Be proud, Indians are world's 'greenest'!!!




That cold water bath many Indians have because there's no electricity...that 'matka' they use because they can't afford a fridge...and
the long walk they take to work and back because private transport is expensive and public transport shoddy. There's an upside to the hard life.

Indians may be green with envy at the consumption-driven lifestyle in the West, but their own frugal ways and modest means have catapulted them to the top spot in the world's Green index, making them the most environmental-friendly denizens of Planet Earth.

However, there are plenty of signs that India's Green-ness, which seems driven more out of compulsion than conviction, may not last long. According to the study, Indians are the most likely to say that they intend to acquire a motorised vehicle in the next year (58%). There is also declining frequency of consumption of local foods, fruits and vegetables and an increase in the consumption of imported foods and bottled water. India is also the only country surveyed experiencing increased bottled water consumption.

That one line sums it all up why India is "Green."
