Just ignore them and move ahead. Many radio or TV hosts see only the bad part of India. We need not get discouraged by such comments of certain hosts/anchors who are in fact good for nothing.

Sir,This shows the unhealthy minds of the people who talk ill of the others faith.They must know the river Ganga is not merely a river that flow almost 2500 KM from it birth place till it reaches the ocean,but is a "Holy Ganga" which binds the millions of the people all along its flow.Further it is providing water for the millions and millions of hectares of agricultural land and as such food and employment to crores of the people of India.The fellows who called it as the 'shit hole' must feel ashamed of themselves for calling Ganga 'junkyard' the mankind in future will be witnessing the wars between the nations on one day in future for the water that flows in this same 'shit hole' or 'junkyard'.I hate this culture of talking ill of a holy river Ganga or any other river for that matter,because they are the source of sap for life.

Quite likely a few of the Indians seeking greener pastures in Australia gives that feeling to him about India. We can ignore it as the barking of the dog against the elephant or feel they have noticed only the dark side of the bulky bright India.

I LOVE My country regardless of its flaws else I wouldn't be here, but let's face the fact......the Australian radio show statement is pretty accurate! We can find human deification on almost any hole in this country!!!! So in effect, going by English lexicon- it is a "s**t hole!" In many towns I've noted families making their young ones urinate and excrete in the open road near bus stands even! Why? Because the fraggin bus stop had no toilet!!!!!! Even when there is a gas station nearby with has bathrooms, people still somehow make it a point to tak a leak in the open! What do u say of this?!

I've been 2 the Ganga myself, and man, it's a mess. ALong with the ashes of the bodies who departed to their heavenly abode, one can also find an abundance of lays chips covers, coca cola plastic bottles, torn saree cloth, fruit peels- just almost any chassis of refuse can b found in the Ganga! If u find lays, plastic bottles, saree cloths, fruit peels etc etc floating in a river, that riv ...more
