Why don’t we do it in the road? 
The practice of open defecation is increasingly dangerous to public health when people crowd close together. Worms and bacteria spread by human waste spread deadly disease and can be a big cause of malnutrition. India is, far and away, the country worst blighted by open defecation, made worse by the fact it has a large population crowded onto relatively little land. Why India suffers worse than much poorer countries, such as Congo or Afghanistan, and worse than fellow South Asian countries, such as Bangladesh, is a matter for contentious debate.

Oh! You pretty things: Today’s young people are held to be alienated, unhappy, violent failures. They are proving anything but.

A broken system: Latin America is the only region in the world where murder rates increased in the first decade of this century. Plenty of factors explain Latin America’s crime disease. The drug trade, a bulge of young, poorly educated men, income inequality and access to firearms are some.
