Monkeys and litter
When it’s the ghats, you can rest assured there will be monkeys. We saw several on our way. And they weren’t sitting on the kerb for nothing – look at the litter on the ground. Mostly made up of Chocobar packs of Lazza ice cream that we soon learnt was a very popular brand sold in these parts. Surely, bins could have been provided by the state tourism department for good measure. And what about the people who eat and throw away stuff? Would they do this in their homes? Here, of course, there’s nobody to yell. And the same people talk about ‘clean environment’, ‘global warming’ and ‘litter-fre zones’.
