My wife is in Bengaluru for few days for assorted reasons. She sent an email to ‘Ugly Indian’ seeking a meeting. ‘He’/’she’ refused. They want to remain anonymous. They even asked her if she would be willing to take up the cleaning of ‘Little India’ in Singapore! Any volunteers?
They are doing a marvellous job of cleaning up spots in Bengaluru with citizen participation. They want no credit. They want the work to speak for itself and speak, it does!
They have taken the name, ‘Ugly Indian’ presumably because a cover story in “India Today’ years ago wrote about the ‘Ugly Indian’ and asked readers to look into mirrors. They hope to erase the ‘Ugly Indian’ tag on all Indians with their self-less (ego-less) work.
Their videos are available on YouTube and they are on Facebook too.
