A pani puri vendor was recently caught peeing in the same bowl he uses to serve people. The link above is the video of him in the act.

Ever since the news was broadcast, people have expressed their disgust, some are going to avoid puri food completely. A few parties have taken up the issue. One of them is the MN.Sena. Their usual response is to break things and hit people. Guess that’s their strategy to attract the newspapers and OB vans.

To a neutral eye, it seemed like this was one more chance for them to showcase their regional hate for migrants from North India. In the past, they’ve attacked taxi wallahs also with same intentions.

Again, this doesn’t mean I don’t agree with their movement to get more jobs for locals.

But the key point that hasn’t been highlighted here is:

Why was this man doing what he was doing?
What is the state of public loos in the area?
Are there any loos around?

If not, then the Sena and friends, need to think of using their breaking and hitting skills  to build something constructive. A few public loos? Clean ones.

I’ll vote for them for them in every election if they do.
