Rude Brood

People relieving themselves on the streets, spitting, picking their noses, scratching their rears, and underarms is a common sight in the country. Even a man driving an expensive car will roll down the windows to spit. Do you feel that this is a common sight ?Increasing urbanization has brought in a lot of changes.

As common courtesies get increasingly uncommon, The Sunday Times of India carried an interesting special report on April 23rd on India's Rude Brood. Based on the poll, the rudest city in India is Patna. The second spot goes to the commercial hub of India- Mumbai, and the third to the capital city- Delhi.

The article states that Bad manners have indeed become the hallmark of a hurry-up world where no one has the time to hold doors open or wait for people to get off the train/bus/elevator before shoving their way in. The patience threshold has become really low . So, the trend is evident in the country.
