Kolkata that starts from Howrah subway; this is the gateway of Kolkata. Kolkata is considered as the cultural capital of the nation and is also known for its passion for sweets. Every single space in this city is occupied. Buses are scattered everywhere, there is no particular channel for special buses. Howrah is more like Kolkata's dirty backyard. The narrow lanes lined by old buildings, open over flowing drain, heaps of garbage rotting on the streets this makes Howrah look more like a vast and putrefying slum.
Varnasi is next in list. Supposed to be the holiest place, because of the Ganges which is famously one of the most polluted rivers in the whole of India. The streets are filled with cow manure making it difficult for the pedestrians to walk. The sacred river Ganga is filled with human corpse, sewage waste and other pollutants. It is difficult to define Varanasi, a place that is filled with poverty, filth, pollution and an inflated amount of people crammed into a very small city.
Mumbai one of the richest cities in India is infact the seventh dirtiest city in the World, according to Forbes Magazine. Asia's largest slum Dharavi that is nothing but narrow dirty lanes, open drains and cramped huts, is in Mumbai. It is impossible to neglect the crowded trains; Any lane you pass you will witness red spots of Pan and Ghutka. Here people litter everywhere. People have lived with this notion of Mumbai being the most Populated and dirty city.
Chennai visit is incomplete without a trip to the Marina beach. But this place presents a picture of an urbanized blend of forced cleanliness and reckless pollution. It is difficult to find a clean place on the beach and relax with your family. The moment the traveler reaches Chennai station he is flooded with people around him, the air is filled with unpleasant smell. It is difficult to get out of the crowd and manage to the transport zone. Like every city this is also filled with narrow lanes.
Delhi, beyond the heart of the city is one of the worst cities to live in. The old Delhi is a chaotic and dirty place. The city lacks proper infrastructure, waste removal mechanism etc. This small city is overcrowded giving you a claustrophobic feeling. The travelers are being looted by the pushy travel agents. Delhi is famous for its painted lanes, covered with Stains of pan, and the sewage that can't be ignored . This is the common sight in most place of the city.
