Ugly Indian Campaign at Bangalore with 50 IBM Employees - Clean Up your city

Posted by Siva Kumar Ari
The Ugly Indian is a campaign started by a group of people who feel strongly about the state of visible filth in our cities.
Their philosophy can be described simply as: Kaam chalu mooh bandh ( Stop Talking, Start Doing )


Some of the Ugly Indian guidelines are:

1. No lectures, no moralizing, no activism, no self-righteous anger.
2. No confrontation, no arguments, no debates, no pamphlets, no advocacy.
3. Don’t step on anyone’s toes, don’t take sides in any ideological debates.,
4. Support existing systems and improve their effectiveness for the greater
    good.
5. Basically, get real. Treat everyone with sincerity, respect and dignity first,
    and the greater good will be an outcome.


The Ugly Indian feel a 'solution' is a real solution only if:

1. It sustains in the public street for at least 90 days.
2. With no supervision.
3. Is low-cost (ideally free) and easy to implement and replicate
4. Changes the behavior and attitudes of all concerned
5. Creates minimal change in the daily actions of everyone concerned
    (nobody should lose a job, lose a source of income, or get seriously
    inconvenienced – because it takes only one Ugly Indian to undo the
    good work of a hundred others).

On 30th May 2013 The Ugly Indian Group Decided to Spotfix at Manyata Tech Park in Bangalore , for which 50 IBM Employees came as volunteers to spot fix the area
