Which is more polluted the citarum river in Indonesia or the yamuna river in India? I really would like to see some results of difference in between. So they consider that river as a God but why dirty it ? Its a messed up action by dirtying it.

Indians have a poor sense of community. Polluting rivers/ponds/forests/air is ok. As they are "outside" your home.

Such a beautiful and interesting culture, but the sheer size of their population has negatively affected them. The lack of respect for others personal space and the disregard to hygiene would keep me from visiting
