Bangalore: Which are the dirtiest cities in the world? Here are the 10 dirtiest cities in the world named by These cities either lack proper sanitation facilities or have high levels of pollution.

Baku, Azerbaijan:

Enclosed by Iran, Georgia, Russia and Armenia on the Caspian Sea, Azerbaijan has long been an oil hub. As a consequence, Baku, the capital city, suffers from life-threatening levels of air pollution emitted from oil drilling and shipping. It is one of the dirtiest cities in the world. The lack of clean water and basic sanitation leaves a much stronger impression on the casual traveler than dirty air from a lot of vehicle traffic and industry, as the latter is present in most cities around the world to a certain extent whereas basic water and sanitation is given and perhaps that is much more shocking when it's gone.

Dhaka, Bangladesh:

Dhaka is the capital of Bangladesh and is located in southern Asia between Burma and India. Dhaka battles with the constant threat of water pollution. Surface water is frequently thick with disease and pollutants from the use of commercial pesticides. With a probable 150 million people living in a relatively small area, cleaning up the problem won't be easy.

5: Saare Jahaan Se Achcha Hindustaan Hamara

Saare jahaan se achcha hindustaan hamara
hum bulbule hain is ki, yeh gulsitaan hamara

Ghurbat men hon agar hum, rehta hai dil watan men
samjho wahin hamen bhi, dil hai jahan hamara

Parbat woh sab se uncha, humsaya asman ka
woh santari hamara, woh pasbaan hamara

godi mein khelti hain is ki hazaron nadiyan
gulshan hai jin ke dum se, rashkejanan hamara

aye ab, raud, ganga, woh din hein yaad tujhko
utara tere kinare, jab karvaan hamara

maz’hab nahin sikhata aapas mein bayr rakhna
hindi hain hum, watan hai hindustaan hamara

yunanomisroroma, sub mit. gaye jahan se
ab tak magar hai baqi, namo nishan hamara

kuch baat hai keh hasti, mit.ati nahin hamari
sadiyon raha hai dushman, daure zaman hamara

iqbal ko’i meharam, apna nahin jahan mein
m’aluum kya kisi ko, darde nihan hamara.
