When it comes to garbage, eve-teasing, spitting and lack of transparency in public spend, Mumbaikars are not willing to take it lying down, reveals a survey by Australia-based pvi collective, a group of independent artists.
The survey was part of Encounters-Power Play, a project by Mumbai-based Art Oxygen and Asia Art Projects.
Pvi collective has been interacting with visitors at Juhu beach to find 10 issues people feel most passionately about and are willing to fight for.
Solutions offered by respondents were noteworthy. 'Staring back and reclaiming the gaze', distributing pepper spray to women and increasing women cops to combat eve-teasing. Annually printing on walls of public institutions every penny spent by government. For spitting, the solution was to put offenders in a 'public shaming cage'.
