. Parents must teach their children about the importance to keep the environment clean and discourage their kids doing all kids of ways to keep it dirty. I know, even educated people pee on the road. I wonder when will India can become a clean country...

well i live in an eastern country,so here there is no crime. well i also used to pee on road , but nowadays i have changed. i don't pee on roads nor do i have thrown any garbage on roads.i think if people will feel embarrassed to do so only then can this world change.

Yes, that is nice to hear from you. People should understand the importance to keep the environment clean and stop doing things which are harm to the environment. I don't think things like throwing garbange on roads or peeing can be completely eliminated by law. It is sad to see garbage thrown on the road, where there is a garbage bin a few meters away.

I´d supposed i have done this in practice one time in my life...But i was in a drunken haze stubbling home from the bar...And i absolutley had to right that second. And I supose "people" would be even more offended seeing a stubbling, drunken guy, with drenched pants, than the actual peeing i did :)
