This photo was taken on the road that leads to Yamunotri in Uttarakhand.
One of the four holiest shrines of the state, the Yamunotri temple is visited by hundreds of devotees. Though garbage bins have been placed at appropriate places along the way by the administration, one can find this common sight everywhere.
And what proves that we, the people of the country, have no damn regard for the law or simple instructions is that sign on the pillar requesting people not to litter the place. Political opponents of the Modi government and the usual haters target the Centre with such images trying to point holes in an otherwise necessary mission.
The truth is that it is the people of India who are to be blamed. Unless we stop littering our surroundings, no mission however grand will succeed.
