  19. Got to say that most of your 40 ways were innovative and quite good.
    But scribbling on benches and currency notes, sticking posters on railway wagons and writing on toilet walls? Don’t you think you are encouraging people to deface public property?

    • Agree with you. I think writing on currency notes are against law. So i made a strikeout on that point

      • Osho Garg says:

        I Also Notice This Point Writing On Currency Notes Are Against Law :)
        Also Strikeout School Benches Some Times It May Lead To Rusticate.
