Wall Tile of Hindu Deities
When you walk around the streets of Mumbai and its suburbs you may notice tiles of various deities hanging low on the city walls.
Public urination is a common occurrence - and a public/health nuisance - in Mumbai. Officials needed to find a deterrent and seem to have hit on an unusual solution. Walls around the city have been adorned with colorful tiles of deities (from different religions) to discourage public urination. And it seems to have worked - at least where the tiles are.
